    Mid 60's Corvettes are the new era equivalent to the iconic 1940 Ford coupe. Design masterpieces.
    If anyone wants to trade one for my bitchin' little '63 Nova convert, call me ;)

    HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA. So did i !

    Ryan, i've had a picture of the blue Vette framed in my TV room for the longest time. Something about the blue exterior - white interior - thin whites, Radirs - just does it for me.
    Its one of the few cars that inspired my first 32 five window build! I dig it.

    It's good to be a dreamer,but questionable (around here) to be light in the loafers...

    Corvettes is fun,they always yield good parts.

    I happen to like when people completely rape vettes and run them as full out race cars even with straight axles. That shit does it for me.

    This thread just prove that no matter what brand you are into the older ones are always the best,and that is back when blonds were all meat and taters not plastic and silicone like the cars and blonds today.Saw that same picture at the flea-market they had it fixed up with the led lights.

    Dang, Evel,

    Way to bust out the photo collection. What's the story on these? Did Barris shoot 'em for sale, back in the day, or were they in-house reference-type photos?

    I'm asking 'cause I want ALL of 'em!

    I love mild custom Corvettes. I don't have a picture but Bob K has a super cool slightly modified early Vette.
    I own an "02" coupe, great driver and fun roadtrip car for me and the wife (she's not really into the hotrod thing) Gary
  26. I love corvette's... the pinacle of chevy horspower/handling and their main race car..I've had a couple black coupes, A 64 with a 327/muncie 4 speed and an old 74 with a KILLER 383 and a worked 400 turbo. I miss both of 'em but I like my 'vettes a little milder than most. It's tough to improve on their good looks.
    My kid has a blown ZO6 with a 6 speed that's nothing short of incredible! Best 'vette yet IMHO. Here's a few photos of each one. Excuse the tattered photos of the 64 but I carried it in my wallet until it almost fell apart...my only photo of it in black paint. The black&white photo was when it was still red..uggh.

    Man, have to agree on that. I could convince myself to be a 'vette guy with something like that.

    The blue one posted is a photo that was in one of the threads from a while back. I don't recall which, but I grabbed it and threw it into my desktop pictures folder in the random rotation. It is nice car, for a 'vette anyway. Maybe you saw it there too and sub-consiously filed it away until last night. But, yes, by doing that and then spending the time to actually find it suggests that you have a rather serious sickness. Not necessarily a bad one, but serious none the less.

    I did exactly that in the summer of 1985. Mr Hamill was in my hometown doing an off-broadway play at the Goodspeed Opera House.

    I stopped at a convenience store, DeLorenzo's, on my way to work to grab a soda and chat with my buddy Adrian who worked there as a cashier. In walked Mr Hamill and Adrian introduced him.

    "No way! Mark Hamill! From Corvette Summer!!?!"

    He was flabbergasted.

    We chatted a bit about the 'vette being left hand drive and stuff.

    He asked my if I wanted his autograph and I said "Nahh, I gotta run, I am late for work!"

    Wow, Ryan, the Corvettein your dream is really cool and Jo Anne is cute, even if she is annoying, controlling and has apparently never seen domestic ducks before.

    However, you seem to have morphed into a weird preppy cross between Jerry Blavat and Paul Anka!

    Mild custom Corvettes do indeed rock! The X-Sonic and the Corvette Summer car are the stuff of nightmares though, not dreams.
