    Very nice!

    (What are they?)

    The top one looks like a Corvette of some kind, although I am probably wrong.

    60's are my fav shape, no idea what performance is like but they do look amazing.

    The C3 'Vette is a car I will one day own. I want a '74 454 big block though and they are hard to come by.

    That second pic is just gorgeous. Amazing that a car designed in 1967 can look bang up to date with a few mods.

    They are stunning cars, one of the best looking cars ever IMO. There is one rotting away on a driveway near where I live. It really hurts to see it falling apart, going green with moss :(

    I think you can pick up those 70's Vettes for about £4K, they're not worth much. It's the mid 60's ones that get the money, especially the big-block ones:

    Monkeyspank it's probably not rotting away, it's made of plastic!

    C3 vettes are my favourite cars ever (I pimp them in all the "what car would you have threads :))
    Ideal car is a C3 vette, RHD conversion, custom tvr style dash and interior. brand new 350 although I dont have a spec list of what i'd do to the engine, yet :)

    Speaking of american cars a friend of mine just bought a 70 or 71 Trans in purple with a 455ci BB in, cream leather interior, absolutely gorgeous car.

    nice car

    when i was in boarding school, one of the staff had a blue stingray, one of the boy didnt liked the car so he superglued the key holes around the car. it was funny as hell when we saw him tried to open the door and lost his temper.
