    It is an Impala instead of a lowly bel air... and they go well with the shaved door handles, 58 buick grill, lowering blocks and pearl white tuck n roll....

    McJim it would have been great if Narzinski could have won the Nationals in A/MSP as he had the car to do it. Not sure what happened. He ran at Indy in 62 when the car was virtually new (although he had salvaged it from a wreck I believe). Narzinski had been running mid 11s with the car prior to Indy but Parriott took home the A/MSP honors with his Cadillac powered Kurtis built special. Wonder what happened to the car.

    I do too...mid 11s with a 6-71 blown 401 in a 2600 pound car, must have not got much traction in those days.

    I am amazed at how well some of these Vettes (and others) were able to post pretty impressive numbers with the narrow and hard (for the most part) tires. Even more impressive than Narzinski IMO was Earl Wade winning class and Street eliminator with Mike Lenke's A/SP stock 62 Vette with mid 12s at the 62 Winternationals.

    61 and 62 Corvettes are my favorites by a long shot. Did not ever think I'd see one with whitewall's that would trip my trigger, but this car, WOW! Oh yeah the floor mats aint bad either! It's the packaging, the rake, pipes, triple taillights, color scheme, grill, and of course the tire and wheel combo. Mark you certainly have the "eye" brother. Have a nice weekend all.

    wow! thanks man... ya know I probably de valued the car a ton with what I have done to it, but I never have been all that worried about how much something is worth. Having fun with cars is way more important to me. and this is a fun car!!!

    I like your way of thinking. I've never put a car together worried about it's resell value. They've always been built to my liking.

    Morning,
    You're welcome. Value schmalue. Don't wander the car shows like I used to but if I did a car like yours would stop me in my tracks, a super shiny restored C1, not so much.

    That one has come a long way since you bought it. Are you able to drive it yet?

    Chuck it is quite the saga and apparently Kevin Mackay is now in charge of the restoration. I am sure he will do an excellent job of bringing the car back to what it once was, in a sense. The frame may be original but not sure how much else. Will be a good deal to see it back in the Lemans livery. I have had people correct me on it being a restoration and more like a recreation but then again I feel that is better than the mess that it is now. Important to see how it once looked when it carried the colors at Lemans. It should be interesting to see how it comes together and the stories that may accompany it's journey back to race trim.

    As to Doug's question on the "Old Reliable" Corvette, somewhere in my notes I have some info on that car-digging it up right now may be a task. Relying on my sometimes faulty memory but I seemed to remember it raced once or twice and they removed the lettering and put it back at the family (Ammon R. Smith) Chevrolet dealership. Probably sold it as a used car. May very well exist without the present owner knowing about it's history. Not much history in the scheme of things anyways I suppose. Still a cool car and if I owned it the lettering would go back on.
