This seems to be a customer wandering around RCR’s shop.

Who knows, the way the internet is today and things going viral, this young man could end up with his own show.
but what he won`t have is a Greenwood Corvette...nothing about it is Greenwood

Well, he’s a young guy, just trying to get monetized on YouTube so I won’t get too critical. I think the guy selling it “promoted” it up a bit.

He works for a Corvette shop, so it might eventually be complete.

with that wide body, Wilwoods and a 5-link that car will not be racing with all the production/frame based Corvettes, Camaros, Mustangs, etc. it will be racing with current era Trans-Am cars in the wings and slicks class where he will be running so far behind the pack it will be sad....rebody it as a 69 OK, but as he is doing it is a waste of time..I`ll add nothing super trick about polished rear spindles (everyone does it) and his rare 5-link is an early RPF (Bill Riley) as sold by Guldstrand...$500 worth of used up junk for $5000, that casey putch is quite the flim flam salesman.

LOL . I only linked a couple as I knew it would be controversial!

Interesting points that you made.

I cut cable 8 years ago, so Netflix and YouTube are my “TV.” When there is something corvette related (or car related) that is a bit interesting, I drop it here.

This is the last forum I post on anymore.

I think I have responded to one thread in the last 18mos at CF and it was one I started, some poser posted he was buying the original Minilite wheels off my former race car...funny I posted I own those wheels and am not negotiating with anyone.

Saw that chassis setup at Goodguys in 2017. Looks like nice stuff and pretty much a bolt on.

Looks nice. I think mfain used some of their components, so we’ll get some trust worthy feedback.

If you hate Elvis, turn down the volume. Otherwise pretty good. Check out the plastic vented rear windows in the restored car.

I’m sure there are others. The TFS guy just buys pie pieces and welds them up as he goes.
