It’s time for Throwback Thursday where we feature vintage photos of Corvettes. Here’s a picture of two classic Corvettes drifting around a corner of a race track.
For those of you who think that the sport of drifting is relatively new, let this photo set you straight.
The black Corvette is a 1957 fuelie. Check out the custom mods including the roll bar behind the driver and a windshield that is either cut way down or is non-existent. His number is “283” which corresponds to the 283 ci V8 in the ’57. Mobil 1’s “Pegasus” is also painted on the door suggesting the car may have been sponsored. Behind it is most likely a 1956 or ’57 with a hartop.
