Re: Z066 :: 1966 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe

Thanks so much! I am dying to get it back on the road. Hey, I noticed you mentioned bringing the Shelby to the May gathering. You make the call, I could just as easily bring this instead. Lemme know.

Re: Z066 :: 1966 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe

Hehe, yeah, I am just now figuring out how to do this garage thing (updating pics, etc.).

Yeah, the Vette is pretty unique. Well, if I have it back from the shop by then (I should) I will definitely bring it.

Mike

You're a very sick sick man to have that and not be driving it whenever possible. That is one beautiful ride. Any chance you have a video of it idling (or revving)?

Re: Z066 :: 1966 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe

Thank you very much, Chunderboy. You are correct, in that I do try to get it out on the road as much as I can, weather permitting. It still has a few small issues I need to get resolved next week (the price of having so much custom work done). That was why I was a late to the New England gathering they had in Foxboro last Saturday.

Anyway, I have 7 videos up on youtube, if you do a search on "Mike Samuel 1966 Corvette Coupe Restomod", or start with this link of the first video and look for the others.



The last video I put up is from riding in the car, so you can hear it running on the road. It is truly a fun ride!

Mike

Re: Z066 :: 1966 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe

Think i just fell in love.
My dad is currently restoring his 69' corvette. I'm a big fan of basically any Vet.
