This deep blue 1977 Chevrolet Corvette is in for a new driveline including an LS3 V8, a Tremec TKX 5-Speed manual transmission, and more. These Corvettes look cool and handle well, but the often anaemic, low-compression “smog motors” from the mid 1970s leave much to be desired in the performance department. The Chevrolet Performance LS3 430 HP crate engine will fix all that, and the Tremec TKX is designed for high RPM shifting. It’s going to be a lot more fun when it’s finished!

This unbelievable 1994 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 shows a mere 2700+ miles on the odometer, but nearly 30 years have dulled the shine on this LT5-powered jewel. The V8 Speed and Resto Shop team was tasked with a full show-car detail, including the underside, and topped it off with a paint correction and ceramic treatment for a super luxurious shine. You’ll be able to see this one in person at the 2022 Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals Show in Chicago!

Performance automotive enthusiasts are always concerned about new legislation designed to restrict the freedoms of car owners, and in this episode of the V8 Radio Podcast, Kevin Oeste and Mike “Q-Ball” Clarke take a look at a recent New York law affecting exhaust modifications.    Thanks to SEMA for the info.  They also chat about the 2025 “Zora” Corvette, a 1000HP, 1000 ft. lbs. gasoline / electric hybrid that might be the swan’s song of the C8.  There is also an update on the new Bonneville Up To Speed podcast!   The Automotive Trivia is present as always, along with a few laughs and other bits of car enthusiast knowledge (and nonsense) on the V8 Radio Podcast!

We all rely on electronic fuel injection systems for reliable performance today, but would you believe that the Shelby team was experimenting with the technology back in 1968?  Pete Disher brought out this unbelievably rare 1968 Shelby GT500 engineering test vehicle that was equipped with a 428 Cobra Jet engine (rather than the 428 Police Interceptor as standard) and a Conelec Electronic Fuel Injection system as well.    It’s an amazing piece of history that was on display at the 2017 Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals in Rosemont, Illinois.
