A little Corvette history. And a dream comes true


Filed under: /blogs/browse/t/vehicle/v//p

It was a dream of Chip Miller the founder of Corvettes at Carlisle to locate the number 3 Le Mans corvette it was lost over the years and he knew the anniversary of the race was coming and he thought being an avid corvette lover how cool it would to locate the car restore it to its once race day glory and return it to Le mans for the race. Well a few years ago Chip past away from Amyloidosis. And his son Lance took over his dads crusade to return number to Le Mans . This year at Corvettes at Carlisle they had The number 3 car right on main stage for the world to see. But for the icing on the cake they also had a racer from the great historic race there as well. John Fitch was one of the original drivers in the 1960 race. It looks like Chip Millers dream will come true after all. Thanks to Lance and the team that put it together number 3 will return...

WoW is all I can say... It had to be the best show I ever attended. Once again I was picked for Celebrity picks award and got to drive in front of the grandstand. http://regist...photographers That is a fregin honor to be picked by them.... I got to meet old friends Ive known for years and got to meet some new ones along the way. I entered the downtown parade again this year and that was SO much fun. I can wait till next year Carlisle sure does know how to put on a show!!!! From the sutocross to the burnout contest the beauty contest the parades vendors installs and tuners. There is something for everyone... And how more American can you get then the American flag made out on the hill from Red White and Blue CORVETTES!!!!!

He is at it AGAIN.. The painting of my spoiler yeah right!!!!


Filed under: /blogs/browse/t/vehicle/v//p

Well My painter friend is at it again. I am letting him go at it on my car.Told him to use it as his business card . I get so many people at shows or even gas stations or at the grocery store ask me "How much did that cost?" I really dont have any answers to that.....
Ive seen paintjobs other people have posted online quoting them at 20-30 thousand dollar jobs.. WHAT!!!!!! If I had that kind of money Id own another vette...
I hear the hours they have into their paintjobs and the cost of the paint.LOL.
Not to sound stuck up or anything BUT those 20-30 thousand dollar paint jobs aint got crap on me :) Well My buddies skills I just sit and watch the mad genious at work.

My car would NEVER have got this far if it wasnt for the help of my friends... I feel quiet blessed.

This was suppost to be on my spoiler but he painted my rear hatch :D Im cool with that

a Corvette lovers dream come true Corvettes at Carlisle


Filed under: /blogs/browse/t/vehicle/v//p

What a Blast it was!!!! This was the first year ProCharger had a booth and asked me to display my vette with them. Ill tell you what a great bunch of guys.....I loved talking to everyone about how great my procharger is and all the mieage I have on my car no one believed me but I did hit 228,000 after the parade.
All the greats were there Lingenfelter, Callaway, Kerbeck. The custom vettes the numbers matching old racing vettes. to trailer queens all were there. Sharing a small feild in Pennsylvania for the weekend.
The instalation alley was poppin corvettes being torn apart and put back together right before your eyes. Everyone was lined up at ECS tent for a tune or talking shop. They did a great job on my build I will stand behind those guys and their work till im blue in the face they did an AMAZING job on my gears tranny interior roll bar racing seats blower cam package alky kit. THEY DO IT ALL!!!!! they will even FIX cars that other tuners at the show screw up... HAHA got to love that one.
If you ever get the chance to entend this show its a MUST SEE to believe. Hope you like the photos.

Im gonna be on display at Corvettes at Carlisle!!!!!!!


Filed under: /blogs/browse/t/vehicle/v//p

Yesterday I got a strange request first from an import tuner mag/forum. They wanted me to do an interveiw for them still on the ropes about that one?
Later that night I hoped online again and checked my email and I got an email from ProCharger.
"Please contact us about your car and Carlisle"
So I did they asked if i still owned it DUH!!!!
asked if it was underconstrution and what not.
I answered back Its still mine. Yes its still show quality. BUT I added racing seats roll bar more power since they seen it last :D If that was ok?
Im gonna be the only vette at their display booth I feel so firgine honored I could about cry.....
I usually cook for 4 days in the open fairgrounds have to be up against 20,000 corvettes. Never get to leave the car.
This year I will sit in a AC'ed tractor trailor all paid and get to look around for once. I cant wait........

3rd times the charm


Filed under: /blogs/browse/t/vehicle/v//p

I just received a message the other day from a friend on myspace that he saw my car in Super Chevy. So I had to run out and buy it. let me tell you the third times the charm.

The first time I was in super chevy I had no idea (like everytime its been in there I didnt know) I was in a car chat room on yahoo and some kid from the heartland told me he saw my car in a magazine he stoled from shop class that he was about to cut up for a colgue for school. I was like BULL****!! excuse the french but I didnt believe him. So he swore up and down it was my car and that he would send it to me THANK YOU strange

The second time was less dramatic I was just looking at pictures from the show at the grove and spotted it in the feild lol it really dont count but I think its funny..

can you find my car? here ill help you out lol

Now from the other day finally one of just my car alone and they even said a few nice words about it...
Now my car will live forever in the pages of Super Chevy.

My trip to the VETTE DOCTORS


First let me start with EVERY TIME I go to the VETTE DOCTOR'S I get lost in NYC.... Its not fun but some how I escape..This time I got to see the Empire State Building haha.
Drove right up 34th street.

Even got to go threw the Lincoln tunnel

I was never so happy to see New Jersey..

Corvettes at Carlisle 2007


Carlisle always puts on such great events but this years vettes at Carlsile was AMAZING!!! With all good you must take some bad the fairground was hit but a major storm and many vettes had damage. I got to meet so many people from online one was Sue62Corvette what a sweet lady she is. And she even waited around till I showed up at my car to met me. I also got to meet Reeves Callaway a true corvette icon. There were 10 thousand vettes showing. And I was picked by the GM's head paint manager from Bowling Green Corvette plant. What an honor that was. The parade down town was also a great time. Me and sue survied the heat and made it home safe. To me thats one heck of the way to end the summer....
