I don’t mean to seem smug but not only do Bruce and I share the same last name but I own an identical C-1. Well, sort of anyway……
BTW for all Corvette passionates: Take a look at this test of sports car on Nürburgring made by renown Geman magazin Sport Auto/Auto Motor und Sport: https://www.auto-motor-und-sport.de/news/top-50-supertest-nordschleife-wer-ist-der-schnellste-in-der-hoelle-8228137.html
The C7 Z06 on 4th Place is faster than the Ferrari 488!
Same philosophy as me about cars. There’s some old metal in the basement car park of the company I just left. A Ferrari 275, a Aston Martin db4 zagato, testa Rossa, the list goes on… all of them behind cages under covers. They’re dead, they look like animals in a zoo, sad and neutered. Use them or sell them to someone who will.
I bet you live in the UK. Saw many a magnificent car sitting under a could of dust in some of the garages in Kensington. Disgusting
If ever you are in the market for a nephew, my contact info is attached….
Kurt, the Nephew… 🙂
I love that sound.
Corvette C6.R: a very rare race car. Only 9 made! Just 9 years ago and very successful race history in Le Mans. Now we are waiting first the last C7 ZR1 powertrain as the last front engine driven Corvette. And…what’s next? GM’s plan to leave the Corvette DNA..Hmmm, let’s see!
Thanks Bruce for bringing the C6 to our attention. A real throroughbred!
