Great looking ride! were can i get one of thoses leather covers for my wheel?Awesome! Count me in!
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.

Thanks for checking her out! :thumbsup:
