So far mine has had a swap of carb and intake, and the whole exhaust system. It runs much happier now. Other than correcting paint, broken bits of trim and general maintenance etc, my only plans are to put alloys on it and fit power brakes to it. Well, maybe remote central locking as well, for convenience and 3 point seat belts for better safety (only have lap belts currently).


Exactly, stock appearance but improvements to driving experience, uprated engine, steering, suspension etc. Itís far too easy to spoil a c3 with bolt on body parts. Unless of course itís done properly, wider arches look nice, but lots of work and money to get it right. My personal favourite modded c3 is this one.

It is simple:

You want to look at it and keep it pristine - Matching Numbers all round

You want to enjoy driving it and looking at it- Improve it, RestoMod.

There's two nice C1's in the up and coming Vette News. One's modified and the other is stock. Both are NAT winner's. How can you choose between them? Rob Vette News Editor
