It is a 1972 L88 Can Am Hatchback Corvette ( V.V. Cooke's/Jimmy Mayden Model ).
Literally One of it's kind. There were Two of these Vettes, but the other Vette has since been wrecked. Leaving my Vette as the last one out there.
Has a great history in the NASCAR and other various races throughout the States. I have Awards, Plaques and Trophies stored with the car.
Has a land speed record of 227 mph. Derby roll bars. NASCAR Braking.
Everyone that I have shown it to practically will pay me to let them drool on it. I am serious, no jokes here.
I am not bragging. I am merely curious about this car that I have inherited from my beloved Father, Richard D. Croke, R.I.P.
It has been at a Storage Facility Out of State in safe keeping until I feel the urge to either play or sell.
