Ok... who's is thinking of doing some mods over the winter?
Found a few Corvettes that proudly display the individuality of their owners.
Maybe there is a nice outline for an idea you have in there. Hope not! :Wideyed:
...well the black C7 is pretty cool.

Enjoy and feel free to add.

The stuff of nightmares Derek. You are right the black C7 is the only good one in the bunch. I will however take the plough if somebody has a hardtop to stick on it.

Nice photo collage.:thumbs:

Some crazy looking mods. Can't say I'm a fan of any of them. A heck of a lot of work and money went into some of them.

Well... that was a bit overwhelming... The checker plate fenders caught my eye though..... Those would ease my concern over the 2 km of gravel I have to drive....

Maybe I could use the FLY-N -HI C2, fit a hitch under to pull my trailer and use it to go fishing with style

That's the corvette I'd take out of all that bunch.

Mods are done for the year. I may cut the front suspension bushing a bit to get the front to sit a bit lower, then half the stops in the shocks for a bit more suspension travel but that's it. I doubt I'll get as much travel as FLY N HI but I'm not lifting my car to do that.
Some of those people definitely had to be on acid or LSD to think what they did was a good idea. Yuck.

I've seen lots of guys lower the C7s with backing off the factory adjusting bolts and agree the cars do look much better lower without the big wheel gap but there has to be a price for that in suspension travel... wheel rub and bottoming out? Or some issue with the Mag Ride system not liking it?
I really do not know. On YouTube it is only reported as "Awesome".
Anybody know the actual results/consequences other than the reality of being lower to the hazards on the road?

If lottery money were in hand,I’d find a sister car to this and keep it original. This,,,I’d have fun with on my “hundreds and hundreds” of acres.

The original C7 Stingray concept car. Doesn't have round tail lights so I don't like it. :rofl:

I always like this rendition of a C3 made from a C6. Sounded like a lot of other people liked it as well, but it never took off.
