About “Sleen - RIP 10-26-06”

I bought this car completely stock in November 2004. 2 weeks shy of having owned it for two years, I was in an unfortunate accident resulting in the car being totalled on 10-26-06 :(

I am going to take part in as many challenges as I can throughout January as a final farewell.

Throughout the 2 years I had this car, I put a lot of blood, sweat, and money into it. From fixing stuff (yeah, its a chevy, lol) to adding go-fast goodies, It has taught me a great deal and at the same time creating an obsession for performance that i just cant shake (not that i want to :D ). I am currently rebuilding its LT1 into a whole new monster which will be transplanted into my black 97' Z28 rolling chassis (see garage).

I had many un-finished plans for this car, but at least now part of it can survive on through the next project!

About “Leviathan”

I bought this car after trading in my 2004 SVT Focus. I had an opportunity to buy a 99 cobra for about 3grand less...but passed on it for the better interior/exterior condition GT. One thing I did like about testing out Cobras was the suspension, so a year after buying this car I swapped in a whole new setup.
