Retro-future Corvette

May 7th, 2007

I went to the Hillsborough Concours d’Elegance this weekend, it’s one of the oldest classic car shows in the country. I forgot to take my camera with me, so had to resort to the camera phone. One of my favorites was this old 1950s (I think, maybe 60s) era Corvettes. Look closely at the second picture, the owner had inserted a modern Corvette engine into the chassis, I think it’s an LS (LS2 or LS6?) engine so close to 400 hp. Not sure if the suspension had been updated, I think they would’ve frowned on my crawling under the car, but it sure looked like a blast to drive!
