WEST POINT — As self-proclaimed nerds, a father and son duo are working together to restore and modify a 1969 Corvette.

The two readily admit they do not fit the stereotypical persona of hot-rod buffs.

“What do you expect? Guys with tattoos?” said 21-year-old Jason Tueller, a non-tattoo-clad student currently attending Weber State University. When he and his dad have spare time, they work on the 43-year-old Corvette Jason bought in Idaho a couple of years ago.

They began working on the car shortly after the unexpected death of Jason’s sister, Jessica Tueller, 25, in 2012. Working on the car provided healing for both of them after the difficult loss.

“It was a nice deviation from everything and a time of healing from her death, with lots of nights spent with our arms covered in grease,” said Jason’s father, Shayne Tueller, 53. “But more importantly, it brought Jason and me a lot closer.”
