One of my favorites from Henri Greder's site. The car is the yellow 69, and is racing in a hillclimb I believe. Note the odd flare profile, possibly GM by the curves, but set further down the fender than normal today. The current ZL-1 flaers are much more regular and pleasing, but this is real vintage stuff! The three digit race number, no mirrors ( no traffic) and the perfect stance of the car....You can just hear that rat motor roar out those open pipes... Just perfect.

The racecars that are modern I took myself. The Greder pics or the Mid America car above just came off the web. I also try to go to the races as often as I can....

Try this one....Spa Franchorchamps 1972 I know nothing about the car, So anyone with info please....Note the same flares as the Greder car, with a larger hood bulge. Car is a 69 T-TOP car, unusual in racing...

blue, I don't know anything more than you probably do, that it was Euroil Racing's entry and that it had a classified retirement (engine). And, yes it was a 427. Sadly, one of its drivers, the popular Belgian Chris Tuerlinckx (sp?) was apparently fatally injured in a road crash on the way home from the Spa '73 round, in which he DNF'd in his own Corvette.

The shots of car 67 and 77 are awesome. Kustom headers and all the cool L-88 look bits on stock bodied early production 1968 Corvettes. Wonder what the vin #'s were...?

Awesome....Check out the trick speed mod of removing the inner taillights on both cars to let air out of the body...

What happened to them? Are these cars running around now with us?

You don't know how much you guys are making me want to get into vintage racing with a Vette. I don't see myself being satisfied with TT's, HPDE's or auto-X, so what's it take (C3 wise) to run SVRA or anywhere suitable that really lets you race wheel to wheel with an old shark? Hmmm...

Anyway, don't stop posting pics on my account.

Inter.Blue,and others.....the pics are GREAT!I love the old racing vettes.I have a 69 coupe out back that has those flares like that.It was a 350/350,M21,3.70s car,red **** carpet,and all.Went end over end in the early 80s,but didn't trash the top..just the front,and damaged the back,and busted the LH flare where the wheel w/spacer came off,and started the vett flying..........
Any more good shots of the frame set ups,and the susp.?I'm working on a 68 frame right now to reinforce it,and lower the CG up,etc.,and all pics would be welcomed!
