Young guys working with what they got. I will drop one episode here. Narrowing a c4 batwing in this one. Their frame looks good, considering how they did it.

Apparently the real deal.

“ Larry Bowman leaving Alice's after bringing the Grand Sport out for everyone to enjoy. Yes, he drove it there from home. 06/11/2011.”

@ 8:50 he talks about a Timken document that has the dimensions for standard bearing hubs. That would be a nice thing to have.

I like the batwing narrowing method.

YouTube suggested this, not vintage, but some interesting portions. Newman hits the wall. Part 1 & part 2.

Never heard of that car but it must be a museum piece. Had to laugh when I saw Leno driving. His knees were blocking the dash gauges.

Yeah, said he had trouble with the brake pedal. Jay Leno makes some pretty good vids. They said this car inspired Shelby to make the cobra.

YouTube offered this:

Sebring 1957

King Rose has some great old videos. Racing, Car Advertisements, Americana. This 12 minute video has lots of shots of the 1957 Corvettes in the race. I loved it.

more Sebring

I have been fortunate to attend 2 Sebring races.
My wife puts up with it, but it gives me a chill. It is fun & exciting.
Following are pics from our adventures.

Sebring 2006 – we were track side – a hundred thousand folk camp out starting on Wednesday. Vintage racing too.

Sebring 2007 – we were right across from the Corvette pits.

You have made some good racing videos over the years. I’ve got to make some time to watch these. :thumbs:

Retired Again!
Doc!
Awesome and thanks for sharing those. Sebring is my "home" away from home. As soon as my 'vette is on track I'll post mine too.

Cheers - Jim

pssssssst – Don’t let on …

I’m a semi-professional Corvette racer also.
This video show me, my Co-pilot Fred & Navigator Debbie.
Only lost to a C5R by a very small margin but the track was wet.

We have “raced” these C5R’s 4-5 times at Limerock & once at Sebring. And video taped all of them races for my “competition” license.

There was lots of laughter. Bobby Rahal even crossed our path in one “race” at Limerock - almost ran him down. 1800+views & only 2 likes. Perhaps other drivers must be envious of our skill. ☺
We are real Corvette groupies.
