    .
    Starting off with this one:

    I believe someone named Myron Scott won a contest to name the Corvette. It was named after the fast attack ships used in WW2 by the US Navy but those were actually named after small, fast and maneuverable ships used in the French Navy during the 1600's. Myron also created the American Soap Box Derby. (All info that is in my History of the Corvette book that I checked last night).

          Laguna Gray was a 1970 color. My 70 coupe is Bridgehampton Blue so I know a little about that year.

            Not using your “Corvette Black Book” as you resource, how many C2 Z06’s were a convertible?

                  That is the “seat limiting-rearward-pressure” switch.

                            I had a thought you knew the answer ..
                            Here's my C7 w/o most of the interior out for installing the Dynamat. The first time was a weekend project , the second time I had it done in one day . My wife used the Corvette after we both looked and no rain showing in the area . The targa top was on my garage floor because I was cleaning out the back of the car. Well , an hour or so later she called and said "(bad word) IT'S RAINING" . She came home, still no rain here, then I got to take the interior out again . NEVER leave your top at home ... LoL ...

                              I did exactly the same thing to my C7; that is how I learned of this pressure switch.

                              BTW, below is the “before” picture. The “after picture is nearly identical to the above one.
