That is the car that started it all for me! I was looking for a 68/69 camaro when I came across that car on the internet and became obsessed with Corvettes.
That is a great photo, Rob. (iPhone?)

a couple quick pics....these are from an upcoming article in Vette Magazine where they will be featuring Torq Speed Lab and some of the fixes/challenges/reverse engineering they have had to work through over the last year from the the LS swap so I can drive this beast like it should be driven on a daily basis and at the track with the only worry is to figure out how many more weeks tires & brakes will last

Don't drive it much these days, after I finished fixing (maybe modified, it is a '74) everything I kind of lost interest.

LOVE that seamless look. That cleans up the lines on our rubber bumper cars so much it's amazing.

Looks fantastic. Thanks for sharing these. I have saved them as a reference for the future work on our '77.

The tires were mounted that way when I bought it. I like it, but ready for a slight change. I'm going to turn them around soon. Anyhow, great looking car. I like it!!!
