“A rare 1 of 1 Corvette C6-RS chassis #001. This was Gary Pratt’s personal car custom built from a new 2008 Z06. This is the only one of the total 11 built that was upgraded to a 427 cu in 750 Hp supercharged motor.”
Our next submission comes to us from Howard Kaufman by the Vette Vues blog.
Howard writes about his Corvette,
It’s a “1964 with automatic transmission and power brakes. VIN# 856! I’ve owned it since May 2017. I had the engine and tranny rebuilt and had a front disc brake conversion done. I LOVE it.”

Our next submission comes to us from Larry Vanscoy by the Vette Vues Facebook page. Larry is also a subscriber and submits many photos to the VV racing column, Keep’n Track of Corvette Racing.
“I had a 1976 Corvette that was being serviced, so while waiting I saw a black 1976 Greenwood Sebring GT. I fell in love. I liked the race versions of Greenwoods, then I raced a wide-body Corvette. While I was at the 1980 24hours of Daytona I photographed a Maroon Greenwood Sebring GT taking a pace lap. Little did I know that was a previous painting version of my 1977 Greenwood Sebring GT. I am the 4th owner of a fully optioned L-82.”
Our next featured Corvette is owned by Bill Pollock.
“I picked up from the original owner in 1971 still mostly original paint, interior and L79 drivetrain including the original clutch. Still drives and performs as new has never seen salt-covered roads and now has 97k original miles.”
