She's a beaut. I'm loving the C1's more and more as I get older.

But not all Corvettes with a trunk are real Corvettes (IMHO)

I do not have a big pile of money, I wish I could afford to own all those Vettes I am just the guy who built the blue one ,I maintain a few collectors cars. and I build hot rods, drag cars , and custom off road cars. I have a small performance shop in Clackamas Or. I was blesed with an oppertunity to build this 60 the 62 I am building for the same guys son because he was very happy with the build and wants his son to have one as welll.

Thanks for the complements It was a very fun proect I cant wait to finish the 62

Lovely job indeed. The LS is a great engine, but being an old timer, I wanted an SBC when I commisioned my '62.

I envy guys who contribute work to their own rides. I can do maintence, but I can't do builds. I was bean counter, not a wrench guy, and as a result, I miss out on that part of the fun.

The intro section lists my collection. I guess the only engine not self-explanatory is, ironically enough, the C1's.
