New this year was placing all eligible cars in each category inside the Celeste Center, host site for the awards ceremony. That’s where the top five finalists in both divisions were announced to the crowd, then driven to the stage for the official ceremonies.

1959 Corvette Restomod to Cross the Block at Mecum's Seattle Auction

There are few limitations in the world of restomods, the only boundaries being set by the tastes and the abilities of individual constructors. Corvette restomods are typical of the genre in that many are finished in bright, sometimes audacious colors that, while drawing attention to the vehicle, may detract from its overall appearance. The same can be said of restomod interiors and wheels. The interior may be so modified that all connection with the heritage of the original vehicle is lost and the rims have so much bling that they actually draw attention away from the car design rather than complementing it.

[VIDEO] Late Model Racecraft Restomods a 1958 Corvette with an LS7 V8

There is just something that excites us when we see a well-done Corvette restomod. Some builds like to keep the stock look of the exterior while dropping in a monster V8 under the hood. We’ll this restomod built by the pros at Late Model Racecraft isn’t one of those.

If you were to pull up next to this matte-black 1958 Corvette roadster, you would notice right away there is something special going on there. And when that stoplight turns green and the restomod roars to life and leaves you all slack-jawed while staring at the disappearing taillights, you’ll wonder if that C1 was built just to haunt your dreams.

1967 Corvette Restomod with C7 Stingray's LT1 Engine will Star at Mecum's Indy Auction

For some folks, the 1967 Corvette as the last year for the C2 still represents the pinnacle for America’s Sports Car.

Others would argue that the seventh-generation Stingray is right up there with the best, too.

Now comes a very special 1967 Corvette convertible that combines the greatest things about each of these two special Corvette generations.

The Ridetech 1972 Corvette Coupe: From Stock to Fire-Breathing Restomod in 48 Hours

Way back in 2011 the folks at Ridetech took a stock first generation Camaro and, with the help of several aftermarket manufacturers and several of their friends, made it into a Camaro restomod in 48 hours. Now, after everyone associated with that project has caught up on their sleep and has forgotten what sleep deprivation feels like, they are going to do it again—only this time with a stock 1972 Corvette.

Check out this cool video of a 1964 Corvette Restomod that was submitted by a reader. His dad’s Corvette was recently featured in Super Chevy Magazine:

The idea of this video was derived from Rob at Underground Racing. Video is of my fathers 1964 Corvette Stingray, which has been referred to as “Stepchild’s Revenge.” It made the cover of the December issue of Vette Magazine. This was made for my video production class at school. I have a passion for making car videos and hopefully one day work for a big automobile corporation.

We assume the “stepchild” in the title refers to the nickname many have given the 1964 Corvette. With an LS7 under the hood, we see how this midyear model dishes out its revenge! Thanks for sharing Kyle and great job on the video!
