The Fabulous Road to Performance
After 40 years of automotive restoration specializing in Corvettes we reminisce about an important GM engineer and marketing maven, Zora Duntov. Ever since January 1956 when he took a newly modified Corvette to Daytona Beach and racked up an average speed of 150 mph, Corvette was linked to racing, forever, and key to marketing the brand despite GM's AMA mandate that carmakers must not participate in racing.
Zora Duntov remained steadfast to his vision that Corvette owners had the right hardware if they wanted to race their Corvette. In the early years he created "Race Kits" for many Corvettes.
Achievement may be anonymous as many great things have been done by people you've never heard of, however Fabulous Restorations is fueled by Zora Duntov's dream and direction for the GM flagship, an unblemished example of true potential. Go in confidence with proper improvements, performance and uncompromising perfection. Let us recreate a hand-crafted Fabulous Corvette for you.
Within the pages of this website you'll see some important people who know our racing endeavors and they too share respect for Zora's commitment to Corvette racing. However, our knowledge in building period correct race cars is only a fraction of this business. Above all else, Fabulous Restorations is dedicated to NCRS top-flight standards, and the rarest of rare cars that are being worked on in our shop.

Particularly today there are more buyers marked by a growing number of car show events than ever before. Car collecting has become socially fashionable and often equated to an investment in fine jewelry. It is a measure of personal wealth and of great importance constituting value well into the future. Wise investments are serious and highly complex, often requiring a call to an expert.
