Feature Friday: April 8

There’s nothing we enjoy more here at Corvette Magazine than to see and hear about your Corvettes!

Send us a picture of your Vette, along with any important specs and we just might feature your prized possession on this page for all to see. If you’re working on a major restoration or upgrade, we want to hear about that, too. The best thing about the Corvette lifestyle is being able to share your passion with others!

Check out this week’s featured Corvettes:

John Perkins' 1972

Background:
My Vette was handed down to me by my uncle who bought it new in ’72. It has 60K original miles on the all numbers matching 350 coupe and is about 90% all factory original parts.

I put Crager S/S wheels on it and a Hurst Speed Shifter was added in the late 70’s. We still have the original parts that were taken off. It truly is a garage queen.

JB's Anniversary 2003

Background:
Currently having seals, gaskets replaced because of fluid seepage, with only 21K miles, somewhere along the way this cars has sat, unused, which we all know is a recipe for leaks!

Robert's Nassau Blue 1966

Specifications:

  • 427 L72 4 Speed
  • Ermine White Stinger Hood w/ Functional Cowl Induction
  • Teak Wheel
  • Knock Offs

Just fun to drive!
