The NCRS certainly has an important function and place in the Corvette hobby and the information available is invaluable, and, even they say "a Corvette is only new once in it's life" now,that being said, more and more I'm liking what I see in the old body with new technologies being implemented, be it an early C-2 that converts to 4 wheel disc brakes or a C-3 with a LS-7 engine swap (see Scott's 69Shark LS-7 project IN THE DETAILED PROJECTS SECTION)I mean to truly drive and enjoy these cars why not?? why not take advantage of ALL the upgrades available. technology has certainly come a long, long way so if you're one to enjoy and drive your Classic Corvette why not make it the most economical, powerful, best handling car you can?? let's just rework those letters a bit NCRS=Not Correctly Restored Stingray!!!!

Looks like the new vetts Z06 are having some big problems with overheating. I would be pissed off if I spent over 100K & couldn't use the car to it's potential. Think I'll just stick to my reliable &  fun c-3's Cool

well, I think it's great what people are doing to enhance the drive ability of these old cars and I am a staunch NCRS (the original acronym) in that when I shopped for the Yellow 1977 the car Alan currently owns I was looking for bone stock in as original condition as possible I was absolutely amazed that VIN 0242 was in such great and original shape when I bought it back in 2004,it had 4 previous owners and they all liked the car enough to keep it in it's original condition. in doing my research I discovered the original owner had installed a power antenna and also had the fenders updated to include the cross flag emblems, other than that, the car was as she rolled off the line in St. Louis in August of 1976!! it would be cool if I could swing a deal with Alan in  the next few years and buy it back!

Ever since I rebuilt the 77 frt end it drives like new, starts like it has FI. I've had it for sale on ebay for the last few weeks ..had an offer of 14K, but that's to low for a car like this. I'm patient so we might yet make a deal Chris. This car would be pretty easy to make stock again & I do have the OEM exhaust thanks to Binnie that will go with it along with the OEM seats.
