Radical 1965 Corvette Road Racer Video Feature V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - This awesome 1965 Corvette built by the team at Performance Restorations in Mundelien, IL, was originally going to be a show car, but builder Brent Jarvis has been bitten by the road race bug. The result is a show quality car that sports a complete road race driveline and chassis, complete with a 900 horsepower all-aluminum big block Chevy engine, a clutchless 5-speed manual trans, huge brakes, and more. The cosmic paint scheme is old-school candy apple red over silver flake. Shot at the 2010 Optima Ultimate Street Car Invitational event.

Roadster Shop RSC1 Corvette OUSCI Track Thrash V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - The Roadster Shop builds some killer cars, and they were recently out beating up one of their most amazing creations, the RSC1 Corvette. Starting life as a 1962 Corvette, the Roadster Shop crew transformed every piece of this car into a slick high-tech version of the timeless C1 Corvette. Starting with a complete new RS Performance chassis, they added a GM LS7 engine, Kinsler EFI, giant brakes, and all the right parts to make it stop, go, and turn. Then they reworked every panel on the car, added a custom interior, and started winning awards. We think the best part is that this car gets driven hard on road course and autocross tracks. This interview was shot at the 2009 Optima Ultimate Street Car Invitational, and is part of an upcoming DVD of the event.
