Well in 1972 I bought my first and second 64 Corvette StingRays !     The first was a two top Roadster and then a couple of months later I traded it on a “Awesome” 64 Corvette StingRay Coupe with brand new Jet Black Paint and one very fast small block Hi-Po engine that was built to go fast!!:banvictory:     Also, my buddies and I did quite a bit of  (Bottle Bass Fishing)!!  LOL    :hysterical2:         Fast cars and Bottle Bass Fishing were very popular in our area at that time growing up!!   :stirpot:       And I wasn’t married either at that time, my buddies and I were having way to much fun back then!!  :lol:           Later Bud!            “GOOSE”            :peelout:

From Car &  Driver these mules just keep on trucking. The rear looks more rounded even in these telephoto shots.

These are high speed testing pictures at the GM proving grounds in Milford Michigan recently. See the helmets.  A lot less camo on these babies.

The black velcro strips you see on the doors and hood were used previously to obscure the Corvette's shape. Now that the car is officially confirmed, it seems the company has decided to let these prototypes breathe a bit more.CEF2E81F-039A-4D2F-B805-DC644B6FE68E.jpeg

Hey Keefer,  I love the wide-body look on the Super Snake, but I’m not a big “Vert” fan or black wheels, J.M.O.!     For that kind of “JACK”  I would be seriously looking at something a little more exotic, but I won’t feel good spending that much on a new “TOY”!!!   LOL   :thumbsup:          Later bud!                “GOOSE”   :peelout:

Hey Riley, you lucky “BUM”!!     Quit rubbing it in, and don’t forget to wear your sunscreen!!  LOL   Actually, that’s not really funny, because today I heard that nearly 2/3rds of sunscreen made isn’t even effective!!    Go figure, very sad!        Hope your still having a fun time, and have one for me!        “GOOSE”     :peelout:
