WATCH LIVE: Jasper company building a Corvette in 48 hours

JASPER, IN (WFIE) - The challenge?  Take a project car and make it racetrack-ready in 48 hours.

The people at Ridetech in Jasper are doing that right now.

You can watch live as they transform a stock Corvette, bought off eBay.

Ridetech had a similar project four years ago and have been planning this one since last October.

All the parts have been donated by companies working on the build, but Ridetech's Bret Voelkel says the Corvette is probably worth a quarter of a million dollars.

Voelkel says with so much invested in a project like this, everyone wants it to be a top of the line car.

Crews will fire up the Corvette Thursday night at midnight.

The folks at Ridetech say the day after the car is complete, it will be driven to the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, KY, to race on their new road course on Saturday.
