    I was so, SO excited for you Mike, for your getting that absolutely beyond gorgeous 1967 award winning convertible, and then you said it was not going to be yours. But the lucky new owner. Is that 1967 every beyond spectacular!!! Actually, when I thought during the first past that it was going to be yours, I was concerned about your plans to buy a C8. Whew, for you still get to do get your 2020 ME!

          I had a 1964 roadster. The main improvement after 64 was the replacement of drum brakes with non power assisted disc brakes. As for the tires, I think in 67 GM was still fitting Corvettes from the factory with 2 ply bias ply tires. American manufacturers were just starting to make radial tires, but they were not very good. They attempted to make them using the same clam shell molding methods, while Michelin and Pirelli were using segment mold technology. I used to fit my C2 with Pirelli radials, for the then outrageous price of $50 per tire. That was almost double the price of a premium American tire.

          The steering probably felt strange because, instead of rack and pinion, it used a recirculating ball system instead, same as GM used on all its other cars. Recirculating ball systems always had a little slop to them, but on a Corvette, it was less than normal.

          Another thing about C2 Corvettes, the tachometer red line on the instrument gave you a good indicator of what engine was installed. Base engines would usually by red lined at 5500 rpm or so, and the higher performance engines, such as with solid lifters, might be red lined as high as 6500.

          The C3 chassis was basically unchanged from the C2. So that design had a good long production run.
