I know the car was originally from VA Mechanicsburg or the Haymarket area (as part of a collection of Corvettes). The car started life as a three speed 327, which is rare but not desirable. My course was set because when I bought it the original motor and trans were gone. Well, we tried to make it as reliable as possible and we seem to have done it! Thanks for checking the old guy out! The name of the car is Mr. Kells because that was the last owner's name from 1991 that I was able to research and actually contact.

This car was put together with the help of a very good friend of mine, Paul Comeau of The Corvette Shop in Montgomery, NY. Absolutely none of the body kit panels fit the way they were supposed to, and Paul did a superb job of fitting everything with outstanding precision. The car started life as an LS1 that I quickly took to East Coast Supercharging for their Novi Paxton Supercharger, Billy Boat exhaust and dyno tune. Custom electronics include McIntosh MC4000M amplifier, Eclipse CD/DVD/Navigation, Escort SR7 Radar Detector/Jammers. Installation and custom trunk fabrication for the amplifier, subwoofer, and LED-illuminated crossed-flag etched plexiglass insert were done by People Hookin' Up Cars of Newburgh, NY. All stock emblems were removed and replaced by airbrushed emblems by Pat Downey of AirPower, Middletown, CT. Recently got a cover for Corvette Enthusiast Mag June 08!
