The first are those with plates that describe the car, like “ZRRR-1″ and “505HP Z06″ and then there are those that express the owner’s state of mind as in “LIFES GD” and “EZ LIVIN”. Corvette owners have no shortage of creativity which you’ll see on full display after the jump.

Corvette Central Kicks Off 1963 Split-Mod Restoration Project

Corvette Central and Chris Petris, the duo behind the C4 Cutaway Corvette, have teamed up again to bring together a real cool project called the “Split Mod”.

Instead of the traditional matching-numbers restoration, which would be somewhat difficult considering the car has no motor or transmission, the rebuild will result in the creation of a fun, drivable Midyear Corvette. The project is also going to be the subject of a book and so you can count on some great tips and advice offered along the way.
