Dave's comments:

Not surprising the Godfather of 70s show rods, Tom Daniel, chose the Vette as his own personal expression of a stylized muscle machine. Shortly after Tom got his own Vette customized, GM experimented with the Corvette design as seen in this late 70s Aerovette Corvette concept car.
