    Corvette Envy

    I went out shooting in my mother's neighborhood recently - my step father is testing some DSLRs and needed some tips/comparisons/someone to shoot with/etc. They have some pretty rockin neighbors. After some shots of mom's dog, we ended up in their neighbor's garage with some über rare Vettes...


    The first, an amazing and super rare treat: a 1966 427/425hp convertible. This is the last convertible made in 1966 as documented by Nolan Adams and was also the last 425hp made in 1966. This car was built for Chevrolet Motor Division as a test mule and later sold to the public. Heater and radio delete with J-56, close ratio 4 speed, racing brakes, F-41 heavy duty suspension, side pipes, and knock off wheels. Truly a rare piece of Corvette history. This car has also been top flight certified by NCRS.








    A 1967 427/390hp COPO Coupe. They made 10 Copo Corvettes in 1967 and all were color variant cars. 3 were big blocks this car has a close ratio 4 speed, power brakes and rare head rest seats. Tank sheet and Protect-O-Plate certify this as a COPO.








    A 1968 427/400hp 2 top Roadster with tri power, power brakes, F-41 heavy duty suspension, leather interior, and am/fm radio. This car was built the last month of 1968 production, has been certified by NCRS and has awesome paperwork to document it's originality.

    A 1965 fuel injected convertible; purchased from the original owner. Full documentation and 38,000 original miles on the car. 771 fuelies made all 4 speeds in the last year of production for the fuel injected corvette until the modern era. Most of these were coupes with less than 100 roadsters made. Living history and protect-o-plate document the originality of this rare beast.






    The owner was on his way to Chicago to possibly purchase another rare Vette and had his brother's Vette in the side garage that he's fully restoring. I would love to bring my soft box or speedlight in and really spend some time photographing these cars. They are very special subjects! The owner was kind enough to invite me back when our schedules matched up, so hopefully you'll see more of these beauties!

    I couldn't leave out the mom's ZR1...

    My mom races. She has a S2000 SCCA car and within the past year sold her/my step dad's 2 black C6 Z06's & brought home this beautiful supercharged LS9 6.2L 2009 ZR1. This thing is so full of win.

    I plan to revisit this shoot, since it's easily accessible, so that I can take my time with it.







    The original; background blacked all the way in with no holes of light and burned the ground to match. I highlighted the top of the body some, as well as the wheels.


    A more touched and dodged version. The car is really not this light! But, I thought it looked fun & I like the extreme contrast.


    Thanks for looking

    Cty
