As a team, we at Parise Racing felt the need to show our veterans how much we appreciate their service and sacrifice. We understand that ‘freedom is not free’, and we wanted to find a way to say ‘thank you’.First, we created the paint scheme for Andrew’s 1953 Montana Bros. built Corvette Pro Mod. It is a beautiful car modeled after a p-40 fighter jet, with POW/MIA flags and a fallen soldier on the back deck. We met many veterans that viewed the car, and the feedback was very positive. They thanked us, go figure!When it came to creating a scheme for Dina’s 1963 Tim McAmis built Corvette Pro Mod, we really wanted to make a statement. We want the fans to look at the car and make them think. Our hope is that next time they meet a veteran, or someone currently in any branch of the military they will shake their hand and say ‘thank you’. We were able to accomplish this with the experts at Performance Auto Crafters. We gave them the ideas and a concept. Just as with the Andrew’s car they nailed it. The most moving tribute on the car is our piece of the Vietnam Wall. We have two names in particular that are special to us on the car; John C. Oldfied and James Cain. James Cain is our friends Dad who was a veteran of three wars. He was wounded in Vietnam, after coming under enemy fire. He subsequently died of his injuries after returning stateside. We placed his name on our car due to the fact that he has been denied having his name placed on the ‘Wall’ in Washington. Maybe this will bring him one step closer to where he should really be, who knows.Both paint schemes also help in representing our support for the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund. The fund benefits service men and women returning from Iraq and Afghanistan with severe injuries and/or severe brain trauma. 100% of funds raised go directly to the fund.
