    They look pretty cool, and its nice to know if you got it at a BJ auction - the same paid shills that bid the prices up when you bought the the car will be there next year when you sell it.

    Flag 62 Street Machine

    When Barry Blomquist walked into the Roadster Shop in Mundelein, Illinois, the last thing on his mind was starting another project. He was just there to pick up some parts to continue working on his '56 F-1 when he saw a '62 Corvette across the shop floor, and it stopped him in his tracks. He flashed back to high school in the '60s and watching episodes of Route 66, as Tod Stiles and Buz Murdock cruised their Corvette across the country looking for adventure. A first-gen Corvette was every adolescent male's dream, and Barry was no exception.

    One of the bad things about resto-mods is that most of the time they use up good old Corvettes. That means less original Corvettes left for future generations of Corvette buyers.

    But I sure like the ones posted here.

    Flag This '62/C4 Hybrid has all the bells and whistles....


    Let's face facts: we live in a throw-away society. What was cutting-edge a year ago is on the scrap heap now. VCR not working? Throw it away and buy a new one. Computer outdated? You could upgrade, but it's usually cheaper to get rid of it and buy the latest and greatest, not to mention the fact that an upgrade-no matter how extensive and costly-probably won't measure up to the newest model. Is your automobile more than a couple of years old? Trade that sucker in! Why fix something that's worn out and outmoded? Why indeed..

    Default '67 Resto-mod...


    Some people like show cars for their craftsmanship, glossy shine, and flawless detailing. Others like show cars the same way they like looking at a piping-hot steak on a plate. They don't ponder too long before tearing into it, savoring every bit. Ron Johnson doesn't like to stare longingly at his steak; he likes to eat it, and so it is with his beautifully customized '67 midyear. This glistening inky-black roadster looks the part of a show-stopper and is anything but a pampered poodle. The Rockwall, Texas, native isn't known for his cautious driving prowess but rather for standing on the skinny pedal while letting the tires wail.

    Thumbs up '62 Vette-Rod


    We've featured Vette-Rods across a span of degrees. We've shown highly modified C1s until you've written us letters. We've covered the development of the C5 from the beginning. But never before has the union of a C5 and a C1 been so seamlessly executed than in Jeff Price's unrivaled Canary Yellow '62 Vette-Rod. Jeff, with the backing of a squadron of highly talented craftsmen and fabricators, has crafted something so purpose-built, so unique, and so wild that we would be remiss not to drool all over it.
