I have had a few glasses of wine, My wife is out of town, and I spent all night watching DVR'd episodes of just about every car show there is.

The C3 section is rockin'. Everyone is getting along. Now I want to get personal.........

What are your ultimate dreams, aspirations, goals, and fantasies about your C3?

I know alot of you are in the middle of your restoration, restomod and/or modifications. I also know that alot of you are like me and have your vette and have dreams that currently outweight your budgets. Not to mention those who have not realized their Corvette dreams yet.

When I get in my 76' on a cruise night a certain nostalgia hit me. The weird thing is that it is a nostalgia that I have never known. Being 29, the 76' is a year older than me, and definitely a few years younger than my state of mind. My Vette reminds me of a southern Cali type of cruisin'. I love blastin Beach Boys, and other songs from the beach, big block, hot rod era.

My ultimate and most important goal is to one day have a 427 in my car. I already have the white lettered tires(which I believe I will always have), I have done the white faced gages, and the only other thing I really want is a custom paint job with a big block hood.

Some day...............................some day.
:thumbsup:

Cute, tonight MY wife is outta town in Valdosta Ga. at an amusement park with her 3 kids/their wives/husband, and 7 grandkids, which is why I"m not along....7 little kids??:crazy: :crazy: :WTF

at any rate, I think I have pretty well solved all the problems and got my '72 vert here to where I want it, mechanically, and so to do the top someday, not that I need it, being Florida and all, I could care less that it's not perfect...it's down 99% of the time....

I would love to paint it the colors of the Mako Shark show cars of the early 60's.....white on bottom, fading to yellow/green/blue-green/blue/black on top....

next life....

I'd like to someday turn my tired 350 into a stout 383 stroker and mate it to a five speed. Paint job (LeMans Blue). Just make it an all around super-cruiser.

Well, Im right in the middle of my resto mod on my 77. Doing the modern theme. LS6, 5 speed, rack and pinion, upgraded suspension, 18" wheels, ect. My goal for this car is to go road racing on the weekends and cruise on friday nights. Every ounce of time I have and every penny I own is going into this car. Of course, Im only 21 so thats not exactly a lot :laughing: ! Just came in from doing some powder coating on some suspension parts. Only one more mock assembly to go before the chassis is put together for the last time :partyon:

Mods for my 69 Killer Shark....

1. Block the body all back down and re-shoot it again to get that super slick perfection it was in 2001 once again.
2. yank the 468 EFI and swap with the yet to be released GM Performance 500 cid LSx block - with drive by wire EFI and cruise control
3. Swap the Richond ROD 6 for a T56
4. Install the new Vintage Air LSx front runner pulleys with the currnet vintage a/c system
5. Figure out how to install C6 Z06 brakes on all four corners
6. Clean and detail some supsension and other components showing their age and abuse and........

Drive the snot out of it again.
