When Life Hands You Cracked Fiberglass, Break Out The Welder And Make Lemonade

1984 Chevrolet Corvette

There are several companies building no-frills track toys with a visible tubular frame, such as the Miata-based Exocet. It’s a great way to avoid dealing with bodywork, and a lightweight toy results.

The builder of this Corvette clearly had similar ideas, and fitted a rollcage to the frame of his C4. Incidentally, we wonder if this cage originally saw duty in a NASCAR racer – the construction seems similar, and as the seller is in Charlotte, it’s not out of the question.

It’s certainly an unusual way of building a track rat, and not altogether attractive. But it should prove cheap and easy to work on, with no pesky fenders in the way of wrenching.

It’s on eBay in Charlotte with reserve not yet met.
