Hi! I'm a newbie here so I hope I don't offend anyone by posting pictures of the project I have going right now!:eek:







The car will be running a Z06 drivetrain which includes a 505 hp LS7 engine, 6 speed T-56 Transaxle. Suspension will also be Z06 except for the Upper Control Arms which we've modified to take advantage of better suspension geometry.

Hope ya like it!

John I take it this isn't your first build? You will only offend the museum curators with pics like yours. :D Awesome project. :bow: Looks like all you have is interior and paint before you start your next project. :thumbsup:

Thanks Bob! I'll let you in on a little secret!:secret:

When I first started this project I wanted the car to be built as a hybrid street/race car. Kind of a Euro Super Car but all American Muscle. Since then I've had so many inquiries by manufacturers wanting to sponsor the car that it's quickly turning into a show car. Not that thats bad but I can already see the look on all the sponsors faces when I drive the car into their booth and there are little nicks and rock chips from driving it on the track! :eek:
So I'm kind of torn between the two right now as to what I should do!:rolleyes:

Tough choice.:yes: They are made to drive tho. That's half the fun.:D Go with you're gut feeling.;) Man, i can't wait to see her done.:yes: She's going to be a neck breaker, no matter what you decide.

I am working on mine also. But lots to do yet. Getting lots of good advice, and learning a whole bunch as i go.:)Getting some ideas from pics too. Not stealing anything, just some good points and stuff.

John, we sure would like more pics too.

Show her off.:thumbsup:

Welcome John glad to have you here. The car is awesome :yes:
As far as the sponsers, they may put up the cash but the car is yours to do with as you like. Maybe they can spring for paint touch up before the events you have to attend :D
