Introducing the Mako Shark Corvette

I was always a Corvette kid more than a hot rodder back in the day. When I first saw photos of the Mako Shark my heart would not stop pounding. Living in Iowa it was several years before I actually got to see this car in person and up close. It had been on the show circuit for many hard years and was looking very ragged around the edges.

However, it was not a disappointment and excited be all over again. By this time the new C3 design had been on the street for some time so the Mako Shark was not as shocking as when it was first unvailed back in 1965. It remains a swoopy design that is over the top but has its place in Corvette lore and history.

I grew up and lived in Iowa for a good portion of my life before moving to Southern California. After 20+ years we now live outside Nashville Tennessee. I have been into cars since I was old enough to remember. I don't have a brand loyalty although I do prefer American Muscle especially the 1969/1970 NASCAR Aero Cars. (Check out our other web site at site) As long as it has four wheels and an engine I get excited. Few men are lucky enough to be able to share their passion for cars with the woman they love. Fortunately, my wife, Katriana, is also a gear head and many of our activities revolve around the cars. We have a small collection that includes at least one car from each of the Big Three. It includes a Best of Show winner, a survivor, a driver with lots of patina and several others. Katrina prefers all original cars while I like to modify them so we have a few of each. When we aren't playing with cars we are out working with or showing our miniature donkeys. You can see more about that part of our lives at
