I would never do that to a Vette! I just found that wackey old pic on the net it said Eckler did alot of experiments om Vettes at that time. Here is the other one where he put on a Datsun hatch.

Sportwagon

In the '70s there were a lot of these sportwagon conversions around. By that I mean you would see one often enough to not surprise you. As a matter of fact there was one over by where I work in a front yard all last summer on a '73. There were also several fastback and hatchback conversions available. All that seemed to dry up with the intro of the '78 body and a hinge kit to allow the rear glass to be opened. That kit was used later by GM on the '82 Collector's Edition. Got to remember that this was in the time of the van craze.

Hey Guys. the car is from a movie called " Corvette Summer " starring Mark Hamel {before he became Luke Sky Walker} and Annie Potts. Mike Yeager of Mid-America has the car in his collection. The movie is worth seeing if your a true corvette lover. This movie is one of many things that got me hooked on Corvettes.

Hey 75Corvette, I also have a copy of the movie -doesn't everyone??. I would probably go thru the same thing that Mark Hammil did in the movie if something happened like that to Vette

Greenwood Wagon

If you want to see the original Corvette Wagon check out the link below, it's the original prototype formerly owned by John Greenwood. Mike Guyette formerly of Shark Quarterly magazine owns it now and I believe it's for sale now. Mike also owns the Greenwood Turbo listed on this page. (see links at bottom of page)

1981 Corvette hatch back

We have a 1981 Corvette that has a hatch back on it and it does not appear to be an add on. I is perfectly mold with on attachments molding in. I can not find any fibreglass repair mends anywhere. I was told that before St. Louis stopped production it was experimenting with a few of the hatch back prior to the 1982 production , any help would be greatly appreciated.:w
