Default Found this in the junkyard

A year or so ago my buddies and I were walking around the local junkyard and came across this old vette just sitting there. Looks like the Greenwood version?

Went surfin' at work today.......( don't tell my Boss ).....and I did a search for some Vette stuff. I ran across a Greenwood GTO that had the same body parts. They did go on to mention that the "Greenwoods", had a professional racing suspension. If I were you, I'd sell everything I had, 'cept for my ......well....uh. Man, that would be a tough choice to make, between it an my "Starship". But, do ya get my point? .....and go see if that Vette is still there, and bring it home. ( before the person that has it, finds out what it is ) Offer 'em 2gs, and see what they say.

Like DV8 says in his signature,"A question not asked, is the same as gettingthe answer no."

( I'll try to find the site again, and post back a link. )

Back by popular demand, Greenwood Corvettes is proud to offer the first in a series of vintage body kits for the 1968 to 1982 Corvettes. Our GTO body kit is made from the same molds that our original GTOs used. We now build all parts with vinylester resin, which means your Greenwood G3 bodies are stronger than ever.

Now, is that "BAD"?, or What! [sm=badbadbad.gif][sm=jawdrop.gif]

I got so excited, I forgot to post this part.

The exciting appearance of the Greenwood G3 package comes largely as a result of a seriously functional design. Our aerodynamics are designed to be felt at reasonable speeds. You don't have to drive at the redline to feel the change in your car's stabilty. Competition tested, the overwhelming effectiveness was proven on the T&R Racing #13 Greenwood-bodied Corvette which set track records at Daytona International Speedway back in 1982. The most refined aerodynamic body ever produced for the C3 Corvette is again available.
