    Cars in general, and Corvettes in particular, have long been a part of John and Brenda Cianciolo’s life. They own a pristine 1967 and a 1958 that is the process of being restored, but they have also owned a 1961, a 1965, a 1967 and a 1972. Must be some fiberglass and V-8 juice in their blood.

    John’s first project was a 1953 five-window GMC pickup. The second restoration project, in 1978, was a 1966 Pontiac GTO like the one Brenda drove in high school.

    “We had just bought a house, and because I wanted to put as much down as I could, we had $312 left in the bank,” John said. “A friend called and said he knew about a ’66 GTO convertible that had been tapped in the back and needed some work. He said we could get the car for $300. I thought, ‘How can I tell my wife about it when we only have $312 in the bank?’
