    I was at home eating lunch today and ran across a quick commerical for a corvette someone found in a barn. They showed some pictures of it and called it the first "airbox" corvette. Had some vintage racing footage, looks really cool , any more info on it? I tried looking on the Discovery website for program times but didnt see it listed.

    I did find this thread but its a different car I believe.

    I think it is a show on HD theatre channel 281 on Direct TV? The ad for the show has been on for some time, so they evidently recycle it every few weeks.

    The owner of the Vette hasn't logged in since September 2009??

    Maybe not , and the only reason I say that is, the one on TV was black with the white on the sides, more like a normal corvette paint scheme. Im not 100% sure but it looks different. Again, im just guessing.

    I caught the show tonight, Discovery has a new channel called Velocity, mainly gearhead channel, 670 on Comcast in Houston. Really great story on the car, a google search gets a fair amount of info. The website for the car is here: http://www.1957corvetteairbox.com/1957_Corvette_Airbox/HOME.html
    Not much info though.
