Video: Tour of the Dave Kindig 1953 Corvette CF1 Roadster 

One of the issues of the C1 Corvette was it was a bit awkward for larger adults. Many Corvette enthusiasts who bought or tried the new 1953 Corvette discovered that if you were much over 5 foot, 5 inches, it was almost impossible to drive! Dave Kindig 1953 Corvette solved the problem by making the CF1 larger in every direction. Dave Kindig says a 6 ft 5 in driver can easily enjoy this car. Check out this YouTube video as Dave Kindig gives a tour of the custom-built Kindig-it CF1 Roadster powered by a Lingenfelter LS7.
