    1978 Corvette

    I took some photos with my new HTC Evo. Only a couple ended up worthy of posting. The car belongs to my uncle, it will be mine someday if all goes as planned.

    This Silver Anniversary Edition coupe has aftermarket T-Tops and radio. Under the hood the factory 350 has been rebuilt and by our best estimation pushes out around double the original HP. Everything else is original and the car has just over 26,000 miles as of today.

    Just these for now, more to come:

    That 2nd photo came out quite nicely for a camera phone. But what's with the license plate area?

    I'm not a photographer and I probably could have put a little more time into the pics. That photo I sharpened up a bit on Flickr.

    The license plate is covered by a piece of material from the cargo area.

    Gotcha, it looked sort of like a floor mat.

    Why aftermarket t-tops?

    They're transparent, you can see out from inside. We still have the originals.

    I love the wheel tyre combos from yesteryear. They still look tough. LOve the shape too. Hope you do eventually get it in your garage.

    The car is very underrated, the later C3 years are ignored after the emissions standards killed horsepower. The '78 was special due to the 25th anniversary and the famous Indy Pace Car.

    We put some time and money into it and we have a pretty badass machine.
