The Quest is the story of a son living out his father’s dream. Chip Miller was the founder of the Corvettes at Carlisle show and a lifelong Corvette enthusiast. It was his dream to find and restore the Corvette that John Fitch drove to a class victory at LeMans in 1960 and then return the car to LeMans on the 50th anniversary of the ‘Vette’s victory. Miller was able to achieve part of that dream but a debilitating illness and an early death meant that the Vette might not return to France in time for that deadline. Miller’s son took up the task, finished the restoration and not only got the completed car back to France for the 2010 LeMans race, he reunited the car with nonagenarian Fitch.

"...I've been over to Cars In Depth on many occasions. Barring the whole 3D thing which drives me up the wall (that's a personal thing, though), I like the content, the writing, and the simple formatting. You do a great job over there, and I am impressed."
