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.

Larry writes,

“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.”
