=====================Honestly I do not understand your comments about the hood ... maybe something was said about that in the EBay write up...I just did not bother to read it...
BUT ...there are plenty of Corvette owners who could care less about Collectable Corvettes, or numbers, or correctness, but do care about what's under the hood, and how the car "comes off" visually and how well it drives....
One mans "shit box" is another's pride and joy...

Whats "under the hood" is aftermarket crate engine, with a Aircleaner bolt too long and it practically went through the hood

What is it with you guys? First RS and now Lone Wolf?
Is the only Corvette worth anything the one that is 100% restored to original spec? You know, some would say it is only those that are 100% original, which of course does not exist.
It is a decent looking car. It was not built for NCRS, and doesn't appear to be claiming that. It was built to go fast, and to look good. That is something Duntov said once, btw, and this one wraps both together. He said that there is the Corvette to go fast and then that black one to roll up in front of some expensive place. Well, it looks like this one covers both.
Does anyone remember when Vettes were valued as cars? And valued by the quality of the work and what was done to them, rather than simply if they are original?
What you should be griping about is that CCC is a company that is spamming us.

If they said "FA" instead of "FS" it probably would have been more acceptable. What gets me is with over $40,000 invested the seats are torn up.

Sorry about the FA tag.
The 40k is just in parts. There is about 70k in the car completely.
We see this kind of thing a lot. We are appraising a truck right now that has aroun 150k invested. Unfortunately it is a one of a kind and will appraise around 45-50k
On this one the restoration was over a 3 year period, and when the owner realized how much he had in it, he decided to sell it without putting any more money in it. That is why the interior isn't done.
If someone wants to build a show custom, this one already has a lot of the expensive work done. It was a 350/4spd car to begin with so it wasn't historically significant. It would be a different thing if this sort of build was done on an original big block car.

I agree. I'm not a purist, I want a car to drive and enjoy. I had a 66 big block car in need of resto about 15 years ago . I wanted to upgrade everything and make it nice. I checked into some prices and values before starting. If I restored it to exact "NCRS" bullshit standards I'd have a car that I couldn't drive and enjoy, butt worth about as much as it cost to "restore" it. If I fixed it up as a neat driver, like this one we're talking about, I'd be in the same boat - fun car but no real value - except for the fact that it would be exactly what I wanted. That's where my 79 is now, I love driving it, no where near stock looking or anything. I have upgraded everything as money has allowed, tires, wheels, suspension, engine, interior and especially the radio. Different strokes for different folks, just enjoy whichever way you go But don't cut a guy down for doing it his way
