Car of the Month

May 2000
1978 Chevrolet Corvette
Owners: Jim and Laurie Hendricks, Celina, Ohio

Jim and Laurie Hendricks are the proud owners of this 1978 Corvette pace car replica.  This particular car is one of only 200 made with an L-82 engine and 4-speed manual transmission.  The car has only 13,600 original miles, and Jim even has the original factory sticker!  

For being selected as "Car of the Month", Jim has won his choice of a Johnny Lightning pace car replica from the gift shop, or an 8x10 information sheet on the 1995 Corvette pace car.  If you would like to submit your pace car replica for "Car of the Month", simply send a photo and description of your car to   If you do not have a scanner, e-mail me and I will provide you with a mailing address so you can snail-mail photos to me (like Jim did!).
