Hello everyone I who’d like to know what do you think about something. I have a 76 with a Luggage Rack.


I also have a LeMans style roller latch fuel cap



Now my question is: do I keep the a Luggage Rack or the back will Look better without it?

Nice ride:thumbsup:, IMO i'd keep the rack off, not much praticality to keep it, plus it's a pain in the ass to clean around it. Once again, nice ride, I really like the black with the chrome trim.:partyon:

Both cars look sharp man:thumbsup: If it was mine I'd take off the rack cause for my personal taste I like the racks on the 68-73 Corvettes. That Le Mans style is sweet:partyon: Again sharp Corvettes:thumbsup:

to me it would all boil down to ...do i mount my tops on the rack ...or not ...i like to pop the tops on mine and cramming them in behind the seats suck ....i use a fox cloth top to solve my issue ..but if i had racks and they were in good shape id use them with the top mounts ..if not id lose them.


my 2 cents

I guess I'm going to take the flip side. I like the racks, I had one on my 77 and to me the look is classic late 70's Vette.

Besides, how do you fill in the mounting holes?

My '74 had the holes but no rack, I was repainting the car anyhow so filling wasn't an issue.

If you wanted the fill the holes but were worried about the paint, you could always have some small stainless plugs made to fill them....I don't think they would look out of place, just a thought.

Up to you. Six of one, half a dozen of the other. Remove the rack and you will have six (or eight) holes to fill.
