So it should come as no surprise, but Hideki has a love for all generations of the Corvette. When it came time for a new project in the garage, why not a C3. This particular example has the 5.7 liter 350 engine, factory Rochester 4-bbl carb and three speed automatic transmission. It's a California car, so the low power L48 engine option was the best it could get. But the car is equipped with the FE7 Gymkhana performance handling package which was a big plus and helped sway the reason why I decided on this exact car. As for the car, it's in very good condition, needs the usual bits a car of this era needs and a lot of TLC and elbow grease. As for my plans for the car, I want to keep it fairly factory, but I do want to add all the L83 bits on the engine - cylinder heads, intake manifold and just make it a polished driver.
