One of the ultimate goals of an automotive restoration is get the subject back to as close to factory condition as possible, and the best way to start that is with a numbers-matching car. Today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe Corvette is said to be just such a numerically-endowed example, but does its price match your expectations?
With its 80% Nice Price win and general fealty garnered, yesterday’s hot Honda-powered 1972 Celica proved that you can teach an old pony new tricks. That electric orange coupe demonstrated just what could be the end result of a vision, some mechanical aptitude, and a fat wallet. On the other hand, today’s 1970 Corvette Stingray is an example of where just such a project just might start.
