Vette(s): 74 coupe 4 speed 350, 54K actual miles, all original; paint, interior, engine, split bumper. #'s match. 2nd owner, no stress cracks.
Thanks for the pictures from "across the pond". Nice to see everyone enjoys autos worldwide. Also enjoyed seeing the vehicles in the background. Personally, the red vette kit car looked OK to me; wouldn't want it, but it was OK for some people. Thanks again for sharing the pictures....

[QUOTE=Sportivo]Hey Barry - you look awfully cool, and calm at 100 mph!! Maybe you do that all the time, no? [/QUOTE]
yes, Sportivo, a bit to much.... that's about the speed my vette gives the feeling off beeing nearly airn born... a pitty that road keeping isn't a bit better... i'm working on it... As a matter of fact i read that even now with the new cars the ZO6 is so great ... except road keeping... and they expect better for the 2008 model ... damn, so what may we expect from a '70 one ?
Great problem is that steering feel go's away at higher speeds ...perhaps without the power assist it should be better ???
Just wonder , and maybe someone chime in with some facts , what the racers had in 69-70-71-72... ? power assist ? complete other suspension and steering gear ? yeah, perhaps we should surch in history.... Can't imagine that they were running 150 mph + with standard cars...
