I know,I know, its probably not how you'd build a Corvette but I needed something different and nobody else has done it that I know of. So after gathering parts for the last few years I finally had enough to start a new project. I had come up with the pieces to assemble a 1958-60 Corvette. I just needed a style to build towards. I love the straight axle or "Gasser " style but have already done a 57 Vette, 59 Vette, 55 T-Bird , 55 Chev and 56 Chev so I was kinda through with that phase. After watching "Hot Rods to Hell" one night it occurred to me that I had the majority of the parts to build the anti-hero's Corvette from the movie. I remember seeing the show in the mid 70s and thinking "what a screwed up Corvette" but my feelings have softened towards the car now and I can appreciate the look of that era a little better . Back then I was all about "Restored", but at that time every Corvette you saw was modified in some way, Mags, Scoops, Flares, something . So having a stock Corvette back then was highly unusual. Now its kind of reversed. They're all restored and very few are modified. Having had many stock early Vettes I can say with experience that a 283 with a non synchro 3 speed and 4 inch wide tires does NOT spell excitement for me.They have their place ,just not in my garage. Anyway ,over the next few weeks I'm going to post pictures of my tribute build. The car is finished now but I took lots of shots of the construction and would like to share them with you guys. I've seen some of the stuff you guys have brought back and thought you might be interested in seeing how to get itchy instead of getting welding scars.
