59 Stingray Racer...

The 1959 Corvette StingRay Racer is 1,000 pounds lighter than a '60 production Vette. It has a 4.6-liter V-8 that produces 315hp. In 1960 the StingRay Racer was the winner of the SCCA National Championship. After it's time on the track, owner and GM Vice President of styling Bill mitchell had a passenger seat added. As you can tell, the 1963 Vette takes many of it's styling from the Racer.

Have a nice safe Friday!

When I think back a few years, I remember going out and playing all day and coming in when the street lights came on. We played war, we jumped stuff on our bikes, we built forts and had chestnut fights. We shot BB guns and rode minibikes. We rode in the back of trucks and station wagons with no seatbelts. Holy crap! Our toys had small parts that shot at your face when the time was up. 
Oh yeah, and our firworks blew shit up!

When we got older, we went to the movies, went to friends houses and had parties, went cruising, sometimes 8 to a car.

And we didn't die!

I really feel sorry for kids now days. They don't go outside and play, they watch TV, play video games and eat crap all day. Teens cant do anything because cruising is illegal, and if you get caught with a beer, you get thrown in jail. Not wearing a seatbelt? You get a ticket.

No wonder everyone is so pissed off...
