  1. This nice Ferrari seems to be the inspiration of the C3 Corvette. Especially when viewing the side profile! Interesting... One could do alot worse!<!-- Signature -->

    I waouldnt put it past chevy. They took a lot of the lines of the 69 camaro from the mercedes gull wing sl, so maybe this was part of their insperation for the C3; not a bad car to copy from though.<!-- Signature -->
