    Well here we go again! This OCD thing is starting to get a little much I know! That said i’m JustA not happy withe the front cover/splitter mod. It’s lacking that punch I was looking for. So guess what I’ll be doing this winter? Right a new front cover, a new front Kaminari lower cover add-on plus additional mods to both pieces and a additional add/change to the front splitter. The front splitter will be different on the finishing ends. Instead of ending 3/4 of the way to the wheel well opening it will finish at the wheel well with an outer wing.

There was no more space in Heritage Park! 1954 Corvette I was waiting for the kid to stick his tongue out like a dog! Got motor? A Z/TA Conversion 442 Convertible An '81 Phoenix? Wow. This had to be my favorite towing company sign.....ever.

    You could order a Mallet Solstice with an LS3 from your Pontiac dealership back in the day. It came with it's own powertrain warranty that the dealer would honor. I have seen two Malletts so far. At Woodward is a Fiero that has a blown V8 in the front of the car!

    Wow! Quite a bit of work you’ve done to it. Looks great! I especially love that trunk lid. Some good “go” mods as well 👍
