Awesome Vette. The Corvette is the most beautiful car ever made IMO, and I stick with that IMO.

I htink your camera is a little off on it's date lol.

This body style is not my favorite body style corvette. HOWEVER, anything making that much power with that little weight is f'ing sweet!!!!!!

Nice! My pops has a modded 58 vette. Same valve covers. Just finished everything last winter. New interior... Everything was gone through. Has a built sb 350 and a cast iron saginaw 4 speed. Right after everything came together he blew the rear end trying to show off, lol. I told the damn kid not to do a smoke show!!

Obviously I guess you must not have to pass an emissions test in Virginia. That wouldn't even pass a visual test here!

Nice car.

sorry to bump a thread over a year old, but i had forgot about. To answer a few questions its a auto (700R-4) which should be trashed soon in favor of a power glide or hopefully a 6 speed tremec. Dads not had much time to mess with it over the past year, so its just gets the normal fire up and a short drive now and again. He's thinking its gonna have to ditch the dual carbs b/c its dumping to much fuel.

and lol yeah that date is off, or maybe it was taking in the future
