 I am just the messenger for my wife Claire,she owns the 79 Light Blue L48 Corvette that she has had since new,she bought it as a demo model being that the owner of the Chevy Dealership in Ont drove it as his own until she bought it.When her car is to be restored it will be to her specs (not mine) I am just the wrench so to speak.My wife is not very handy with the Internet so she will get me to come here to read the messages so if you see my handle here it will be her doing the talking(so to speak).Anyway just letting you girls know you have one more owner here from BC Canada.Ask her to post her 1980 pic with her Vette !  streetstock72  2009-01-28 16:01:23

Hey there! I also have a  79 very light blue  Vette!   It is so funny to have people constantly asking what color the car actually is! Mike (Iron 82) took 2 pictures of my car at a show, one ine the sun and one in the shade.   In the sun it looks white (as does your 1980 pic ), and in the shade it looks blue ( as in your garage pic ).  Its good to see a similar car.   Welcome and good luck!

That was an unusual color.  It did look different in different light.
 
I always liked it a lot, from the first one I saw come rolling into the dealer.  (Yep worked for Chevy in 77 and for a while after that)
 
It could only be better in bright RED
 
Very nice car.   Welcome aboard!

Hi Paul and Claire...Missed this thread in January so thought I would join in now. I live in Vernon and go to the track a bit, recognized the 72 from Sun Valley. I have a white 69 chev pick up (not on the road) so relate to the 72 when you are racing. Also have a 76 been working on for awhile and getting close to being on the road. Will look for you both at the track, hope to meet up with you one day. This is a great site for info, would like to meet up with some of the other site members also. Take care, Eric...

I would concur.  Bend would be a longish day's drive or two really easy days.  The people are awesome - especially those from the Pacific Northwest.
