The Art of Miroslav Porochnavy

It all started with a Facebook post to the C3 Corvette Owners forum I'm a member of.

Miroslav, a talented automotive artist in Humenné, Slovakia, posted a beautifully executed pencil and marker drawing of a C3 to show forum members his artistic abilities (see image below). Suspecting that he would get tons of requests in the next couple of days, I immediately sent him a friend's request followed by an inquiry via Messenger, to which he replied immediately.

After a few messages back and forth I commissioned Miroslav to capture my 1976 Corvette Stingray on paper.

Pace Car Air Dam For My 76 Vette | Part 1

For the model year 1978, the Corvette Indy Pace Car edition featured a distinctive front air dam that not only gave the car a more aggressive look but also helped improve its drag coefficient.

In addition to the front air dam, the car also featured a "duck tail" style rear spoiler, also made out of urethane.

But for the 1976 Stingray, those accessories were not available and my car featured a functional chin air dam whose mission was to help direct air to the front of the radiator. Functional, yes. Sexy, definitely not.

Hello buys and girls. It's time for another installment of "All Corvettes are Red."

These are photos of red C3s I happen to run across during my Internet travels, and I like to share them here for everyone's enjoyment. 

And if you would like your third generation Corvette immortalized here, regardless of color, please email me a good, clear, large JPEG of your pride and joy, and I will include it in an upcoming post.
