 Getting this thread back on track..Here's some vintage shots of the Vette when it was a Gasser..I just found out today that the car has extensive race history,the original owner/builder being none other than Chip Baney..Chip was a well known and feared competitor in Gas classes and Comp Eliminator back in the 60's/70's with his "Dancing Bear" Corvettes..This is the first of several Corvettes Chip raced..He sold the car in the early '70 to George Kratochvil,who's family I bought the car from...

Is your plan to build it back to the gasser look, that would be cool.

  Not sure what to do..The car is  an original fuelie car..It came with the FI unit...Which makes it way more valuble restored than as a racecar. :dunno: :Duh:

  Fulie Vettes restored are near 100K  or more..If Chip were more famous on a national level (like Grumpy Jenkins or Scotto/Blevins)it could be worth more but I don't think so..

So are you going to restore it or fix it up and drive it? Or flip it?
