Kindigit Designs of Bitchin Rides and Corvette Mike have collaborated to bring you the Coolest of Bitchin Rides — a series dedicated to the ultimate resto-mods. The last of a true breed of combustion engines purpose-built by Lingenfelter, developing enough horsepower to rip the steel cords right off these Michelins.

This combination of a very limited, select edition of carbon fiber bodies mated to Roadster Shop chassis culminated into something very special. The first, from scratch, retro look 1953 Corvette Roadster with all the trick goodies of modern-day Sportage transportation with a flare to dare you not to stare.

#2 — 1967 L89 Coupe

How rare is rare? General Motors only built 16 of these fascinating cars in 1967. This car, VIN 122908, was built 32 cars from the end of production on the last day of 1967. It was delivered to Cochran and Celli, California’s oldest Chevrolet dealer, on July 28, 1967. It was one of two produced for California with the K19 Smog equipment and sold to its original owner, Donald Stankovsky of Berkeley, CA, now of Houston, Texas. The car found its way through several owners until it arrived at Chris Marcom’s Southwest Corvette Collection in Frederick, Oklahoma. Through the guidance of Jim Purvis, the vehicle was purchased by its then current owner in Novem­ber of 1987 and sent to Naber Brothers in Houston for a complete body-off restoration. Later entered Larry M., an astute and well-known car collector who carefully stored it in a climate-controlled car barn with many of its stable mates. After many attempts and nearly 29 years later, a deal was finally struck, and it changed hands again to the Publisher of Thundering Thursday, Corvette Mike Vietro. Also the recent recipient of a Top Flight award two weeks ago in Frisco, Texas, at the NCRS Regional Meet.

At the moment of this writing this California original L89 is heading back to Southern California for the first time since the mid 70’s.

Some Random Thoughts

There is no sunrise so beautiful that it is worth waking me up to see it.

You know you’ve reached middle age when you’re cautioned to slow down by your doctor, instead of by the police.

I’m not insane. My mother had me tested.



I recently had a great experience buying a vintage Corvette from Corvette Mike. I talked with Jeff Romm who was a pleasure to deal with and very professional in handling my transaction from the very start until my car was delivered to me two weeks later. There are so many details to cover in buying a vintage Corvette. Jeff never rushed me while making himself available at all times and followed thru on all of my questions and always responded to my emails or phone calls in a timely manner. I wired the money for payment and the level of service never dropped off in handling the many details regarding title paperwork and arranging for transport etc. I offer a Big thanks to Corvette Mike and Jeff Romm for a job well done.

As an out of state buyer looking for a very specific Corvette I’m pleased to say that Corvette Mike’s was everything I could ask for. Troy handled the entire process, promptly and professionally responding to my numerous inquiries. I’m now the happy and satisfied owner of a 1971 Stingray that was delivered and represented exactly what was promised. Thank you Troy and Corvette Mike’s!

I wish I had known about Corvette Mike before I took my 69 Corvette elsewhere for repair/restoration work. The other shop did an okay job on the routine stuff, but they were unable to resolve some of the more difficult problems with my car. Then I found out about Corvette Mike. They were able not only to solve those problems, but to correct some issues with regard to the previous repairs that had been made. The people who work at Corvette Mike are cordial, they keep you informed about your vehicle, and they know what they are doing. They are used to dealing with extremely expensive vintage Corvettes, so you can be sure your car is in good hands. They go out of their way to make sure your vehicle is up to spec, and running the way it’s supposed to. They don’t work cheap, but their prices are reasonable, considering the level of expertise of their staff, and you get what you pay for, so if you are particular about your car, and want the job done right, this is the place to go. For me it’s about a one hundred mile round trip, but worth every mile.

Thanks, Corvette Mike!
