Thanks for all the time you spent posting your response. But, did you read this article that I posted from a 40-year-old magazine? It not only has facts, it has opinion, personal experience, step-by-step restoration, documentation of transactions and a whole lot more. What is your response to this article?

As nice as the Heritage Centre is, and it clearly is helpful on a superficial level, it certainly doesn't tell anywhere near the whole story. For example, there is no mention of the World's first Corvette on the Heritage site, never mind all the first-hand information included about it here. If people don't open this thread, they'll likely never know.

Hi 67heaven

Yes I did read that write-up and have seen it before
Yes the GM Heritage Center does not show the EX-122 has but my mentioning the center
there is a ton of free information of many of the Corvettes such as
1961 Mako Shark or 1969 Manta Ray Concept
and I would think people would like to download images and tech information of Corvettes they own
