    Some really interesting posts today. Both the Ghia Aigle and the fuel injection are very interesting. Thanks for posting.

    Car appears to be cover car on Feb 2010 issue of Corvette Enthusiast. Car has number of special features to include paint color, headlamps, and interior trim changes. Looks great to me, but I'm biased.

    Well, isn't this typical! A beautiful gal ... and three guys wearing silly hats fussing with the car instead. I assume the fourth fellow fell out of the helmet? Pan down ...

    Great picture Jim. Did you notice that the silly hats are printed on her skirt also?

    Here's two I shot at the NCRS Flint national convention in 1978.

    Default C-1 picture

    Here's a shot of my first Corvette a 59 which I bought back in 64. I sold it when Uncle Sam called me up in 65. The other pic isn't a C-1 but I think it's neat. The guy in the photo is a friend of my brothers who had a slight fender bender with his 65 back in 1966 or 67. This is a scan from the Newark News and shows him right after the hit saving his 8 track tapes.

    It looks good with the '64 wheel covers. Your brother's friend is lucky that he didn't store his 8 tracks behind the seats.

    I'm jealous. Your '59 looked a whole lot better than my first Corvette, also a '59. I bought mine in the spring of '69:



    The heart of the beast (note the Jardine Tri-Y headers):



    Ya gotta love the "office" and the Rat Fink shifter.



    Would you believe this POS would do the quarter in 13.9? (note how little superfluous fiberglass or chrome there was to slow it down).

    Default 59

    Yours doesn't look bad. Most of that will buff right out !
    I remember when I bought mine the seller wanted $1,300.00, I offered $1,000.00 and a week later he called and accepted. The car was pretty complete, 2 tops, 4 speed, 230 base motor but the interior looked like a grenade went off in it. I was eighteen and couldn't care less, I had a Vette. I sold it for $1,200.00 a year later when I went in the service and was sick untill I found my 62.
