We can become quite cynical at times. When you ask a question like this, there is usually one response that filters to the surface, but it this case, you couldn’t be further from the truth.
Tommy Lee Byrd was given the perfect opportunity to prove all the naysayers right. But instead, he has used the opportunity to embed a lifestyle of automotive fun into his family life.
Tommy has assembled this video to tell the story about his Corvette. This 1964 Corvette has been around the Byrd residence as long as Tommy Lee has been. A well-known painter in their hometown, Tommy Lee’s dad painted the car the day before Tommy Lee was born.
The car eventually worked its way into the family, and as the title states, Tommy Lee eventually became the car’s caretaker. Much like life itself, the story of this car weaves its way in through the very fabric of Tommy Lee’s family. Many of us have similar stories of cars and the parts they’ve played in our lives, but many times, we’re too busy to acknowledge them until it’s too late.
Whether you’re just looking for something to do for a few minutes, or could use a great pick-me-up story to help put everything back into focus, take a few minutes to find out what actually DOES happen when you give a 16-year-old a blown 1964 Corvette. You’ll be glad you did!
