Corvette

My dad is lookin at a 98 vette, in the picture it has the Z06 style side scoop, but according to his Vette magazine model and price guide chevy didn't make a Z06 that year? any ideas about this mysterious scoop? you think some idioit just put it on for the hell of it? Maybe the car's year is mismarked?

Re: Corvette

someone put it on, the Z came out in 2001 unless they mismarked it that bad but I don't think so.

Re: Corvette

Probably a FRC (fixed roof coupe) version. I believe it was a slightly less expensive version of the regular coupe and then was turned into the z06 in later years

Re: Corvette

they only made the FRC in 1999 not 1998~ as far as I know at least since 1999 was the new body style right?

Re: Corvette

Somebody probably added it, later. You want to post, or link, the pictures? I know a thing or two about Corvettes.

Re: Corvette

99 FRC's are nice cars to get if your dad can find one of those (coupe like Z06)

Ok, I had to do some googl'ing and you are correct sir! The C5 started in '97, but the FRC option was first available in '99. If it is a '98, then it would have to be a hatchback. I should have read more carefully. I assumed the OP meant that it looked like the z06 bodystyle.

Re: Corvette

Define a good automotive.

One that is based around the ford mustang but is still quality enough that u can post a thread asking about a corvette and get good information and not a bunch of bs replays.

Re: Corvette

A lot of people pick up FRC vette's if they are gonna mod them a lot as its cheaper in the end vs buying a Z06
