If your list dispalys your ideas for making a car "really nice" then your best bets are lots of stickers, some Type-R badges, bright yellow brake calipers, a big old fart cannan and a park bench.

By the way. Wasn't this your first post? Why yes it was. New members should always make their first stop the "Intoduce Yourself" section, especially when they're asking for help.

Ok, to be serious for a moment, showcars require a couple things to make them stand out: quality workmanship, detailing, and creativity. the last one doesn't mean sticking on all the latest accessories you can find. it does mean making a car as coherent a style, while making it not being a clone of any other car (unless it's a famous car that you're cloning, and doing a 'tribute" to that car. A prime example is the Hirohata Merc frm the '50s, or the Moonglow '53 Chevy).

Neon lights, stickers, and wings, CAN be used in moderation if that's the style you are going for, but they aren't necessary to make a show car, much less a good show car. You also don't need aftermarket performance products to make a good show car. Detailing and workmanship are more important.

A '63 Vette with a 427. Surely you don't think they came that way from the factory, do you?

A '73 Vette with a 427. Surely you don't think they came that way from the factory, do you? I seem to be asking you this question alot.

hmmm.... ok, maby i've been mis-informed here :banghead:, but my "chevy enthusiast" friend was going on about 427 chevy stingrays last night and i'm big enough to admit when i'm (or he is) wrong, so tell me what year was it then or was it all an after market modification which i was told was a production model? and, like i said before i want to learn so if there is anywhere i can read up on this tell me..

Corvettes most assuredly came from the factory with 427's. You now are aware that '63 was too early and '73 was too late, so that should narrow it down for you. Here's an idea, why not spend a little time online researching what years came with a 427 and let us know. You'll learn alot more by doing the work than if someone just hands you the answer.

seriously? shame you can't give out detentions here..but i suppose you can expell people.. ok, the vette was produce with a 427 block between '66 and '69 and was advertised as having 390 to 435 horsepower.. but it was actually much more.. now can i have a gold star? :lol: :joking: :laughing: :thumbs:

Yes. As my star pupil for the day perhaps you can teach Fife.Cruiser how to tell time.
