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.

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.

Ferrari Replica Corvette
There’s such a thing as going too far. This “Ferrari” is actually a modified Corvette. Unless they started with an inexpensive C4, chances are it was worth more before it was turned into a movie prop. Page 10.
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.
