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.

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.

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.

A fancy paint job is among the best modifications because it’s not permanent. A patriotic paint job like this on a classic 1965 convertible ‘Vette is sure to draw smiles and waves on the road, and it will win trophies at any car show or cruise-in you can find. Page 8.
