I found this website of yours about a year ago. I have never had the pleasure of owning a corvette but i must say that both of your proclassics are the absoloute most beautiful cars I have ever seen. If I were ever to get a vette i think i would have to buy it from you.

Well, you are the first visitor we have had from Africa! Welcome and we hope you enjoyed the site. Thanks for leaving the message
Do you ever drive those things? I guess it doesn't matter anyways because they're not classics anymore anyways (not stock)... Nice garage, though.
USA - Wednesday, January 14, 2004 at 02:25:56 (CST)
Tom, both cars are driven at least twice a week to our local cruise nights during the summer months. We have also had all original Vettes but found that we didn't drive them as much as we do these cars. That was one of the main reasons for building them the way we wanted and we have had a great deal of fun building as well as driving them. Fortunately, there are many ways to enjoy the hobby. Thanks for the compliment on the garage.
Merry Christmas and happy New Year Rich and Barbara. My wife and I had the pleasure to meet and talk with you at the Boston W/W and at Carlisle. Being the proud owner of a restored 62 vette for over 20yrs, your car is flawless and an inspiration to imagination (Barb pointed out the horn ring center caps on the wheels). I had the pleasure of meeting friends of yours at the Elks Club Car Show in Lawrence, Ma., they are the owners of a hot rod. I look forward to seeing you and Barb during 2004 at the shows. May I suggest "Reno Hot August Nights" 17th Annual Week Long Shows, Cruises, and Car Flea Mkt and Car Auction. It occurs the 1st and 2nd wk of August 2004. Cars come from all over the West, Mexico, and Canada. Very Best Shaun and Jeanine Scanlon

Awesome collection of Vettes. I especially like the '62. My brothers and I have been working on my fathers '61. It has an incredible stance due in part to tubbing and an independant front end. The rear tires are 18x10 and the fronts are 17's. Future upgrades include a new trans, probably a six speed and a new paint job to make this baby shout. Mahalo from Hawaii.

Rich, All these years I have been doing your business cards and I have never seen your cars or your website. I thought I would take a peek! Absolutely gorgeous, what a beautiful car (red with the black stripe) I have to show Michael this, he loves corvettes, he had a 1980 sometime back and when we got married he had a 1990, that we sold so we could buy our house. He always says "one day i will have one again". He loves them, all years early and new. I m going to go look at a few more pages, see you. Alicia
Colchester, USA - Monday, October 20, 2003 at 12:56:31 (CST)
Fantastic job on the website. One of these days I am going to have to see these cars in person. Judging by the pictures these are two of the finest Corvettes I have every seen.
Puyallup, USA - Monday, October 20, 2003 at 10:57:42 (CST)
Rich....Saw the "62" at Detroit Autorama....I was so thrilled and excited to see a car like that ,that It gave me goose bumps...I looked at that car for a half an hour and still havn't stoped talking about it...Seeing the "62" has inspired me to do a similar rebuild to my "73" "You Are Definately the MAN!!

Jim Terry visited from Largo Florida Good 'Ol USA
Wow! I'm sure everyone says the same thing after viewing your Corvette page, but I have NEVER seen any garage as clean and inviting as yours! I'm totally impressed. I think I've got some work to do on mine! I ordered my very first Corvette on June 6th of this year-a Magnetic Red Coupe with the works. I rode in a new C5 friend's Mag Red Convert. the other day, my very first time in a C5, and the first ride in any Corvette. I'm looking at a build date in the week of Sept. 18th and taking delivery of my new dream in early October. I'll put a web page together about the C5 as soon as I get 'er! Hope you and your family are doing fine, best wishes to you all. Jim & Linda Terry

Just visited your web page. Totally awesome!!! My boyfriend hasn't stopped drooling on my computer since he saw the pics of the garage loading and all I could hear him saying under his breath "that's what I've always wanted". He wants to know if you have blueprints?? Also noticed the pic of the Cobra..is that your next restoration? I bought my C5 in July off the showroom floor with only 2 miles on it...now only has 4K. You will absolutely love yours when you get it. What's up with that anyway? I'm first on the list at my dealer for the 50th in 2003 since I was the first to buy a 2000. I love that car and you will too. Enjoy and thanks for sharing your dream with the Forum.

Your Plan For the Ultimate Vette
Jim & Janet Dawes visited from Stewartsville NJ USA
In 1963 I was a freshman in High School and as none of my friends were old enough to drive, let alone able to afford the outrageously expensive new Corvette, I had decided that the ultimate DREAM MACHINE for me would be a Roman Red 1962 Corvette with Black interior. That still is not a bad Dream Machine. In fact I can only hope that when you guys roll into Carlisle next year with the most beautiful CORVETTE in the world that you will still say HI!! Just kidding, but I really want to say GO FOR IT!! I'll be proud to say that Rich and Barbara Lagasse are aquaintance's and friends of ours. Keep in touch and we appreciate your friendship!! We almost went to the Mystic Show in hopes of seeing you but deided to stay closer to home. Regards, Jim & Janet Dawes

The '67 Vette w/the 502
John visited from Suffield CT USA
OH WOW! You've easily got the coolest car around here dude, and I've seen plenty of cool cars. This car is unbelievable, You gotta post some hp/torque figures. What would be great would be if you raced it, and got some quarter mile times. It'd really be something if you raced the '67 and the C5, though I'd never let anyone else drive either, so that would be hard.

I originally had the idea of putting the TT II's on my '67 just before i saw an ad in a magazine featuring your vette; and that just clinched the decision. As i'm sure you've heard a thousand times, she is a real beauty, and an inspiration to all of us who are just starting. I found this address from your posting at corvetteforum, and really appreciate the help u give there. Mike aka Ghanesha67
Peter Jackel visited from Mission Viejo California USA
Absolutely amazing restoration!! I owned a Roman Red '62 for 15 years until 1999. It never got even close to looking like what yours will look like, but I enjoyed it for what it was. The '67 is incredible and I'm sure the '62 will be as well. I'm a member of the Corvette Forum (MidLifeCrisis) and have to agree with a comment made by a member in a post today: You are "on a different level than the rest of us". I feel about this the way I feel when I see an incredibly detailed painting....I can only dream of having the ability to do something like that.

Dennis and Leah 2E visited from Naugatuck CT USA
This is the second time I am writing this note - 2E had written one as well but then he wanted to look around again and I told him we would get booted out but guess what happened - so here I am again -Dennis is now cooking so I'll write for him too. He owned a 60 MG which he no longer owns but in his dreams - he just kept saying - Wow - Wow!! I never realized he knew so much about vettes but he was very impressed to say the least. I had a 63 split window vette. I went to shows and they were a blast but boy! - you guys are really something - your cars are like a dream - the garqage is unbelieveable. I saw the lift that Barb got for as a gift but I couldn't see the miniature garage anywhere in the pictures - must have been in a different place from where the pictures were taken - that miniature was really something. Most of all - every one that meets you two seems to feel how special you are - every thing is "OURS" - that's great. I love the picture of the two of you with Rich saying - "I'm the one on the left." But I especially like the picture with the both of you in the C5 with the umbrella. That's my favorite. Well gotta go - I'm writing this on 2E's lap top and the keys are all different so excuse any finger bobbles etc. Congratulations - really a great accomplishment for the two of you and good luck with future endeavors!

Beautiful car and wheels
Mike Losodo visited from CA USA
I signed your guestbook one time before after seeing how aesthetically beautiful it was, and you responded to me, whihc i thought was amazing. Now i realize how technically challenging parts must have been just from my small endeavour with torq-thrust II's. I have purchased a pair of these wheels and would much appreciate if you could help me find a way to make them fit; meaning how you did it. So if you could send me the size and backspacing of the wheels as well as the size and brands of the tires i would be very grateful. Thank you soo much, and that is one heck of a great ride!

Outstanding cars and a well done web site. I'm on my second Vette; the first was a '79 that I sold to get my '85. When we move back to Tampa next year, I'm buying a C-5 and will rebuild the '85 for my now 13-year old son. Again, great cars and a great site.

Great cars, great garage, great website! We are on our second Vette - a Daytona yellow '69. Wish I had your garage for it! Although I doubt it will ever be up to the standards of your cars, it sure is a lot of fun & draws plenty of attention - especially from those who catch the "427" on the hood & the Hurst shifter on the floor... Which 502 did you buy, & do you recommend it? Mine is currently running a built 400 small-block w/ about 400hp...

Had a '96 Collecter Edition with the Torch Red interior. Brigt Red contrasting silver an awesome color combo. After hearing they brought back the Torch Red interior for 2000 I searched endlessly for a low mile silver/red six-speed. After three months I had to settle for Sebring Silver on black. I'm going swap the black seat covers for torch red covers, install Corsa Indy exhaust with GTR tips and a brushed aluminum interior kit.

Let me stand in line to thank you for building the kind of car I am looking for @ Geneva Auto show every year again. Engineers have been talking about retro looks for years but the truth is that mankind will never be able to return to something considered to be old and accept it as brand new as well. We all need the past as a scale for our progress but only a few of us are able to pick the best parts from every epoch and reassemble something beyond vintage car requirements like matching # and marketing dept. requirements like usability and prod. cost effectivity etc. Not to mention our excentric designers and safety engineers that couldn't live with an unaltered body shape from the last century launching these days again. A bummer than it really is as simple as getting dressed for a party taking dad's good pants that are en vogue again, that brand new shirt from D&G that you bought last week and those 5 years old designer shoes you convinced your mom back then that will last for ever and are worth spending her money on, it's all about picking your best pieces from everything...a show especially woman are staring in. Might be a reason why your projects turned out so good as you had both a strong physical and psychological support from your wive Barbara at all times. The only way is probably yours, but it takes a lot of discipline, persistence and organizing skills, attributes I'm working on myself and really admire as much as your garage and it's valuable content. Unfortunately I live in a country that does not allow people to build there own dreams on wheels, at least not when it comes to chassis, suspension and engine redesign/transplant. But as proud owner of a second, a U.S. citizenship I might take chances somewhat further down the road. Mother earth has quite a few nice places to settle and....live dreams. I wish you and your family all the best for 2002. Keep achieving goals, although you're ahead of the rest of us already...;-)

Your cars and your garage are simply outstanding! I've been casually looking for a C3 to restore, but you're tempting me to look at a C2. The '62/Z06 is impressive, but I really like the '67; the engine works really well with the entire car (use of the 502/carb).

Its the new wallpaper on my PC. Tell me, in the background of that picture, is that a hot-rodded Divco Milk Truck?? I've gotta get to Massachusettes! Great cars, great site.

Absolutely, positively, THE most awe-inspiring 62 I've ever seen! Just taking a look a the 67 would have been enough, but then you had to go ahead and build my dream car. It's really funny that I found your car on corvettemagazine.com at this time because I was really thinking about how great it would be to drop in an LS6 into a first gen vette (or any other car for that matter). You've got some sweet, sweet cars, and a garage that could make a guy wet his pants! Take care. -David

i have been intending to write you since last year, but i follow all of worst maxims of mark twain and have put it off for too long. i could not possibly add anything sustantial to the numerous messages already on your site. i had only had my 2001 z06 a few weeks when i brought my uncle with me to carlisle. there were so many beautiful vettes there, but when i saw your '62 i was completely awestruck. no superlative, no adjative, or combination thereof could ever do justice to what you created. i am beyond green with envy. it is the most beautiful car i have ever seen...period. i took quite a few shots with my camera and never hesitate to show and tell them. i found you and your wife to be down to earth friendly and a pleasure to talk to. i hope you will be there this year as well. i don't know whether to thank you or hate you for setting the height of the bar so high, rich. in any event, take care and hope to see you soon
