Have just been told by previous owners wife that 'outlaw' had now seen the article and he "was wrapped" and thought it was "awesome"...Told her to tell me thanks for including the bit about Rob McAllister.

VETTE MAGAZINE PROPOSAL

Postby australi » Mon Sep 10, 2007 8:07 pm

...As per announcement:
http://www.australiancorvettesassociati ... 5f464fd038

Tony Rabbitte, from www.photographybyrabbitte.com - the photographer who shot my C3 for VETTE magazine, has asked me to do him a small favour, which I'm HONOURED to do! :

He's on the lookout for some more top quality modified Vettes for up coming issues. He's asked if there are any club or forum members who would have cars of a standard that would qualify.

Please email Tony directly via: info@rabbitte.com.au

Submissions would need to include a brief list of the mods and a few pics of the proposed car. I.e. front 3/4, rear 3/4, interior & motor. No need for pro quality pics, it's just so he can see what it looks like. Mobile phone pics are usually sufficient for this initial purpose. The proposed cars would need to be located between Canberra ACT, and south east Queensland.
:o :D

Sometimes I think VETTE mag does stories on 'original' 'Vettes too.
The yanks seem to be really fascinated with our RHD versions :-D

Very nice Steve.

Heaps of mods make it unique for sure.

Amazing previous owner parted with it after all that work.

What is the dash cluster taken from ? ...Looks familiar

Dash was fully custom made.
VDO speedo and ford instruments...That's why it probably looks familiar. :o

...Would like to change them around one day.
