Build story

The car was rear ended and totalled when I bought it out of a scrap yard. I traded my 72 RS Camaro roller for Corvette parts to piece the Vette together. It first had a 396 with a tunnel ram and 2 660 center squirted carbs with a high lift solid cam making 550hp. It had a TH400 with a 3500 stall, Erson gear drive and chrome side pipes and headers. At the time i was doing diesel conversions and at a shop get together we had a guy bet us a Cummins couldn't be put I'm the Corvette so it was on. It was ironic because at the time I was racing my daily driver F350 with the NHRDA so I built this car to run in their Pro Stock class. We were testing it in the fall of 09 racing it the spring of 10. The car is currently being swapped over to be more street friendly. The Hoosier quick times are no fun in rain etc lol
