    Great post Josh. We sometimes forget these old sports cars used to be raced!

    Yes, excellent post. Love that it still has some drivability with those old bias plys on it. Still no thoughts on changing them out for radials?

    Oh, and *vain.

    It'd be interesting to get an old racer to join them at the track, one who raced the Corvette back then. I bet they might have some good techniques to show off!

    "It's worth noting that by today's standards the Stingray's reflexes are comical, but in 1966 this was cutting-edge control"

    Compared to Euro sports cars of its era?

    p.s.I've tank slappered a moto but never a car! On a moto it is terrifying and painful (1997 Suzuki TL1000S)

    Terrific write-up. I have no issue whatsoever admitting that I do not possess enough skill to drive this car with any authority, and that's with about a half million kilometers under my belt.

    Why not include some .wav files so we too can hear some of the noise that you frequently describe?
