About “little red”

I just got this car, and I love it! I needed a car to have fun with since my 1962 Bel Air wagon was destroyed by a drunk kid in a stolen truck last year. I saw it in a gas station with a for sale sign in it, went and asked about it, took it for a test drive, and wrote a check. It isn't what I expected to get, but I'm glad I got it! I still want to replace my wagon, but it isn't as urgent any more.

About “99 Formula”

My first LS1 car, Ive raced the Formula for almost 3 years now. The car is VERY consistent and paying for herself!

The car is very fun to take on cruises, and gets 25 MPG on the highway. I had many people help me out and sponsor me with parts, tuning, and advice.
Thanks Bret Kepner Photos, McCord Tuning, Hagen Racing, Cross Bones Motorsports, Jiffy Lube of Fenton, and Kee Audio!!
