What is a Shadowfax?

In J.R.R. Tolkien's book, The Lord of the Rings, Shadowfax was the Lord of all horses. He was a descendant of the greatest horses of Middle-earth. Shadowfax was said to run faster than the wind. Shadowfax's coat glistens like silver; and by night it is like a shade, and he passes unseen..

Shadowfax was too wild to be tamed so he was given to the wizard Gandalf the White by the King of Rohan.

“There is none like to Shadowfax. In him one of the mighty steeds of old has returned."

I see you had just an eensee teensee bit of modification done to this Corvette............... Love the air cleaner mod with the paint present when you open the hood. I can't imagine what this must have cost. Oh wait......I know.......it's PRICELESS!! Hats off from one C2 owner to another.

I wiped the drool off my chin....and off my table. I know I'll never own something like this, but I have fun dreaming I will. I'm just happy being able to have what I have and be thankful I a C2 to drive.

And a beautiful C2 it is! If this car had a good frame under it when I bought it I would be driving a stock 327 Goldwood Yellow Corvette and loving it. I do have to admit, as updated, it is a hoot to drive.
