Yep, those 2 new front fenders and headlights made it look like Anna
Nicole. It also picked up 51# then picked up 120# the next year with
the same design except for the removal of the suspenders and fake
On the other hand when the '68 (3070#) came out it topped the '67
(2960#) by a mere 110#, more than twice the '57/'58 comparison.
Here's a fellows '67 that got the size tires under his C2 that I
seldom see on a C3 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ulWpXFxDxww Nice guy
that I've toured with.
Enjoy what you have, they're all fun.
All that chrome too - yuck. IMHO The 56/57 was the peak of the C1 design.
65-67 for the C2 with the BB and disk brakes added. 68 and 69 for the C3 is
generally agreed as well - before even more bloat and fuel and EPA issues
came into play.
I briefly had a '59 and didn't care for it as much as my '68. (Though with a
"built" 327 and posi the thing really hauled ass in a straight line.)
My '61 had it all over the '57, and the '63 just about soured me on
Corvettes for ever. The '92 didn't help revive the love for them that
much either. Although I like to drive the '72 I'll take the '64 over
it every time. Got to go to South Carolina for my Granddaughters
birthday mid month and will make a one stop 600 mile trip in the C6,
lazy mans car. Drove a few big blocks and never got into them, always
liked the quick winding more agile feeling small blocks.
What did you think of Mac's '67 video?
Gray Court, south of Greenville about 15 miles. Ever been to the BMW
museum by Greer? Great place and will leave you wanting to go out on
385 and speed. Trip will be a bit longer this time as I-40 is still
closed at the NC/TN line, been down about 5 months.
