Welcome to the forum.

You need to do a little more looking here before making a statement like that. There are many veteran owner/posters here with a LOT of knowledge That post a lot and regularly that will be a lot of help to you and others.

I had high hopes for the show then they called in "The Count" for his expert commentary on Corvettes.

If that's their idea of what an 83 corvette would of look like then it's a good thing chevy did not come out with one. That split window looks ridiculous. On a 63 it looks great, but not here.

It was interesting to learn about the Dream Car Restoration shop. The small mods looked ok, but the back window was ! Dennis

I lived in St Louis for almost 10 years - had a 66 big block coupe and walked out of restaurant one evening and two gentleman were looking over my car. Turns out they both were on the assembly line when my car went across. Pretty interesting discussion. They both said “Of course we had no idea back then these things would be collector cars”

anyone that wears a doo-rag doesn't inspire me to buy a Corvette and I would question his "expert" knowledge.

So I watched the Lost Corvette
- one I have never heard of the shop or the owner
- can do without the swearing and cursing and made up drama
- the stupid 10 week timeline is soooo unbelieveable
- thank god GM didnt build their idea - terrible
- typical made for TV drama.....
- and I dont get it - because they really did make some 83s - just not in production and one is sitting in the museum - dont understand
- and The Count is an expert on Corvettes ?????????? - Hmmmm prob not my first choice.
- after 50 minutes - I wanted my 50 minutes back

csherman...I was disappointed myself...I was hoping they were going to focus on the pre-production 83's.

Me too, that would have been pretty interesting-----especially the story behind how the one was tucked back and surfaced later.
