My ideal Corvette is pretty much the one I have (chrome bumper C3). I don't drive it fast, I like the look, the feel and the sound of it. Yeah ok for pub bragging rights it'd be nice to have a big block in there, but in reality a small block is ample enough for my limited needs. Smile

Saying that, I would like to resto-mod it a bit more to be more comfortable on modern roads - power brakes, a modern V8 injection engine, better rated suspension and so forth. Oh and remove all the squeaks and rattles Laughing

I was always a massive fan of the C6 Z06 Centennial Edition:

Great setup and look on the Z06. Was one for sale a while back in the UK.....if I'd have won the lottery, it would have been snapped up. Will just have to continue to slowly update my C6 to the same style.... Wink

Contentment. Normally come across it with the owners of older Corvettes. The newer Corvette owners often talk more about their next car rather than the car they own.

Thank you Frank, I can not discern from the pics which is the 69, but looks like a Big Block in the white one, difficult to gauge as the 427 is physically smaller than the 454 which would be more obvious against a small block.

The Roll Bar Frank? I presume you are putting it back to Factory spec.

Be nice to see it once you have completed it - is it Tri-Power ?
