This one is indeed a beauty, those Cragar wheels just look so good on these early Corvettes. Oddly I found a second picture of the same car in a different spot altogether. This interwebby thing is pretty cool.

Kind of amazing that the Corvette above with a fuel injected big block is probably making 7 to 800 horsepower. That power really is limited to full on blasts down the track and yet the current production cars are making similar horsepower and yet are very manageable on the street even in traffic. I find that incredible.

From 1919 to 1969 cars improved a lot and from 1969 to now, things have kept on improving. I drove a friend's 2019 650 hp supercharged Corvette. As docile as Grandma's car or wild. At 60 mph on 401, giving it about half throttle, it was going to go squirrelly. The car was automatic and I wasn't used to it so wasn't about to get carried away. Steve & Keith's Corvettes.JPG

Showed a pic earlier of this car, "chaos in 3..2..1" (page 30 post 582). Here are a couple additional pictures and a bit of a back story. This 54 Corvette is driven by actor Ralph Meeker. Meeker was the first to play "Mike Hammer"; the film was "kiss me deadly". Anybody remember that movie?

New to Corvettes but wanted to race one. Hired a marketing firm to come up with a race number for maximum exposure. Not sure what it means but everyone says "hey look at that 63"... hot1-1.jpg

I wonder where Mikey disappeared to. Pretty much haven't seen him around since the Cold Lake Air show. Yeah. He did some great videos. He missed his calling.

Agree Eric I found Mikey's videos really entertaining, I always liked history and he managed to tell stories about people, places and events I never heard about. He did indeed have a real talent for them, probably wore his Z06 out wandering all over the mountain ranges.

Yep, I agree. I miss Mike's videos. It was great to see other parts of the country and Mike had a nice relaxed and easy way of doing his commentary.
