Corvette Owners

I have my fathers and when he died I decided to do what he planned to do when he retired. Rebuild the 1974 corvette with a frame off restomod. It was in the August Popular Hot Rodding Magazine. The chassis is done just starting on the body. Completely stripped it down and repainted everything and rebuilt everything. The motor is a stroked 350 to 383 dyno is at 524hp 497 torgue and then a 125hp shot of nitrous on top of that. I love Corvettes.

I've had 2 - a 67 coupe 350 horse 4 spd and a 68 convertable. Still kicking myself for selling the 67.

My first was a '68 390-427 Coupe Bronze/Tobacco. My second a '69 vert 350-350 Fathom Green/Beige. My third '86 Coupe Silver& Grey/Charcoal Z51.
My last '99 FRC (Fixed Roof Coupe) Pewter/Black. I sold this one 2 years ago and I'm getting the itch. My DW said the Vette or the Bike, kept the bike (Anniversary Road King POSE).

Bought a 2001 Convert. in 2001 as mid age crisis gift. Is still my favorite ride.
Great car. Had thought about trailer to take along but a bit of a hassle.

We've got 3. My wife has a 69 T-Top Coupe, I've got a 66 Big Block Coupe, and we've got an 06 Z06 Coupe that we race. Picked up the 06 at the factory and had a great time. Did a 7250 mile trip as a break-in.

Some really nice rides shown here, have always loved these cars. My wife thought I was insane when I bought our black 1980.

Have an '05 C06 Daytona Sunset Orange Coupe. Drive it every day to work when the weather permits. Will continue to do so until I can't shift anymore.

I have a 64 roadster, I'd post a pic but we're travelling and I have none on this computer. It'll be spring when we get home and time to cruise.

Here are a couple of pictures of my first new car and my last new car. The first has the 427 cubic inch, 435 hp L71 engine. I ordered the car in November of 1966 and finally got it in March of 1967. The C5 is the Anniversary Edition that I bought in 2007 from a dealer that had kept it in has showroom since 2003. It had 172 miles on it and I was the first registered owner.

Lot's of memories from the '67----it's a wonder I didn't kill myself. I ordered it with a 3.36:1 rear axle as I planned on some long distance driving. The shift points (if you're in a hurry) are 60, 90 and 120. It's still accelerating at redline in 4th which is 150 mph. I did that only once as the aerodynamics of it are poor at speed------it gets very light due to lots of lift from the air velocity!!

The C5 is a much, much, better car (and faster), but the C2 is a blast to drive.
