What do you think of the custom modifications that FSD did to this 1976 C3 Corvette?

Not a fan.  If I wanted a Viper, I'd get a Viper.

I have to agree with the comments above.  Interesting work but why spend the time, money and emergy to take a classic, whatever condition it was in at the start of the project, and turn it into something that kinda looks like another classic...?!?!?!?

A 76'!   Still a Red Headed Stepchild. What a waste of time and money.

I think the real question is what does the owner think of his creation??? The only one he has to impress is himself

Thank you, nosal1 for your comment.   I wanted to say that, but did not want to seem self serving.  As the owner of highly customized 75 Vette Wagon, I get lots of comments (expected), its always good to see people who realize its built for ME :)

BTW, nothing but good from this group here on C3VR

High cost over modification lost it's identity.
