OK lets try these...this is last year at Monterey for the Historics.

I have about 40 detail pictures of this Greenwood car, a truly stunning racer and the ultimate evolution of the C-3. Tell me what you think or if you want more...also more of what...first the overview...



aft end, lots of ground effects and diffusers...good for 230 mph!



business end: Fuek injected ZL-1 with incredible chassis mods.



detail front...lots of mods, but still a C-3




*** end just as awesome....



And it looks like this on track....

international blue, those are wonderful shots revealing some very interesting details. Very highly developed racer indeed, but as you pointed out its still a real C3.



edit - after thinking about it, do you have any shots of the rear suspension (that would be awesome) and of the rad duct, under-tray and diffuser area? Man, I wish I could trade my Crower calliope for that cross-ram injector setup.

Here's some pics from Sebring 1971 which I attended when I was 13 years old. Took the pics with a Kodak Instimatic 100!

Bridgehampton in the '70's







Gene had a shop in Huntington Station, (NY)










One of the "Alto" Corvettes




Bridgehampton - sorely missed.

OK as promised the rest of the Greenwood widebody, MRY Historics August 19, 2006. This is one racecar that is immaculate visually as well as functionally. Now from what I understand the car is restored with tall gears, so running in front of the 935 crowd is not really a priority. Its could however go very fast with those gears given a place with room, unlike Laguna Seca....

Once again a header picture...



basic top attach and detail of hardtop, a lower drag package than the coupe T-Top



Cockpit, and detail of surrounding structure.



Rollcage junction is different than most cars. transverse supports come together in center, and must form a steady point for rear suspension and "keel" of the car perhaps.. Hardtop rear detail, and decklid. Everything minimal clean and lightweight...







rear diffuser detail and ground effects...for above 200 mph!





Now I walked off at this point, but returned a couple hours later as the bodywork was removed. Staying out of the way, here are further detail shots.



OK, and the next post has that....

tubular A arms, geometry changes and details...



New Autogear M22 box! Much more historically accurate than the Jericho...



BTW: If anyone knows of a street widebody thats a real eyesore, please PM me...


Simple!





Now look at the way the rollcage supports the rear end here...different from the classic L-88 style cage. Very high strength, for a new order of velocity.



OK the last 3 for now...



proboscis


And 10 to 12 thousand dollars worth of carburation...before work and money is added...
