Modifications

Drivetrain
L-98 with headers and chip upgrade. Very good Torque. 4+3 Transmission with a spare on floor of garage just in case.
Interior
Leather, with power everything.
Exterior
Purple repaint that is peeling providing the aura of an antique vehicle in a not very rare Corvette. This cause folks to stare and wonder what idiot would let a Corvette get in this condition - A question I ask myself every time I drive it.
Audio
Used to be Bose. Now it is Flowmaster exhaust with no Cats and headers.
Suspension
Z-51 suspension package. This is the car's best overall feature. Quick steering and impressive handling. gobs of fun to drive.

Original Z-51 16-inch wheels with 275/50-16s
