At 12:38 it shows the Weber carburetor installed and what looks like a 3D printed adapter to connect to the air filter box outlet tubing. Lots of great information Jay! Thanks.

Thanks to Jay for doing a car I actually own! I bought a '99 C5 "Hardtop" in pewter metallic new in 1998 for $43k (no negotiating either). I still have it and have logged about 70k on the clock. The hardtop is sexier than the targa/hatchback but the trunk is more cramped with a bit less cargo area. My car has been very reliable except that Delco ac compressors seem to only last about six years before the seals start to leak. The window regulators are pretty cheap and will fail after about ten years but are easy to install. The plastic headlight gears break but you can now get bronze in the aftermarket. Some mentally challenged individual located the engine control module and main wiring harness directly under the battery so it's good Jay has a gel battery installed. There is such a huge internet community for the C5 that I don't even start to troubleshoot problems before doing a symptom search on corvette forum. I can almost always diagnose the problem and order parts without even touching the car! Try doing that with your Lamborghini! You can't beat taking a C5 on a road trip. They slip through the air and sip gas being geared for the now ubiquitous 85mph cruising speeds on rural interstates. (Recall in 1998 everything was 55mph and 65 would get you in trouble! When new 6th gear was kind of useless.) If your thinking about a C5 get one now while there are still some good ones at affordable prices. The hardtops are really rare but take your time and you'll find a good one.

Oddly it sounds like a 4 cylinder when cruising down the road. I had a 1981 Cadillac Seville with the 6.0L 8-6-4 variable displacement engine and it also sounded like Jay's 1999 Vette. Did the 1999 Vette come with cylinder deactivation?

I had a 2000 with the same color and interior as this one, just better wheels (thank goodness, those wagon wheels are not my favorite). Had the Z51 package too. Thing got an easy 30 mpg on the hwy and leg room for days. I'm 6'2" and could move the seat back so far I couldn't press the clutch in all the way. Miss that car a lot.

I am a huge fan of the second generation even thought I was born in 82, but the 57 Corvette looks sweet. I get the point that the Corvette later got to much bling bling chrome. Sometimes understatement just looks better ;). I got the same opinion. Thanks for sharing :).

Im not sure youve heard this before, but the story i heard from friends in the EAA. Said the corvair engine was originally designed for the military as a bid to build Helicopter engines. GM lost the bid against Bell helicopter. Then the enginneers decided to complete with VW so as not to waste the effort to date.

I sold my 75, the year this came out, still miss it (70s vettes are seen differently in the UK btw) Despite the performance difference, I would take a 61, or 67 or a 53 over a 99.

Our Chevy Volt has a gas engine that runs an electric generator that similarly powers the car but uses batteries to store energy. It's amazing to see a vehicle from the early 1900's that pioneered the same technology minus the battery storage. I grew up in the Antique Car Club of America but never heard of this car before.

Thank you Jay for saving something so unique. A DIY from "Mother Earth" Mag. many years ago was build your own electric car with a diesel generator for range. I similar idea but 50 years after this design. Now you can buy or build a sailboat with an electric drive with regen. Add solar and/or wind generator and you can go anywhere on the ocean with no fuel used.

Those C5s are well engineered cars, except for the passenger compartment. Drivers that are tall, well-fed Midwesterners with bad knees won’t enjoy getting in and out. But once you’re in, you don’t want to get out!!

So cool to see Jay extol the virtues of the great engineering in the C5. Bullet-proof reliability, cheap to run, exactly what America can build when the engineers and car guys make it happen. LS engines will easily go 3-400K miles with minimum attention in everything from Suburbans to Corvettes.

Love the uniqueness of this. Like a futuristic VW Bus. I can definitely see a future in this company as we've all moved to subscription based services. If the price is right, I wouldn't mind having a subscription on my everyday car. The freedom of being able to jump in and out of a car is nice.

Absolutely fascinating...the Brits did so well developing automobiles, trains and airplanes. Great mechanical engineers and they designed for longevity, power and style 👏🏻👏🏻. That engine is amazing and I wonder if any other automobile company designed/ manufactured a similar power plant ? Another great restoration and well presented...only thing missing was a lady in sequins and ostrich plumes in the back seat.

I have always loved the 1958 and 1959 Lincolns. I believe these were the first unibodies of Ford and they had issues with them due to mass/length of this vehicle.. I do love these designs .
