MY X  GIRLFRIEND  Peggy Intellectual Had  Saying  --- Her Accurate  True  Quote: 

There Are 2 Kinds  People  Who Drive Corvettes, Those Who Fit In Them, Those Who Try  To Fit In Them!

LITERALLY: 1,000s People  Drove Corvettes  63 (Fast Back)  to  68 (Coupe) Up  to 1982 Never knew Corvettes are/were Hand Laminated Fiberglas! 1968  Corvettes Chevrolet went  Great  Detail  to  Create  1st Exotic Body  Style...1968  Corvette Coupe Was via Space  Alien Technology... Original  Designer  Of MAKO SHARK  was Japanese  Engineer  Larry Shinoda  (Born March 1930 Died  Age  67)  He Came  from  Ford, In  between  Packard/Studebaker Went back  to  Ford...FINAL DESIGN: Was  Turned over to  Henry  Hagas  Studio!

MAKO SHARK 1968 was  Become   1st  Rear Engine Corvette... There  were  4  Known Test Cars  Start 1964...Rear  Engine Never  came To Pass!  GMC  Excuse  Corvette  Crashed  Hit  Guard Rails  - Detroit  Michigan Was Winter...It  Ran On F70-15  Bias Ply Tires... Radial  Tires  Not  Perfected  until  Late 1980s...Rear Engine  Cause  Front  To Rear Weight Body Ratio...TRUTH IS:  It would have  Meant Expensive Tooling Change  Over Manufacturing  Mount/Install  Rear Engines... Truly  It Was "PURE POLITICOS"!

 

I Order (September 1967) My  Got One  1st  1968 Coupes  Did Not Come until  May  1968... Along With  Problems/Flaws... Front Corners Fenders (Vibration) Cracking, T Tops  Cracking...No Side Exhaust  Covers/Shields:  Chrome Peeled Off Would  Not Adhere To  Aluminum Shields! Back Ordered: Months Later Winter  I Installed Side Exhaust !

 

ME: "Born  Under Hood  Of Car" Chevy Reps Nor  Beyrl Chevrolet Couldn't  Figure  Out Hi Heat  Problems...They Install  7 Blade  Fan Clutch (Unreal Noise)  I Remove 195 Degree Thermostat Replace  180  Degree...Installed Flexi-Lite  6 Blade Stainless Steel Fan...Remove Front Body  Insulation Let  Cool Air In...WORST PROBLEM: Winter  20 Below Zero  Engine Filled  Up  With Gasoline?  GMC Tech  Reps  Didn't  Know Cause? Replace  Mechanical Fuel  Pump?  Then I  Rebuilt 2  End  Carburetors!  SEE PHOTOS: Damned  Metering  Plates  Warped ( Gasoline  Pissed  BY)  Due To HI HEAT...

HERE  IS WHERE  I  BLOW  YOUR  MIND

  REASON WHY 1968  EXOTIC  BODY STYLE WAS DESTROYED DONE  AWAY  WITH IS

CALIFORNIA'S  CHP Complain To GMC 1968 Corvette  Coupe  Defeated  All  Police  Radar!  WHY? Simply  Because  Its  Snouted  Nose  and  Slanted  Radiator -- Radar Bounced  Off  1968 Corvette  Coupe...

 

BELIEVE ME: Even Stealth  Bomber Copied (Stolen From  My Now  Modified Version)  Metal Concept Spoilers...I  Do  Hold  Copyright/Trade Mark To My  Metal  Concept  Spoilers...If   I Could  Sue  U.S. Gov  And  Military  I  Would  Demand  Back Payment  Royalties Money$  In  Lieu  Of...

 

1968  Corvette Coupe Was  Built  75  Years Ahead Of  Its  Time...My  Metal  Concept  Allows  You Travel High Speeds On Freeways...I It did  160  mph  (Factory 427  c.i. V-8 Engine-Tri  Power) at that Speed  My  1968  Corvette Literally Floats On  Ground  Air  Waves Radial Tires  Barely  Touching --You Hear No Side  Exhaust No  Noise  Of  Any  Kind...   Exotic  Body Style Simply Was  Destroyed  In Name  Total  Fucking  Greed$...

Truly It Is/Was (Pure  Politicos) U.S. Gov. (Big  Brother) EPA...

 

You   Just  Cannot  Believe It:  In  1969  "YEAR SMOG  BULLSHIT"... State  California (Mexifornia) Then  Pulled  Phenominal  $60  Billion$ In Smog  Taxes...Just  What Do You  Think  MEXIFORNIA (U.S.Gov/EPA)  Pulls  In  In Smog Taxes 2010  Now...

 

IN ADDITION:  Corvette  Bumpers   Removed  Start 1974  to  1982...1984  to  1999  Corvettes  Look  Like Converted  Camaros...2000 to 2010  Corvettes (Plastic-Water  Base  Paints) Look  Liike Mitsa  Beastie  Rear Ended  By L A  Mexicanos  Garbage  Truck... Interiors  Look  Like Ugly  1966 Ford T Birds...Hidden Head  Lights (Trade Mark Of  Corvette) Were Removed  Simply GMC saved  Another  $ 10 Cents In Cheapening Corvette To  " JUNK STATUS "...  All  at  $50,000.00 Price  Tag...It Sucks  Big  Time...

 

CASH FOR CLUNKERS:  97 Older Corvettes 1953  to  1982  Were Destroyed - Crushed  (No Parts Saved) US.Gov/EPA You ASSHOLES  Got Taxpayer$2,000/4,000.00  Toward  Rebate$  On New   Car !? You  Just Traded  Yourself In  For  Expensive $50,000 Cheap  Made Ugly  BEER CANS ON WHEELS  ( No  Bumpers, No Undercar Frames, No Firewalls, No Trunks, Shot In  Burning Foam Insulation, Water  Base Paints,  Exploding  Gas Tanks) Death Traps on Way  To Your Very Own  (Fate) Funerals To Satan's Holy Hell.

...  THERE  WAS  ONCE TIME  IT  WAS " PRESTIGIOUS "  TO  DRIVE CORVETTE...

... It Was  1950s  to  1960s... What  Unbelievable  Fools  You  Mortals  Be...

... Only True  Real  American  Sports  Car  Destroyed  In Name  Total  Fucking  Greed$...

  I Cannot Stop  Laughing
