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!
This 1964 Chevrolet Corvette visited the V8 Speed & Resto Shop for completion of various restoration items. On the list include some electrical rewiring, cosmetic updates, engine tuning, and overall drivability improvements. It’s also going to receive a whole new look thanks to custom paint and striping. We’re happy to help return this cool 350 4-speed powered ’64 Corvette back to the road!
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.
