    I've seen this one in person, at QuakerSteak on 49th Street in Pinellas Park, FL.

    It's LS6 powered and... FLAWLESS!

    Default Sweet '77 resto...



    How do you define "Corvette-ability?" Is it the combination of styling, handling, and power that makes it America's Only True Sports Car?

    The term “restomod” gets thrown around quite a bit these days, and the basic definition is to make an old car perform like a new one without destroying the vintage style. That's exactly what Maryville, Tennessee, resident Dwayne Gross accomplished with his '60 Corvette, but he never intended on taking it this far when he purchased the car in 2001.

    Excellent statement and the term resto-mod has a few definitions; the first you mentioned. Another definition begins with a tube chassis and although it looks like a Corvette; but nothing is Corvette.

    In their place, I can appreciate both.
