    Default Nostalgic 69 stingray

    Hey guys, I'm new to the forum. I'm a car enthusiast of all makes, years and models. Currently own a 66 mustang convertible and last year I acquired a 69 stingray. The Stingray belonged to a gentleman who owned the vehicle for over 40 years. The car has had many modifications and is not at all stock, but in my view its done right and represents a true classic car from that era. All the work was done over a 40 year period and the I think the work speaks for itself. I can't take any credit for the work, but I'd like for all of you to see and appreciate the work this gentleman has put into this car which I now have the privilege to own. Let me know what you think, the model... standing next to the car is my lady who also has high consideration and loves automobiles. More pics will come soon. Thanks.

    Thanks marcel, the stripe theme was something taken from vettes back in the late 60s early 70s. There was a limited vette that came with a striping similar to the one on my vette and that is why it was chosen.

    I like almost all cars but I am partial to Vettes. Yours is a stunning '69. Welcome to the forum.

    You would be referring to the Baldwin-Motion Vettes? Looks like the builder of that car was going for the same look I am on my '69 Camaro (see garage). The stripe for mine I did as a Phase III. I'll be ditching the hood scoop in favor of the L88 hood and forced air induction this winter. The only thing I'm not doing is the leg burners (which are bad a** BTW) since it's a dedicated race car. Your car, sir, gets mucho props from this guy.
