I said..."It's just a matter of time before I go to jail with the car impounded."


It's a matter of time...yes.

Notice I don't post in Kill Stories either.

Don't want to get caught in a pissin match with some guy that will never race me.

I'm not saying let's go kill all the stupid people...I'm just saying let's remove all the warning labels and let the problem sort itself out.

Yep. I have heard that it changed over the last couple of years but that pic was from Corvettes at Waterside in Norfolk a few years ago.

I went and visited there a couple times while I was stationed at Ft Eustis, it was a really nice place to go, wish I had been there when they had some Corvettes on display

Here's my story:

My dad was always into Corvettes and owned several in his life. When he passed away, it was my mission to find one in his memory. His last was a 1986 2-tone silver coupe.

"Alexa" is a 1985 Z51 Coupe. She had 55,000 miles when I bought her in 2003. I try to do as much work as possible on my own, because as much of a challenge and PITA as it can be, there's an odd serenity about just working on her in my garage. Needless to say, I've learned A LOT.

Now she's got a fresh coat of paint (prepped by me and shot in my garage by a friend). Paint prep link I'm still really proud of that. I've also replaced all the gaskets on the old L98, completely rebuilt the brake calipers and replaced the OD unit on the 4+3 transmission, a well as all the nickel and dime stuff that C4's will get you on.

I've entered her in various shows here and placed 1st and 2nd in the "Early C4" categories with some regularity.

Exterior is Medium Grey Metallic. Interior is Graphite with Sport Seats and remains stock (with the exception of a new stereo and manual switches for the antenna and cooling fan in the ash tray). Engine was recently upgraded to a ZZ4 with TPIS long tube headers, making 241 RWHP and 342ft/lbs RWTQ.

Fresh Paint


Engine (the original L98)

Thanks for checking her out!
Great looking ride! were can i get one of thoses leather covers for my wheel?

Updated pix. Noticed mine where fairly old.





Haven't had a chance to update this one without the Michelin & Apple logos. But I just LOVE this shot!

Actually no, you are now in the super heavyweight hitters club...then you'll be in a league of your own with the boosted LS swap.

I have to say I never looked upon the C4 as a real looker but apparently I just haven't seen the right ones. This thread changed that. Many outstanding rides posted here.
