VEHICLE STORY

From my youngest days, I've dreamed of some day owning a Corvette. There's a picture that's been on my parent's fridge since it was taken of me standing next to a red C3 at a cruise night when I was 5 or 6 years old, and I was smiling ear to ear. 14 years of dreams and hard work later, I'm almost 20, and my second car purchase is a beautiful bone-stock C5 ripe with endless possibility. A C5 has always been my attainable dream car, and starting with one as clean as this one is (still had the skip-shift enabled at 70k miles), I can say with absolute certainty that every repair, mod, and tune is a direct reflection of myself and my goals for what I want this car to be. Speaking of goals, here's the plan. 2020 Season is over! For 2021, the plan is to just enjoy the car as-is while building the engine below. Engine Plans (still a long ways off, but I have bought a block!): Forged LS3, bored .010 over. Ported/polished head castings Built valvetrain for 8000 RPM redline 700hp, 550lbs/ft. Will continue to update the installed parts list as I go.
