    WOW. I can not decide which if three things on your car are the most beautiful, e.g., its color, its tire tread pattern, or its overwhelming performance. Guess it is a 3-for-3, “11” — on a scale of 1 to 10.
    GBA Black; HTO Twilight/Tension interior; Z51 & Mag Ride; E60 lift; 5ZZ high wing; 5VM vis CF ground effects pkg; FA5 interior vis CF; ZZ3 engine appearance; 3LT; Q8T Spectra Gray Tridents; J6N Edge Red Calipers; SNG Edge Red Hashmarks; VQK Splash Guards. Separately getting from my dealer RCC Edge Red engine cover, 5JR vis CF mirror caps, and VJR illuminated sill plates.

      Just one problem John

      As the saying goes
      If your going to play, you gotta pay ! :-)

      This 99 with all the mods has been a bullet to this day,
      Everything works just fine as of today and the only problem it had was my fault as
      the drag strip maybe near you, Woodburn track
      I was way ahead of the guy I was racing and not to go faster then the ET I dialed in I went to slow down before the traps
      and over rev'd engine on downshifts and bent 2 valves.
      Luck though they did not hit the tops of pistons !

      Anyone who says the Corvettes are clunkers and cheap just have not driven them hard enough . . . .
