1coolC2,
That is simply the most amazing C2 I have ever seen. How do you stop smiling when you drive it?

1coolC2, Yes, it all makes sense now. I gathered as much after sky65's post. Great car, great job.

I still wanna know the back spacing on ADW1965's 8" wheels if possible......

I'm embarrased to say that I don't know the backspacing off the top of my head. Let me check with my "wheel guy" tomorrow and I will let you know. Sorry about the delay.

Thanks guys,
I'll have to let you know about the driving it part. I still have some stuff on the punch list before I fire it up and take it for a blast. Sure cant wait to feel the wrath of that modified LS7

Wait a minute!!! You haven't driven this car yet??? Let us know how it feels so we can live vicariously.

I really liked the style of the wheel and it's extremely lightweight....plus it was one of the only rims that would clear the massive 14" rotors and 6 piston calipers on all four corners. Here are some additional pics.

My son lives in Leesburg I will have to visit with my 66 sometime this summer. I don't see any exhaust yet. Will this be a pipe car? Your rear valence doesn't show enough in your photos.

Dennis,
C'mon by when your in town!! Good eyes, we are getting ready to custom build the 3" stainless steel undercar exhaust in a few weeks. I love sidepipe cars but wanted to make as much power as possible and keep the noise out back. Since the rear exhaust bezels will be too small we will have to make those as well. Don't worry, the video and sound will be posted for all to hear

Jeff,
It looks like a straight shot down I95 about 3.5 hours from Leesburg. Maybe we could find some local Corvette or car show show in your area. Any shows you know about? I will be in touch come spring.

Who cares? It’s still a good / useful post.

Funny how some folks love to tell people to “search the forums” and then they do (and reply), they get responses like that.

What size tires do you have?

Will 17" rears clear the rear leaf or do you have to go 18"?
