Eric was diagnosed with lung cancer last year and family and friends wanted to do something nice for the family so his Corvette was completely restored. His cancer went into remission last month.

    PIQUA - The charred remains of Eric Pence's 1978 Corvette rested dormant in storage for more than 12 years.

    This once pristine automobile was a gift to Pence from his grandmother and as time went on its dark blue tint faded and a garage fire more than a decade ago took what was left of the pristine machine.

    When Pence, 41, was diagnosed with lung cancer on the day after Father's Day in 2011, the father of two and husband thought he might not ever be granted a chance to take his special and meaningful set of wheels on another spin.

    But then something happened - something special.
