OPTIMA Presents (Let’s Find This) Corvette of the Week
My heart goes out to this guy. Forum member “Fathergill” is looking for this orange 1977 C3 Corvette. This was once his mother’s car. She just passed away, and now Fathergill is trying to locate it.
One of the latest Corvettes to be restored by Johnson, this Stingray features both exterior and interior updates, and an all-new Gen V LT1 crate engine, which the folks at Chevy are making available for $11,000 for the wet sump version and $11,250 for the dry sump.
Thirty-six Corvettes have been left sitting in garages collecting dust, which has been pissing off Corvette fans since 1989. Now it looks like we can all rest a little better knowing that these ‘Vettes are in a better position to find a good home.
I’ve come under fire for some of my opinions on custom Corvettes, but I won’t back down on my views with this one. This lime-green atrocity with its makeshift truck bed should be covered up forever. If someone wants to be buried in a Corvette, let it be this one.
Yesterday we asked you what you think is the best-looking Corvette generation. I voted for the C3, which came in second place. I think later-model C3s hurt that generation in the rankings.
