Got a classic? Tell us about it and post a picture of this current toy.

This is my toy - the Blood Red Vette:

1974 Stingray with 350, 4-speed, low profile Edelbrock kit with 2 four barrel carb's, Malory Distributor, and Malory Coil.

rear bumper has been changed to a more modern look - will soon be back to the original. Don't care for the upward flair of it.

I've got a 82 and like the 80-82s better than the 74-77, but I'm not sure if I really like the later rears on earlier coupes. Are you going to stick with the later wheels? What year caps are you running? It almost looks like a different one front and back.

Man, I woudt' change the rear spoiler, as it's the best part of that body style (the later C3 Vette).

But then again, I love that type of rear deck spoiler on everything.

I think the rim's are off an 85 ...

I like the maco shark style on this era ... also the '74 was last pre-catalytic converter so the floor pan is not metal.

I like how it is supposed to be on the back end with the down slope.

wanna hear something sick?

back in the day I left a '68 GTO convertible behind w/ sb 400 and the old semi automatic slapstick - back then it was a $700.00 car - no big deal!
