    Not all Corvettes were destined to be the coveted model. For example, take any C3 model from 1976 - 1982. Thousends were sold, and very few were limited or special in some original fashion as marketed by GM. A restomod could really make that corvette a nice piece of machinery for fun, collecting, or just to invest in.

    Naturally, I would just have a restomod done on a Vette if her original identity is lost (engine, tranny, or even accesories). Otherwise, the sky is the limit.

    Kinda with Gerry on that one, i voted Who cares.. Seemed the most fitting of: To each their own. Most of our cars are resto's anyway, after 32 years, there is parts in my car NOT from the factory and the paint job isnt quite what Chevy put on there originally.. (/Sarcasm!)..

    But in these cases above: If thats what you want, sure, why not. Though i am NOT a fan of shredding an original, with all parts, car. If it was a shell before, why not do something with it.. They sure as hell look like fun.

    Though everything looks rosy here, the body modifications were major. To fit the SRIII chassis, the car was literally cut in half and the rear tub was rebuilt around those components.

    With a decent body, a rolling chassis, a modern crate engine, and a little bit of luck, you're bound to make your own dream Vetterod a reality.

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

    It's LS6 powered and... FLAWLESS!

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