Ahh torque. Kids driving those hondas, they just have no concept of what a fast car is. The infamous 1969 ZL1, only a few sold, some in Camaro's - it was a 10 second 1/4 mile car bone-stock except for slicks and that's with 60's tire technology. Even the latest 2008 Corvette model Z06 is a high 11 second car at best (which is incredibly fast).

I didn't know we had a grammar class here.

Then again, you don't buy a vette as an investment (well, I don't anyways). You buy it to drive hard on the road.
I'm not sure it's the original color but every thing else is how the car came from the factory, she drives it and she is strong It's a nice ride.

Our '74 is definitely not NCRS, unless by NCRS you mean a not correctly restored shark.

You must visit the C3 forum on the CorvetteForum. NCRS is not taken too seriously there, lots of jokes about it, it's all about modifying a vette.

Someone came up with a lampoon sticker on the NCRS label with exactly that phrase and started selling them on the forum. NCRS lawyers actually came down on it! Incredible. Those NCRS guys are hardcore serious, strange guys, paying $800 for the correct gas lid, stuff like that.
