The Special Collection 2018 has 46 of the 216 L88s produced...more than have ever been together at one time.

When I hear L88 I think C3 but forget that there are C2 L88s, very nice.

Default L88's!!

Had a great time at Bloomington Gold 2018 today. C3's are finally coming into their own with the 1968's hitting their golden anniversary.

Also amazing for having 12 of the 20 1967 L88 cars produced. Does anyone know how many of the missing 8 are accounted for?

Looked like a great showing. How many of us would enjoy having that cut a wy car in our garage next to our working project. I know I would for sure. Very cool

one other neat thing there on those '69 L-88s and I wish I could have gotten around quicker to look at the '68s & '69s was that there were at least two of the 17(I think is the number)automatic '69 L-88s on hand. Wild seeing an automatic behind an L-88. Might have missed another, having been short on time.
