Throwback Thursday: Chevrolet’s Experimental C3 Turbo Corvette
With modern technology aiming squarely at the turbo as the way of the future, is it about time that GM and Corvette re-visit the idea of intake air compressed by exhaust gasses?
The combination of uninformed motorists and the outlandish and charismatic appearance of our favorite sports car leads to some hilariously dumb questions.
It’s very tempting to put cheap or inexpensive parts on an older Corvette, such as a C3. But buyer beware.
Back in the oil crisis days, GM/Chevrolet/Corvette engineers were taking leftover parts from all the company’s other cars and experimenting with different engine setups, like turbocharging.
