  1. Corvette C7

    Beautiful C7 and a gorgeous collection of Vettes! Love 'em ALL! What a surprise!
  2. 1963 Corvette Z06 "Tanker"

    Nice! The big tank (36 gallons) was an option during all mid years, but the Z06 was only in '63. It included the fuel injected engine, big tank as well as heavy duty suspension, brakes, cooling ducts etc.
  3. Z06 Fresh off the drawing board

    Love it! Looks like origami on steroids! Couldn't tell what it was from the first pic. Very cool!
  4. Hello, I received a private inquiry about the weathering. Since there are no secrets here, this is what I did: -A mist coat of acrylic brown. -I did a paper template of the windshield wiper sweep. Put it in place and do another light pass. -On this particular car, the back was the dirtiest after the race, so I did another pass on the back only. -A single low pressure (about 15-18 psi) splatter pass, head on, of acrylic dark grey (almost black). -Finally a black wash with a brush under the fuel fillers, lower front on the doors and air vent. I did not invent this. I was inspired and encouraged by Jim Drew to try it in my C7R after countless discussions on the topic. Bless the internet! Thanks,
  5. A Ford that chases airplanes for a living.

    Love the U2 and the chase cars. They have used even Corvettes for that. I'd chase it even in a Power Wheel if had the chance Here is a C5 Corvette chasing the Dragon Lady. It seems it only got to 3rd gear. I'd guess the chase is barely 100 MPH. Thanks,

  11. Another LSR Fantasy Car: Caddy Cat?

    Looking really good! Downforce will not be an issue. But make sure you have a couple of extra miles to stop the monster
