Jimmie Johnson’s resto-mod Stingray may be the coolest Corvette at SEMA
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.
There’s likely to be debate over this one for years, and by “for years” I mean as many years as it will take for hell to freeze over.
