My new C3 pace car


Hi all.
This is my new 1978 L82 pace car, number 1117. 47000 actual miles Wink
Its getting delivered next week and i cant wait.
I went to view it on sunday and its everything i could have wished for.
Big thanks to Gavin Roe for being 100 percent honest and true to his word about this car.
I have been waiting so long for it to get here from the states and Gavin to add his finishing touches to it.
He advised me to keep the door decals on but i havent made my mind up yet.

Just curious as to how many there may be in the UK?

Re: My new C3 pace car


A couple of very nice looking Pace Car replica's there!

Welcome to the "world of '78's" Nosher. I see you car has an NCRS sticker in the windscreen, probably why the door decals are not applied - they came from the factory in the cubby hole in the back, for dealer application. My advice, leave them off, that retains the originality, which is important on such a car.

There's an interesting article on the '78 Pace Cars in the October edition of Corvette Magazine, co written by the 1978 guru, Tom Russo..

Yes, as said, National Corvette Restorers Society. An organisation that tends to come in for some "flak" from people, mainly those who don't know anything about it Smile Basically the largest Corvette club in the world, which has spent years compiling manuals for each year Corvette detailing exactly how they appeared when they left the factory and, helping members restore their cars to a "from the factory appearance", or to keep an original "survivor" car original. A fabulous source of information about the cars and if you get into the judging side, a lot of fun. And teh cars don't need to be "Trailer Queens either! Very Happy

In your case it might be worth getting hold of a copy of the '78 Judging Manual as it'll tell you masses about the car, how it works and how it was built. You don't need to be a member to get the manuals, by the way. Thumbs up
