David Schanock 1978 Corvette Pace Car Go-Cart and his Corvette Pace Car serial #0008 L48 4-speed, 1 of 70 made.
David Schanock shared photos of his 1978 Pace Car Corvette Go-kart that matches his Survivor 1978 Pace Car with the L48 engine with a four-speed manual transmission. Only 70 were ever made, making it one of the rarest cars that year.
The L48 was the base engine for the 1978 Corvette. When I read that it was one in 70 that seemed low for the base model so I checked the Corvette Black Book. In a December 1978 issue of Vette Vues Magazine, I found an article by Bill Locke, Vette Vues Associate Editor, that had the Limited Edition Corvette Production Data I thought you might find interesting.
David restored this 1978 Corvette Pace Car Go Kart built and designed by F.W. and Associates, Inc., Tempe, Arizona. It is powered by a 3hp Briggs and Stratton engine with an integral carburetor, recoil starter, centrifugal clutch, rubber bushings mounted between the body, and has a 1-inch tubular steel frame, heavy-duty pneumatic tires, ball bearing wheels, molded plastic seat, and single-piece fiberglass body.
1978 Corvette Pace Car Go Kart Specifications:
Hight – 19″, Width 36″, Length 87 1/2″, weight 140 lbs, Fuel – Regular Gas. Top Speed 15 mph.
Dan Skopp Shares his 1998 Chevrolet Corvette
Dan Skopp writes,
“I became a first-time Corvette Owner in 2007 after I retired from the Air Force after 39 years! My first Vette was a 1981, and I joined a car club (Badger State Vettes LTD) that year. I had my first Concourse at that show and saw a beautiful Black 1998 Corvette. I told the owners that when they were ready to sell this car, I was ready to buy it! I purchased the Corvette in 2015 and have had it since. I then found out that this car had been owned by members of this Corvette club since 1999. I drive it all summer, go to many car shows and get praise from all that see the car. The paint on the entire car is a black metal flake with a reddish tinge. The sides and the hood are a Dupont Chromalux that turns color as you walk around the car. When I got the car in 2015, it had 48k, and I now have 76K. I love the C-5!”
