Total custom C4

Inside and out, this Vette is truly one-of-a-kind. Talking with the owner while he constantly cleaned his Vette, he said it had become his obsession.

The interior is flat out cool! So clean in it's design with only a few hints of an early C4 interior. The workmanship was top notch, I didn't see a flaw on it.

I snapped these photos at a Vette show in the Florida Keys last month.

View my gallery for larger images.



I like how he covered the windsheild edges, gives it a smooth look.

Although gawdy, the interior work, motor work, and attention to detail are amazing. He even painted the underside of the hood.

That front clip is the "stalker" available at Mid America.

The rest of the car looks like a little of this... and a little of that...

Where is his stereo and DIC?

Not only was the underside of the hood painted, it is as smooth as the top.

The car is total show, the vert top was removed. It's not something I would do to my Vette but, the attention to detail and craftsmanship is amazing. He even had caps for his exhaust tips.

RACING...Because with baseball, football, basketball, tennis, and golf, you only need one ball

I used to think that I had learned patience as I got older. Then I realized that I just didn't give a shit

Very clean
The chrome front tire covers are a neat idea but I like the big ole tires stareing at you when you open the hood.

I love the interior myself. A nice change to the very flat style of the early C4's.

$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ spent..........he has a one of a kind car. If I had that kind of money I would spend it differently. Still, it probably started out simple and then grew.
