Thanks Jim D. With my medical ills behind me, I am getting back to my "old ways". I sure do miss those 10,000 rpm shifts in that Blue car.
A rare picture of a Vette shod with snow tires?
In #7114 it seems to have snow tires.
Chuck I'm having a mental fart because I keep forgetting to hit the "post reply" button. I typed this about 3:30.
It may be a rare picture today, but in the 60s, we all put snow tires on our cars for the winter, as most of our cars were our daily drivers. I always ordered them with steel studs, which were legal back then. I have a really good race in the snow from then story, but that is for another day.
Jim, I remember running old snow tires I had kept on my 73 Corvette back in the 70s which I drove in the winter. Car was terrible in the snow but the tires were old so I removed them. I put some old weights in a brief case which I kept in the back compartment behind the seats-car looped a 360 a couple of times but part of the deal when you drove them in the snow. I also remember installing the studs when I worked at Arborland Standard in the early 70s.
How is the Vette Racing book coming??
Vetrod good to see you back.
Enloe, the manuscript portion is finished and is being reviewed by a publisher. Working on permission for photos. The whole process is a bit slow but I am glad I finished the written potion, although there are a few small changes and additions I have to make. Will have to get permission from Jim to include his 62 in the epilogue and a few others that still race their solid axles.
