Very nice...my dream machine is a 1967 Corvette Coupe.
I want one in any condition, the worse the better. I don't care about
originality, or matching numbers. I just want the car, and I want to
build it my way, with the options I want. It would be very stock
looking--no need to screw with perfection :-)
I'd have other upgrades elsewhere (drivetrain and suspension). I did
find a '66 Coupe for $3500. It was a body and frame only. No
interior, drivetrain or suspension. The body was pretty well thrashed
too. But it DID have a valid, clean VIN and title. So it was almost
worth the $3500 for that.
I've actually thought of building one piece by piece, from scratch.
The only piece you can't find is the body shell. Everything else is
available as new reproduction parts. I know it'd be pricy, but
considering the currently market value of these cars, it'd still be
cheaper than the $60k+ that they're going for.
And I wouldn't piss off the people who are freaks about originality.
My only complaint would be titling it as a kit car. That's why I was
so juiced about that '66--no matter what I did it'd never be
"original", yet would've still been a "real" '66. I would've had free
reign over its design.
