It's a beauty! Did you have it repainted or is it original paint? I've bought mine new and with only 12,500 miles, i still have some road rash on the front.

Fantastic and thanks!


Yes, the car is lowered with BC Racing coilovers. The total drop is about 2" in the front and a little over 2" in the rear. The wheels and tires are CCW SP510s. The fronts are 19x9 with 255/35/19 tires and the rears are 19x10.5 with 285/30/19 tires.

The car has the original paint from GM; however, I have spent a lot of time with the Adam's Detailing system and it has paid off as I get compliments on the paint all the time.

Your car sounds nice, best of luck modifying it to your liking!

Mod list is as follows:

Car made 444/389 on the dyno and is good for low 12s on street tires. I will run it on drag radials and front runners soon and I'm hoping for consistent 11s.

Here are some more pictures of the car
