Wow! Great Choice. I have always loved the Corvette.
This looks like a great ride for sure.
Congrats on the replacement. Maybe someday I will get one too......Nah, just dreaming!

Thanks guys! I really love it so far. I plan on making it mine over time but I won't go crazy with it like I did the monte.

Visuals I want to tint the windows, add a rear diffuser, black out the corner markers.

Performance I want to do a 17" conversion on the back and run a set of weld bead locks. It will get heads/cam and other bolt ons. Possibly a bigger supercharger but we will see. Goal with this car is a 9sec 1/4 mile reliable street car!

Great choice. I always assumed you would go either a 'vette or something crazy like an older viper. Should be super easy (with a ton of support) to get the power that you want out of this car. Which I'm sure is something that will be odd for you after your insane custom build with the Monte!

Funny you mention viper. I went and looked at a 4th gen viper actually. The viper has always been a childhood dream for me. I decided against the viper do to how small and uncomfortable they are for me since I am a bigger guy. The Vette has so much more room!

The support for these cars is plentiful which is very nice. I will never be a "top dog" with the Vette like I was with turbo monte but I am okay with that. As long as I love the vehicle I have I do t need all the "internet fame". It was cool though I must admit lol.
