The newest entries are at the top.
Car #1: 1980 Corvette
Owner: Mike Wahl – Maryland
Description: Here is our our stock 1980 Corvette [8TY4SPD] and its TRUNK.
It is equipped with the OE ZAM L48 engine option, which we like for its low RPM torque, coupled to the RPO code MM4 4-speed manual trans [5726 produced]. As can be seen it has the RPO code 19 black exterior [7250 produced], with the not seen RPO code 12C oyster cloth interior option [1808 produced] and RPO FE7 gymkhana suspension [9907 produced].
We previously had a 1973 L82 4-speed, we are C3 enthusiasts, and were always challenged with space limitations when traveling. When we purchased our 1980, my wife said “More luggage space!” And I said “Yea, A Lot More!” ….. the TRUNK; no RPO code for this option!
We live on the eastern shore of Maryland, and the picture submitted was taken as we approached Devil’s Tower, WY, seen in the background, during our northern plain states cross-country trip to Oregon. The TRUNK has been a blessing, a motorcycle luggage trailer with 25 cu. ft. of space. We have traveled all over, “Seeing The USA In Our Chevrolet”, Corvette that is.

Car #2: 2014 C7 Z51 Stingray
Owner: Steve G, Kansas City, MO. Entered 11-26-17
Description: I call this my, “Carbon Fiber Edition” Stingray. It is #1445 off the line for the C7 era. I am a huge Carbon Fiber proponent. Almost everything that was done in Carbon Flash (black metallic) from the factory is now done in Carbon Fiber. There are about $33,000 in aftermarket add-on’s on this Corvette! So the majority of the interior, exterior and engine bay is done in Carbon Fiber. This car is the first C7 to ever have red seat belts. I know this because I got these before red seat belts became a factory option!
(NICE carbon fiber rear splitter, Steve! – Scott)
