HISTORY
I'm a Corvette Fan since I'm a little boy.

I bought my first Vette back in 1993,
a 1971 Corvette Convertible, small block 350 /270HP, 4-speed in a relatively original condition

 

 

 

I drove the car for about 6 years and I had a lot of fun with it. In some occasions I attended some autocross races.

 

 

In 1999 I realised that the chassis of my Vette was in a very bad condition (rust)
and I decided to start a frame off restoration.

It was my target to build the car to my personal needs and  taste.
- The chassis was repaired, reinforced (for better torsion stiffness), and hot dip galvanized.
- The paint was sanded down, the under body coating was removed.
- All little cracks in the GRP where repaired
- The Sill was replaced

 

 

 

 

I installed a Vette Brake Suspension System

 

A brand new ZZ383 Crate engine from
GM Performance, has been installed

 

 

The whole restoration took me 8 1/2 years !!
