Default Went to the Goodguys Show Today (pics)

Quite a few Corvettes among the 2,000 or so cars. Saw most, if not all. Here are the C1 & C2. Maybe one of them is yours.


Big crowd. Beatuful day. High in the low 70s.

Some of the auto crossers.

Most were modified in some fashion.




Cool color. Original C1 color?












Overbite?

Default New Goodguys 2

A couple more plus some non Corvettes that caught my eye.


Looks like it could be Marina Blue. Looks good againstbthe red.

These are all the rage these days.

Love the old mills - something other than a SBC in a Street rod.

I’m a big fat gendered Ford fan - especially I bright yellow.

Don’t see many of these anymore.

Tired of pictures yet? OK, I’m done.


Can you say “old school”?

Who doesn’t like flames on a ‘40 Ford?

Ohhh! What a combination!

Check it the sneaky A/C compressor. Can you spot it?

Still my favorite of the Tri-5s.

Great stance and nice way to fill the wheel well.



I think somebody on this forum said they liked old Rivieras?

Is that the biggest motor you could fit in there? Yup!

Tri-5s anyone?

Thanks for all the pictures. Nice weather. Great Corvette turn out. I'm surprised there were that many Corvettes.

Thanks for sharing. My in-laws live in Mesa and we've gone to that event a few times. The F-I-L took his home-built 1972 Grand Prix convertible there this weekend and told me he got the Homebuilt Heaven award. No, they didn't make a convertible that year so he meticulously grafted one on....a beautiful triple black car with redlines. Proof that GM should have made a convertible that year!

Wish I was there as well. Woke up to 2* this morning in southern Minnesota.

Mike

I saw that car and everybody thought is was a one of very few unheard of Grand Prix convertibles. He did such a great job, I believe he said he used some trim and stuff from a cutlass convertible. it is nice car and really well done. Glad he won!

Default Went Friday to Goodguys

Hey Jim, I went to the Goodguys on Friday with some neighbors. Not nearly the number of early Vettes there that day but nice turnout anyway. That Goodwood Green L79 67 Coupe with the Oregon plates is owned by a local guy in Chino Valley.
There was a very sharp 67 Maroon 400 Horse Air Coupe on hand Friday.

JLS,
You got all the ones (I think), here's one I saw in the big tent. The fellow said there's and automotive Museum on Bell Road (I think) where this car sits...It looks like the one that sold at Barrett Jackson last year....but he said they made this one at the Museum....interesting...if one was to put this thing together they would have a pristine, rust free C2 Convertable....
