This is weird,,,,just lastnight in work the 2nd shift mechanic was down the shore over the week end looking at boats for sale,at 1 place he claims there is a mako just sitting there with a inch of dust on it
He had a mid-year in the shop when he first started out some twenty-five years ago, that the owner wanted all kinds of gaudy stuff done to it. The shop owner didn't want people to even see it when it was at his shop so he kept it covered.
As soon as the guy finished it, the first issue of Vette (or Corvette Fever or another one of the well-known Corvette rags) had it as a feature car and what do you know but the guy had the shop owner's name emblazoned right across the page for all the world to see! The last thing he needed when first starting out in the business is a gaudy Corvette to your credit. :L At least the guy who owned it wanted to spread the word about a good, reputable Corvette shop. :eyerole
This one wins first prize today as the ugliest Vette I've seen.
