I've always been in to cars. Here are some pics of my current ride and some of the changes that I have made to her...

I had a 1998 C5 coupe, but while shopping the web for some performance brake rotors I found this beauty and had to have it:



The first thing I did was get rid of those stock Corvette "Wagon Wheels" and replaced them with some Enkei V1's



...and added some chrome tips and tail light black-outs



I thought I would be satisfied with just that, but...the mod bug bit me and we all know that just one mod isn't enough!!!

No pics, but next was the install of my Vortex Ram Air Intake. Man, talk about a SOTP improvement...WOW. Gave me a 22hp increase at the flywheel

Next was the install of my MOMO Combat carbon fiber shif knob.



While I was on the inside of the car, I decided to add some decals



Now even though I loved the look of my car with the Enkei's on, something was still missing. She wasn't low enough. So, what did I do, I enlisted the help of my Corvette Forum (corvetteforum.com) friends and lowered away !!!



How low did we go...?



Slammed yes :D



I even added some neon...repeat after me..."not rice, not rice, not rice" :D




What's next...LS6 Intake, Heads/Cam, SLP Loudmough exhaust, custom hood.

This is me with my baby :D

Thanks...The wheels are Vette stock sizes. 17x9 up front and 18x10 in the rear.

Lowering the car actually made the ride much better(at least it feels that way to me). The car already has a low and wide stance, plus I've added a beefed up suspension and a "chin" spoiler up front. I have to admit, my top speed so far ( :devil ) is 156mph. At that speed, it felt like the car was glued to the road....and "S" curves on north GA mountain roads...WOW :rock
