Sorry Barry it would have to be one hell of an offer to prize this out of our family.
Niki still hasn't forgiven me for selling the 67 Camaro.

See you soon.

Mine, when it's finished...

Could be a long wait tho - took the gearbox out on New Year's Eve last year, and haven't touched it since...

Hurumph... Work and houses - they really get in the way of the fun stuff, don't they?

Re: My Ideal Vette


Know what you mean FJ........had the '68 up on ramps at the front - removed oil pan and oil pump ready to replace following recent failure. I had plenty of time to do it before the end of the year.............then fell off ladder weekend before last breaking my upper arm - learning today my arm will be in a sling and brace for a further 10 weeks minimum while it heals...........worst of all no driving for same period Banghead

Ouch!

Sorry to hear that Ross. I thought 6 weeks with a plaster on my wrist was bad enough a few years ago - just in time for Le Mans too! So I know a little how you feel.

I guess you can console yourself in the knowledge that its not the greatest time of year for being out in the Vette....??

Re: My Ideal Vette


My Ideal Vette, interesting one for me, because at one time I would say I have it, never been sure about the back, but always loved the front of mine, but Vettes that did not appeal to me before, now do appeal.

In the 80s I liked the big back window and the shovel front and not the chrome bumper C3s and not the C2s.

But now my taste / choice has changed a C3 coupe would be a chrome bumper and a C2 would be a coupe, I like the idea of a 63 split window, but would probably go for a 66 /67 and the C3 would be a 69 as opposed to the idiosyncrasies of the 68

Both the C2 and C3 coupes would be Vettes with attitude; lowered, wide rubber, big blocks, side pipes, 5 or 6 speed box and set up with fully adjustable suspension.

So if money was not the issue it would be the C2 coupe and then the C3 Coupe
may as well be 67 L88 and then 69 L88, but L88 should be kept Factory, so 67 and 69 built to spec with old school 427, 454 or 502 if needs be.

I think I need to make a phone call to Camelot about the C6 ZR1

Re: My Ideal Vette


My apparent lack of apology to Ross is because I have already apologised to him, I had to; because I pushed him.
