Default 1965 Corvette Sting Ray

Saw this stunning old beauty at the ICE Shop when I went to get the ICE on my Jag sorted out.

Beautifully maintained, the car is a rare classic. I wonder what it is doing in an ICE shop, and I've been promised that I can take more pics and hopefully get a ride in it as the owner is a regular customer and Shahid the friendly mallu chap who runs the setup said he will ask the chap.

Apologies for the picture quality - I had to use my HTC phonecam.

Head over to Car Audio People on SZR. Meet Shahid, Faizal or Kutty.

Superb Steer!

Does anyone remember the red convertible of Mehmood? It was a similar model year, starred in Johnny Mera Naam (I think). Its now with a collector in Bombay.

Nice find Steer. Looks pretty well maintained and cared for.

Do bug the owner for a ride and tell us about it.
