It's great to see a like-minded bunch of blokes.
About 32 years ago I came across a pic in a Street Machine magazine over here. The story was on a 75 Monza and I fell in love with the looks of it. I laminated that picture and it has travelled around the country with me during all my postings in the army and also when took my discharge after 22 years of service to Queen and Country.. It has always taken pride of place on the front of my fridge wherever I am just to remind me that one day I was going to get myself one of them. I had a few distractions along the way - 5 different C4 Vettes - but I finally picked mine up about 5 years ago. Now that I have my dream car I keep telling everyone that Corvettes are like arseholes - everybody has one.
My missus reckons I should have just done what was needed to get it on the road but when I started to have a close look at it I found a few problems so I ended up taking it back to bare metal and starting from scratch and doing a lot of mods. If you think you have problems getting body parts over there then you should try paying for freight to Australia
I sent some pics to Dick (Hammer Down) recently and he is going resize them for me and post them in this site when he gets a chance. Thanks Dick.
The attached pic is the car that has kept my dream alive.
