Page 4: Other Vettes That Have Come and Gone

- 1966, 1967, 1980 & 2000 Corvettes -

This was our first Corvette. We were looking for a high option and all original car and were lucky enough to find this one. At first we didn't realize how rare it was until our first NCRS show. The car was literally all original with only the tires, exhaust and battery changed from when it was built. The options included: red leather seats, tinted windows, headrests, air conditioning, positraction, power brakes, transitor ignition system, 427/390hp engine, 4-speed transmission, off-road exhaust, teakwood steering wheel, telescopic steering column, power steering, knock-off wheels, white-wall tires, AM-FM radio and traffic hazard lamp switch. The car had all the documentation including the original manuals and tags, protecto-plate and even the original check used to purshase the car. Even the original A/C sticker was still on the rear window! The restoration was contained to only those areas that needed refreshing or rebuilding and the body was never removed. It was a multiple Top-Flight car with a high score of 99%. The car was driven and shown for several years at local shows and cruise nights.

After an extensive search this car was purchased as a driver since we ended up not driving the 66 Vette as much as we had originally intended. It had it's original drivetrain (327/300hp) and the body and frame were in great shape. The car had been through a fairly complete body-off restoration but needed lots of detailing, rebuilding of the engine accessories and restoration of the interior. It was a low option car with only the 4-speed transmission, AM-FM radio, side exhaust and positraction as options. It was a great driver and was used for local shows and cruise nights for several years.

This car was found totally by accident. Sometimes when you are not looking for a car a nice one shows up unexpectedly. This was purchased locally from the second owner. It had most every option available and only had 32,000 miles on it. The colors were red exterior with an oyster interior. The options included: power door locks, tinted glass roof panels, cruise control, L-82 engine, automatic transmission, aluminum wheels, 255/60 R15 white letter tires, AM-FM Stereo, power antenna, heavy duty shocks, rear window defogger and heavy duty battery. The car was driven and shown at local shows and cruise nights for several years.
This was our 2000 C5 convertible which was delivered in May, 2000. It was a fully optioned six-speed with a Sebring Silver exterior, Torch Red interior and Black top. The major modifications included Corsa Indy exhaust, Bassani X-Pipe, AutoBuff's engine compartment dress-up, Polished sill plates and subtle pinstripping. It was sold in 2002 to Janet Dawes who, along with her husband Jim, has continued to add many custom touches to the car. Janet has won major awards at Super Chevy and NCCC events as well as at local shows. These folks really know how to take care of a car and prepare it for shows. Janet enjoys driving it as well and we couldn't have found nicer folks to take care of one of our favorite cars.
