Okay. That's a young Arnold with a C3 and a confusing nose emblem, but is it/was it Arnold's car?

Actually, I think the Arnold was demonstrating what happens to front bumper alignment when you bench press a C3.

Eljay, I'm not sure where I picked that up. If you do a google search, I'm sure the artist's prints are available somewhere.

Here's another one:

The Astronauts during the early days of our space program practically all of them drove Vettes.



This is the crew of Apollo 12.



Astronauts and Corvettes. A very cool match.

I totally agree. Since I was a kid back in the sixties I have been and still am a huge fan of the early space program.
There were a lot of bad things going on in this country and overseas like civil unrest and Vietnam. But damn it! If it wasn't a great time to be an American!

Actually it appears to be his personal car. Some quick research showed him with it in several photos (sporting Austrian plates) and there is some reference to having treated himself after winning Mr. Universe!

Now where are the photos of the Apollo astronauts, Kim Bassinger, Jay Leno, etc? Jimmy Hendrix apparently owned a couple of early C3s in his time!

Edit: It looks like we have the astronauts covered above!
