Car of the Day 10/5/18

Today’s car of the day is this ’71 Corvette Stingray that Jimmie Johnson helped modify, and I saw it at the 2018 Barrett-Jackson Auction in Palm Beach. It’s from the C3 generation, which was made between 1968 and 1982. This one was modified to have a 6.2 liter LT1 V8, which produces 460 horsepower and 465 pound-feet of torque. The transmission of this one is a 6-speed manual.
