Gambrills, Maryland - May 14, 2018: Dr. Kimberly Burroughs 1962 Corvette, on the left, and her dad, John Burroughs's 1959 Corvette, on the right.
Dr. Kimberly Burroughs is a dentist living in Gambrills, Maryland. In 1997, her dad, John Burroughs, from Sunderland, Maryland, bought a 1959 Corvette and she helped him restore it. He always said, "someday this car will be yours!" But that never happened. Her dad still owns it. In 2015, she came across a 1962 Corvette that had been completely taken apart and all the parts had been sitting in boxes in a garage since the 1970s. She bought it for super cheap and it took her a little over a year to rebuild this Corvette and get it painted. In 2017, it won a Top Flight award -- scoring a 96.4% -- from the National Corvette Restorers Society.
