    Only the rarest of men dare to live their lives so vicariously through a race-prepped, street-legal ’63 split-window Corvette

    Default Some cars were ment to be restored to factory spec....

    Some aren't... but for the amount of cheese spent on these rides.. I think it would be safe to say just about any of these cars COULD be put back to stock, they wouldn't be original or survivors...
    If you have a barn find.... that's been stripped to be a 70's race car ( read original parts missing ) .. and no tracable history a resto-mod is a good way to go...

    For all the NCRS guys.. all this will do is make the value of your original car go up.. it's a win win.. I'm faced with the same dilema now.. my 64 will never be an NCRS contender.. so I will lean the other way and install better brakes & better engine... but any weird parts ( EG 63 cluster ) will be traded in to J&D Corvette for someone who needs just that piece for their NCRS car....

    These cars are a hobby, for most of us.. ( ok, ok addiction, obsession, etc ) and in hobbies like art forms, so of us paint in water colors, some in oils, some on side's of buildings with spray cans,, to each their own... it's all good!

    I vote YES for Resto-mods !

    There are times for thinking, and times for acting, but the art is in the balance

    If you read the contract with them, they can run it up themselves to the reserve. No harm no foul I guess.

    Mark Rife’s split-window ’63 Corvette was featured on the cover of last month’s issue. Rife has owned it since 1972, and he’s road raced and autocrossed it almost continuously since then. Rife also won the PHR jacket at our Indy event, and was just edged out in Del Mar by Mary Pozzi. The ’63 features an LS7 crate motor, Tremec five-speed, and suspension from a ’96 Corvette.
