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.

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.

1965 Corvette Convertible
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.
Is there a winter tire for the Corvette...
The Corvette Stingray Z06 has been proven at the Nürburgring, on the Virginia International Raceway and on countless test tracks. But there's one arena that may have it beat: the winter road.
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.

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.
American Le Mans Series C6.R
This is the 2007 Corvette Racing C6.R from the American Le Mans Series. In 2007, these cars still used a 7.0-liter LS7.R engine, producing 590 horsepower. This car also used custom carbon brake rotors. Corvette Racing’s cars have won 77 ALMS races, and eight consecutive ALMS championships. Page 9.

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.
