About “? Lucky ?”

I bought this vette in 2005. I have always wanted one. It was fun working on it, finding different parts needed to improve performance and looks. I wanted it to look different from any other 82. The color looks orange in the daytime and red at nite. 2 good friends, ( Larry & Rodney), helped me to get it where it is today. I really enjoy driving it on cruises and I show it at cars shows. I have received many trophies including Best GM, Ladies Choice, Best 80's, and Best 80's Corvette along with the Top 50's ect. I like going to shows, hanging with the other guy's, seeing there cool cars and getting different ideas from other 82 vettes on how to improve mine. I love driving it.

About “70454SS”

This is my 1970 Chevelle SS. It only has 60,000 original miles.

This is a true SS Chevelle LS5 454 with a M22 Rock Crusher 4-speed. It is an original Cranberry Red car with Black stripes. Unfortunately the original motor blew up in 1971 and the block was no where to be found when the car was resurrected after sitting for 17 years. It is still a 454 but with a late model block, otherwise it is all period correct. This Chevelle had a complete frame-off restoration in 2005 and looks like it just rolled off the showroom floor in 1970.
