C3 Corvette Barn Find Represents Awesome Americana at Its Best

One aspect that I find most entertaining about being a Corvette Forum member is seeing all the noobs come in, and how quickly our members are able to spot which ones are for real, and which ones are the weak and timid pre-teens borrowing their parent’s Hewlett Packard. The latter provides some entertainment, where as the former is what keeps growing Corvette Forum into what it is today.

In this example of a new guy looking for advice, we are greeted not only with a barn find, but one with significant drag racing history (or so it seems), and also an accompanying Corvette that was used as — get this — a tow vehicle. Awesome Americana doesn’t really come more pure than this.

The story started off a little shaky, but loose ends are being tied together with surprising ease, with a story that’ll tug at your heart strings. I don’t want to spoil it for you here, but the story has some pretty significant history and is evolving with every post. Find out how this car, sheltered for over 40 years, turns out. This is just the kind of stuff that I’m tuned into Corvette Forum for in the first place, how about you?
