Can't help you with a new 'Vette, (congratulations BTW) but with my '56, I used
a 16" aluminum transcription disc as a GP under a 1/4 wave vertical. With the
soft top down, the antenna rested on the folded top in the storage bay and the
vertical poked up beside one of the hold down latches.
Rig was a Heathkit Twoer. Best DX was from a friend's driveway in Tempe back
here to another friend in Tucson. But I date myself :-)

I take delivery of my new Corvette next month.
This has the potential of creating a nightmare for me, amateur radio wise.
Fiberglass body and all...I am not excited about drilling a hole in the body
anywhere for an antenna.
So..my question is: How do I go about installing an antenna on the car for
my 2 meter/440 Kenwood radio? (TM-D710A)
I forsee a noise (RFI) issue, as well as a ground plane issue. I am fairly
confident that I can handle the noise, but the ground plane...
Any thoughts? Or anyone who is experienced in these type of fiberglass body
installs that someone here could recommend to me?
Many thanks in advance!
