Alan Woodall is a quiet, unassuming man who makes his living in the science field, miles away from lumpy cams and fingernail grease. Keep in mind that everyone has a past, often quite different than you would imagine, and Alan is no exception. In the 1970s, Alan drag raced a 1962 Corvette, a car that stuck in his memory for decades as well as taught him many fiberglass lessons. His drag racing past coupled with the memories of seeing new ’63 Stingrays on the showroom floor in his poor college days never left Alan’s head, so when he got the itch to move beyond his ’33 Ford street rod, a Corvette was the obvious choice.
After a few false starts and a fruitless 900 mile adventure to find a mid-year body, Alan stumbled across the perfect springboard just eight miles from his North Carolina home. Alan’s perfect springboard Vette may differ from most as he had some feral plans for his new car, so that fact that his new love was missing the dash, suspension, frame, and was a patchwork of five different bodies was a non-issue. No sense cutting up someone’s Bloomington Gold restoration right?
