when you look back on the history of corvettes, every generation has their share of cars that were driven hard and put up wet, this is why the NCRS provides owners (those that want it) a way of researching their cars to get them in factory correct condition. it certainly isn't everyone's cup of tea, but the manuals and pamphlets the NCRS provides are invaluable tools in under taking such a task. look how the mid-year corvettes have increased in value, when i think about it, there was a time they couldn't give them away!! as the new ones always came with better options more power ect. ect. it wasn't until say, 1972, when the government started to get involved with the insurance companies and poking their noses into the auto industry that horse power ratings started to decline and other "safety" features were absolutely mandated by the fed. (and you thought 2008-09 was something new as far as government intervention?) once the engines were choked down, the cars made more crash proof, the older cars with all the clean powerplants and muscle started to increase in value. i look around today and see alot of older stingrays that are factory fresh and alot of it is because of the NCRS! i remember growing up in the 60's and seeing numerous mid year vettes with triple tail lights, glassed fender flares, hoods cut and blowers sticking through! you get the idea, the new generation are seeing their share of modifications as well and in fact, just about every generation has. but the NCRS is here to help those that want to, with the guidance and standards to bring their cars back into factory specifications. a corvette is only "new" once in it's life but thanks to dedcated hobbyists, and the NCRS alot of these special cars are preserved in factory trim for people to enjoy. i always enjoy seeing a tastefull modification and personalization of a corvette but i also appreciate a bone stock example as well!!! to each his own as they say, but the untouched survivors and those brought back to factory specs are certainly worth a special place in automotive history!
