VEHICLE STORY

This was my mom's first car in 1979, she sure knew how to pick em. Her and her father walked on to the Sullivan Chevrolet lot and beyond the sea of corvettes, she saw a new Z28 sitting tucked back; it was a custom ordered car for a client who couldn't afford it, extremely fast and optioned to get down a 1/4 mile as fast as a production car would in that vintage. Needless to say, Sullivan was not readily willing to sell that car to a teenage girl. Her father worked some magic, and surprised her in their home parking lot, "you've got one hour to learn stick or it goes back!" Luckily for me- she learned. fast forward to 2010 and that's when I, 16 years old at the time, started this restoration turned full build. After sinking everything I had into it for over 4 years, the car was done and my vision came to life. I had built the car that GM should have built to begin with. Now, however, it is time for the build to progress. While the exterior will remain largely untouched, near future plans include a 400ci platform, an Eaton TrueTrac, big brakes in the front and a disc conversion in the rear, and a full QA1 suspension kit. I want to take this car from run of the mill, to competing with today's sports cars. Power goals are upper 400's to the wheels, with the stopping power and grip to match.
