C4 Drag Racer
This C4 has been extensively modified for drag racing, including a hood scoop to draw air into the aftermarket supercharger. Look at the rear wheels and you can see huge drag racing tires. Fitting these tires requires gutting the chassis behind the driver and fabricating all new suspension, frame, and bodywork. Page 7.

1967 Corvette Convertible
This 1967 convertible has been customized in a “race-like” manner, but it’s still a legal street car. If you look closely, you can see the American-flag painted cover on the engine, which would never appear on a real vintage race car. A car like this is great fun at car shows, and performs well on the road, too. Page 12.

Corvette Summer
For the ultimate tribute to modified ‘Vettes, go and get a copy of Mark Hamill’s 1978 fun movie “Corvette Summer.” The nominal co-star is Annie Potts, who won an Oscar for her performance, but the real star of the show is the most intensely modified Corvette in history. Switched to right-hand drive, this car is the perfect expression of the axiom “it ain’t done until it’s overdone.” The car chase scenes alone are worth the price of the DVD. Page 14.

1962 Custom Corvette
A popular modern modification plan is to take a basket case C1 or C2 Corvette and restore it using all modern underpinnings and drivetrain. The result is a “resto-mod” car that costs well over $100,000 to complete, but which offers a new car driving experience. You can usually tell these cars from original restorations by examining the wheels and brakes, or by checking under the hood. Page 4.
SCCA Racing Corvette
This C5 is legal to race in SCCA's GT-1 class or in Trans-Am pro racing. You can see here that the bodywork is made to be a “silhouette” approximation of the original C5 Corvette. But as far removed from a street car as this is, it’s still a Corvette and still shares much of the street car’s DNA. Page 6.
