Gaby Bouchard of LaSalle, Quebec, is the proud owner of this '64 Saddle Tan Corvette Sting Ray. Gaby's engine is not numbers-matching, but he does squeeze 365 hp out of it. The car finished First in the NCCC judging event at Carlisle three years in a row. "But the kick," Gaby says, "is watching people's expressions when they see the car. A Corvette still makes their heads turn."
