Although the red car looks nice it needed a total restoration. It was a running, driving car but the car had paint and body issues. It was also an original yellow car. It showed 120,000 miles. The blue car has its original engine and trans and nice straight body panels. It has about 60,000 miles. Its a well known car in the old car hobby. The wing cars were built for NASCAR homologation rules. This means if you are gonna race a certain body style you must put the same car on the street. In 1969 it was 500 cars and in 1970 it was one for every two dealers, IIRC. These cars suffered from the weird factor and didn't sell well and were not driven much after they did sell. So many of them still have low mileage. All the attention you get from driving it gets a bit embarrassing.

Beautiful.
I live a few miles from the gm corvette plant and museum. It's worth a trip over to see.

Those Ford trucks look amazing. I want to modify my truck as soon as I get back home. The last time I made some changes was when I installed a set of KC lights.
