Welcome to Vetkrazy's Korvette Korral.

Sue and I began collecting Corvettes about fifteen years ago. At this time we have four and are expecting soon!
In fact,if you return in October you can see the latest addition to the Korral!

Our Cars

We located our 1958 Regal Tourguise Roadster in St. Louis about 5 years ago. It has a NOM 327 with a 4 speed and both tops. It has been a favorite of the homecoming courts at the local area football games in the fall. It has also transported many area queens in local parades.
Our 1963 Split Window Coupe is in the final stages of a body off restoration. It is Sebring Silver, a numbers correct 327 and 4 speed.
Since we both enjoy autocross we purchased a 1993 40th Anniversary Coupe. This Vet is equiped with a 6 speed and FX3 suspension. On race day it wears Khumo race tires.
Our forth car is a 1998 Indy 500 Pace Car Replica. If you want to get noticed try driving something purple and yellow! We have a wonderful time showing it off at car shows and cruise ins.
We hope to soon see a fifth addition to the korral. I have been searching for a 1969 427/400 convertible.


Well, as you can see on the next page I finally found that elusive big block. I located an original unrestored L-68 with 4 speed and F-41 heavy duty suspension. The car is no frills just big block torque!

Also you can see fron the picture page that the 63 is back home. Unfortunatly the shop doing the work turned out to be a mid year chop shop! Jerry Pings of Yuma cut up and ruined 6 mid years. At this time the case is in the hands of the local police.


January 2004: Well, the new years is here and I can close the saga of my 63. My insurance settled up and I sold the "hulk" to someone who plans to restore. I wish them luck as I would like to see the car back on the road again.

I spent the holiday season on the internet searching for another 63. Finally got luck and found a Sebring Silver 340 horse car in Conneticut. Took nearly a month to have it shipped as the worst snow storm in 25 years attacked the east coast. It finally arrived 3 weeks ago. Like all old cars it needs some work, but it is pure joy having a split window to drive again.



Keeping Your Car Cool

Did you know that in 95 degree heat, the air in your car reaches approximately 146 degrees and the steering wheel can reach 158 degrees? So what can you do about it? First, you can tint your car windows. Clear glass magnifies the sun and intensifies the heat. If that's too expensive, buy manual sunshades. They come in cheap cardboard or reflective material. You can also buy shades for the back side windows where your kids are. To avoid hot steering wheels, put a towel over the wheel to absorb sun while your car sits.

Washing and Waxing Tips

Most cars now come with a clearcoat finish, which tricks owners into thinking they don't need wax. Actually, you should wax your car 3-4 times a year. Most manufacturers also recommend washing your car once a week. Remember to start washing your car only when the car's surface is cool and only after rinsing the entire car. Rub gently, one section at a time, and use specific car wash products--never household cleaners. After rinsing your car well, dry it with a soft, clean cloth.
