    does anyone know what happened to this Vette? some time in the early 80's a Vette very much like this was at an apartment complex in Fremont. it was orange and had a straight axle. I've looked at lots of show vettes from the old days in these photos... this one almost has to be it.

    first Oakland Roadster Show I went to was around 1970 when I was 10. all I remember was a custom wheelbarrow and my Dad pointing to a 51 Mercury and telling my brother and I he had one at one time.

    didn't go again until 1976 when I got a drivers license. went every year after that until they moved.

  4. 49ratfink, I remember the wheelbarrow. My Dad's 40 Chevy was in the year you went, as well as my custom bicycle. We probably walked right by each other, I was 12 in 1970.
