Absolutely gorgeous :) The split windows must have looked like they came from Mars when they appeared in the early 60s.

My favourite Vette is the Callaway Speedster, also the prototypes, like the Aerovette, and the forgotten gem that was the ZR1 Spyder.



In the garage no-one can hear you scream

Cool - one thing that put me right off the American muscle car thing was whether you could actually ahve a chrome engne bay and stuff in UK climate ?


This was the car I almost bought days before I went all mental and Esprit.

There is a guy who camps with us at Le Mans every year and has a 7ltr C3 Vette. We asked him what MPG he gets, and he said if he was careful 7, and if your not we enquired? 1 he replied!!!! Made me fell all smug about the 32 I was getting from the GT3.

Nice Vette by the way Lotusvette. I always loved the Stingray, something Sci Fi about it I always thought.

hi jon , sounds like your mates vette is a big block, anything between 5-10 mpg is good although mine is a small block, its 400 bhp, manual and only gives 12 mpg at best anytime, a low tune small block could return 18-20 but only just, talk about carbon footprint, steve

exaust is a handmade stainless twin 3"system with aero free flow mufflers , sets of car alarms, rattles the floor and has been built to take 600 bhp, i never put on the radio, the noise is fantastic

danny, car was last used in 1992, when it competed in circuit racing in europe, it then was took off the road with head trouble, and thats how it stayed till i bought it in 08, it was black, and needed it all doing, big money was spent by previous owner, and i redone it all again, 6 months later it was out and about, as you see it now, its stunning and needs nothing, fully detailed below and above

I don't own a 'vette and I don't have a pic of our vet, but after our second child and Liz's two from her previous marriage, I went to the vet. getmecoat.gif

All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.
