One of our stops was Vintage Vettes, L.L.C. in North Kansas City. I love that place; I really do. It looks like my garage in that fantasy where I win the lottery.
But who wouldn't like it? You can go to plenty of Corvette shows that don't have anywhere near the kind of cars that are sitting in this collection. And the best part is that they're all for sale. Well, maybe that's also the worst part when you realize what nice old Corvettes are going for these days. But it's still fun to dream, no?
The dealership, for lack of a better term, is owned by well-known Corvette and Chevrolet collector Jack Wallace. The North Kansas CIty location has only been around for a couple of years, as the last location in downtown KC was hit by a pretty significant fire.
They also have a full-service restoration shop. While we were there, they were working on everything from a complete restoration to the detailing and refreshing of customer cars. They also have a stockroom full of precious Corvette parts to keep things running smoothly.
Vintage Vettes, L.L.C. is only open during the week, so if you want to check it out on the weekend, you need to make an appointment. It is located at 319 East 10th Avenue in North Kansas City, Mo., and you can call them at (888) 431-VETT. You can also find them on the web at www.vintagevettesllc.com.
If Corvettes trip your trigger, Vintage Vettes, L.L.C. is definitely worth a visit. Just have your checkbook ready, because making the drive back home in a normal car may just be impossible after you've seen what this place has to offer. Check out the slideshow below.
