Classic Rally Corvette
This C2 ‘Vette is another race-inspired road car. Shown here preparing to compete in the Monte Shelton Northwest Classic Rally, the car features modern steel racing wheels, a cut-down windshield, and a track-ready roll bar. There may be more valuable Corvettes out there, but this one could be the most fun. Page 5.
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.

Trans-Am Corvette
Another ultimate racing machine, this DerHaag C5 Corvette was made for competition in the SCCA Trans-Am series. It uses a tubular steel space frame, custom bodywork, suspension, and a 600 horsepower engine. The entire body can be taken off in less than a minute by an experienced pit crew. Page 11.

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.

Vintage Racing Corvette
Vintage racing is home to many Corvettes that once languished as neglected barn finds. This 1969 C3 427 convertible is owned by Eric Dolson and campaigned in vintage racing events in the Pacific Northwest. Vintage racing organizations are very strict about originality, so this car uses its original engine, transmission, suspension, and brake designs. Page 13.
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.
