Corvette C3 is a sports car produced by the Chevrolet division of General Motors for the 1968 through 1982 model years. It is the third generation of the Chevrolet Corvette and also the second generation of the Corvette Sting Ray. Engines and chassis components were mostly carried over from the C2 while the body and interior were redesigned. It set new sales records with 53,807 produced for the 1979 model year.
Last Saturday, this Corvette C3 was parked in the neighbor's driveway. Since I hadn't seen it before and have not seen it since, I am assuming it belonged to someone who was visiting. An educated guess on the model year is 1972.
Corvette C3 General Motors'un Chevrolet bölümü tarafından 1968 ile 1982 model yılları boyunca üretilen bir spor otomobildi. Bu Chevrolet Corvettein üçüncü nesli ve aynı zamanda Corvette Sting Rayin ikinci nesliydi. Gövde ve iç yeniden tasarlanmış ise de motor ve şasi parçaları çoğunlukla C2den devam etmiştir. 1979 model yılı için 53.807 üretilerek yeni satış rekorları kırmıştı.
Geçen Cumartesi günü, bu Corvette C3 komşunun evinin önüne park edilmişti. Daha önce ve o zamandan beri görmemiş olduğum için ben onu ziyaret eden birine ait olduğunu varsayıyorum. Model yılı ile ilgili öğrenimli tahmin 1972'dir.

You're capturing well this scene by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see Corvette C3 with streamline beauty and red body. It looks like excellent sports car, surely. It matches well with a comfortable suburban residence and the environment surrounded by green in back.

Marvelous pic. of the Corvette from the 70th, in stunning red.
Even the grass is in fabulous green to contrast - we have a say in Hebrew, that the neighbour grass is always greener...
No offence my friend.
Have a nice Friday,

a fascinating car, full of nerve and style. A very interesting visit to your neighbourhood, that provided a lovely setting for your picture. I like very much the way you've placed the Corvette in the frame surrounding it with interesting but not distracting context. Framing, depth and clarity are excellent too. The way you've treated the lighting and colours is lovely and, in my opinion, has led to a picture that's more of a confident artistic interpretation than a strict realistic depiction. Fine work, congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,
PS The window of my photo belongs to the wall of a house, not a restaurant. Most restaurants on Leros are even closer to the sea:)

Fine neighborhood scene for the up front corvette, which is one of the most popular rods in California.
Good color saturation.
Ironically I am visiting SoCal now and tomorrow there is a classical car show on Ventura's Main Street. I hope to get some interesting images.
My car is not classical, but I really enjoy its performance - A Chrysler 300 with a Hemi engine.
Have a great weekend,
