Retro-design is all the rage in the automobile industry with new models borrowing design cues from legends past merging classic design with modern technology. While the Corvette has evolved tremendously in technology over its 50+ years, it has not followed the more obvious retro-styling of the Camaro, Mustang, or the Challenger.
There was a time when the idea of modifying or "hot-rodding" a Corvette was inconceivable - as these time capsules should be preserved. Granted, there are rare original models that do deserve this badge of honor and NCRS has done a wonderful job in this respect. However, evolution in technology has created a new focus on merging the best in retro-design of the older Corvettes with the modern technology of today.
Not only are the available aftermarket bodies better (some manufacturers offer complete carbon fiber for example), the use of modern suspension systems, fuel injected crate engines such as LS3/7, modern transmissions, and braking systems provide for a smoother and safer ride. It is quite literally the best of both worlds. The VetteRodder now can create a ride that will allow them to comfortably take them from a weekend cruiser to a powerful and unique daily driver with all the conveniences of the modern automobile.
While the cost of entry is not for the faint of heart - some reaching well into the hundreds of thousands of dollars, the RestoMods are commanding thousands of dollars MORE than restored original counterparts. Therefore, if executed properly, not only will the owner have a unique ride, but a long term investment as well.
