    Which Corvette is the best Corvette? 😎

      Duke Craig ...I get it! I had a 75.....I just decided to build my last car, after this one I'm done. So it's going to get done in stages, and it's going to take some time...but this is the last hurrah! So I'm going all out, super car.....race car with plates.....ant the GTP blew my brain! I'm an old gear head as well....and totally understand your point. I'm selling my 79 t/a to start the process, and will finance the rest.... hopefully I won't be too old to enjoy it when done! Peace brother!

      When I say they might as well not exist it's not only based on scarcity it's also based on cost, a new base model mid engine Corvette is going to cost $60,000, in several years on the used car market they'll be $40,000-, by the time they're 10 years old they'll be from $10,000 to $15,000, then your average gearhead like me can buy one, a GTP reproduction will most likely always be beyond the grasp of John Q Citizen, not that I think people shouldn't build them, I'm just looking at it from the point of view of someone who will never have the money to buy something like a GTP that's an original or reproduction, I'd like to buy my own Saturn V rocket origional or reproduction but money will never allow it, oh well, I'll always settle for a nice used Corvette, I did it before in the late 80's with a 73 Stingray, if I sell one or two of my Harleys I can do it again.

      Yes, but prototype cars might as well not exist for us mere mortals, the new mid engine is a world class Ferrari beating car for $60,000, makes me PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
      Footnote; on the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11 we should remember that the Apollo crewmen traveled to the moon and back at 24,000+MPH making them the fastest human beings EVER, and every single one was an American, eat your hearts out rest of the world!!!

                        👍👍👍yep, spent years as a mechanic and had the fortune to work on some very nice automobiles including 2 Rolls Royce Cornish's and a 308 GTSi Ferrari, open the door of a Rolls and look at the wood that runs along the top of the door panel, unbelievable workmanship with no end grain showing, open the door of a Cadillac and look at the fake plastic wood grain at the top of it's door panel, but the thing is I can own a Cadillac, the Rolls is so expensive they might as well not exist in my world.
                        Footnote; more of a Rolls Royce Cornish is liscense copy or supplied from GM then you would believe, air conditioning compressor, front steering assembly etc etc.

                        New mid engine, world class performance for $60,000, go to Europe and buy a car with that kind of performance and you'll spend at least $250,000, makes me proud to be an American 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

                                                      Where do you get your facts? It was Chevy that broke the AMA deal by running their racing program out of the back door. They were supporting private SCCA and stock car teams running their products "unofficially", Ford basically said"if that's what's going on why hide it?" and went full factory.
                                                      And Chevy knew all about what zora was doing with the GS's, how do you think he got his hands on those aluminum 377 small blocks? They hooked up with Mecom and the Nassau race organizer to get those cars down there. The sweetener was Chevy giving Mecom one of the small blocks to run in his Lola sports prototype. That's the car that beat everyone in every event it entered. The GS's scored "class" wins. The ones that finished that is.

                                                      And they DID run in Nassua the next year, only by then Shelby had prepared a 390 Cobra for that ass, it pretty much did to the Chevy's what they had done to the 298 snakes the year before....right up to the point it broke.

What's it called again? Oh yeah, FORD

Dough Hooper won the first Riverside race against Cobras in 1963. The L88 427 66 Corvettes painted the writing on the wall for Cobras! By 1969 Corvette was king again..and as they say the rest is History!
