Default requests for pics

Hello
I am making a 3d model of a corvette based on this blueprint:
www (dot) the-blueprints (dot) com/blueprints/cars/chevrolet/24522/view/chevrolet_corvette_c3/
and the model itself is complete but I wish to texture it with some photos to make it look more realistic. My problem is that I can't seem to find a complete set of photos of the same car of the type that is in the blueprint(not sure what the model name is) so I was hoping someone here could help me out with some nice pictures dead on from the side, the back, the front and if possible the top.
Thanks

(sorry for posting link but I just can't explain which body type I am referring to otherwise)

Not sure if this helps you, but here's a video of mine that I did a couple years ago. Good luck.

thanks for the reply, I could probably get a few cuts from the video and use those, but I was hoping for some pictures with a little less reflections, and maybe one from directly above would be great.
Anyways that is an awesome vette, almost unbelivable that you built it.

Thanks! Sorry, don't have the pictures you're looking for. I can't take any right now because I'm modifying the hood for cold air intake to the engine. Yeah, I built it and constantly doing more upgrades all the time. I upgraded the trans from a 4 speed to a T56 6 speed since the video. I'd like to see that 3D model when you are done.

The blue print drawings are of a 1980-1982 Corvette. To get photos of those angles would almost require a photo shoot to mimic the drawings especially the overhead view. I have some of my car but I don't have the bubble rear window. You might be able to search the year range of vehicle for photos and find something that might work.

Good Luck

ok. thanks will search a bit more for 80-82 in specific. I think I might be luckier searching through cars for sale ad's instead of galleries also because the shots tend to be more thorough. Just need to stay cool so I don't end up buying one :P
