WOW! Much improved C2 Corvette over the C1! The Best of the Best in my opinion. What's not to like: Bigger monster engines, more HP, the new Stingray, independent suspension, hidden headlamps, 4 wheel disc brakes, hi compression engines, lighter bodies, and the list goes on! These are the most collected and most desirable of all the Corvettes! I'll take any year C2. Enjoy![Reply to this comment]

Mario, Mario, Mario, I know you made this thread JUST FOR ME. But I will allow you to share it with others. I only ever owned 2 C2s and enjoyed them both. Now, I would need your money, George's money and Dave's money to buy one. Amazing how the car market is NUTS NUTS and NUTS. I used to think $30K was a lot for my first C2 15 years ago. $30K won't even buy you a frame now. So, unless there's a miracle, I don't see another C2 in my lifetime. But I can always enjoy others C2s and memories of mine.
Thanks for making this JUST FOR ME..... A lot of people have told me how SPESHUL I am. I hope they meant in a good way.

Yes Rob I made this C2 Page Just For You! I also did one on the C1's hope you get to see it.
Actually I was thinking of you when I was doing the C2 Page and looking at the current prices for these fabulous cars! Wow, they sure have gone up in the last couple of years!!!
It's like the housing market today. You have to own one to be able to buy one after selling the one you own!
Cheers, Mario[Reply to this comment]

I'll dig around and see if I can find them. They were both 1964s, called the ugly redheaded stepchild of the C2s because the are or were the cheapest due to them not having disc brakes, big blocks, split windows and etc. But I found they have the nicest dash of all the ones.
I even have a Tee Shirt with the 64 logo on it calling owners "THE SECRET SOCIETY". The secret is out, now 64s are no longer the least expensive.
And to find COUPES!!!!
That saying when the top goes down the price goes up no longer applies as coupes are now in demand. Mine were both coupes, with 327s, and 4 speeds. No frills, no extras, just a good looking owner and driver with that cheese smile you say right before the flash on the camera.
My C2s were simple, which they say you can tell a lot about a person by his car.
Now, where could those pics be? I see them in my head.........and lots of things go there to get lost and never heard from again. Ask me how I know.[Reply to this comment]

I'm still working on procuring my "last" C2. Car is about 3.5 hours away. A 1966 that spent it's life in CA. Started out as a big block 427/390 4 speed. That engine was removed and a 327 was installed during the gas crunch. It still has the 327, 427 whereabouts is unknown.
It's a modified body with fender flares and wide wheels and tires. The car had a complete fresh down to bare fiberglass custom paint job 15 years ago.
And it's a coupe. I love coupes. Maybe because I grew up on a farm and we had plenty of coupes for our chickens.
We shall see what happens in the next 10 days. I'm hoping to bring it home. We have established a price. Now it's time to see if the car meets those price expectations and my scrutiny.
I'll be happy to start a new thread on this C2, if a deal can be completed. We shall see.[Reply to this comment]

Wow Rob a 66 Corvette Coupe 327! How awesome is that! I'm happy to hear you found that.
I love the small front grille and the chrome bumpers front and back. They remind me of my 69 Camaro bumpers.
I wish you all the luck and good fortune that the 66 meets and exceeds your expectations.
I look forward to seeing a new thread on your 66 Vette find. Cheers![Reply to this comment]
