Except for the engine internals, I did the restoration project in my garage at home. I pulled the engine and took it to a machine shop. It was bored .040 over and and assembled with new hypereutectic alloy pistons, Comp Cam .283 thumper series .532 lift. Dart SS Iron Eagle heads. I brought the engine back home and bolted on a new Tremec T45 Five Speed trans and installed it. Open in gallery |

These two are the only Corvettes I have ever owned (so far) I wanted to own and drive a Corvette since the first time I saw one as a kid of 15. From that day on I didn't care what year or color I just knew I wanted a Vette some day. I got side tracked for almost 40 years with a stop in between to have and raise my son and daughter. My wife passed away in January of 2000 and before she died she made me promise her that I would not forget the dream to own a Corvette. After she passed away I started devoting all my attention to my long time desire and promise I made to myself at age 15 to own a Corvette and live the car show/car club life style. I got my first Vette in 05, a burgandy 88 coupe in near perfect condition which I affectionately named "Lil Angel" after my late wife. That car was my daily driver up until it reached 100,000 miles. Now she is my long distance driver for vacations and Sunday drives. In September of 2007 I purchased my 78 black coupe. She was a little rough around the edges but I've since done a 90% restoration to bring her up to the condition I want her in for my dependable driving show car. I spend most of my spare time driving to car shows or working on my cars improving them and doing routine maintenance. Open in gallery |

I got my first Vette in 05, a burgandy 88 coupe in near perfect condition which I affectionately named "Lil Angel" after my late wife Michele who was the inspiration behind for me keeping the promise I made so many years ago. This car was my daily driver up until it reached 100,000 miles. Now she is my long distance driver for vacations and Sunday drives.I spend most of my spare time driving to car shows or working on my cars improving them and doing routine maintenance.
