“My dad owned and loved a silver blue 1963 split window Corvette coupe back in the late 1960s,” Tarkowski said. The fuel-injected V-8 bow-tie pulled double duty as both a performance coupe and the family hauler.

“I still remember being a young kid and sitting in the back when Dad, Mom and me would go for an afternoon drive,” the Illinois resident said.
