About “The Rocket”

Super Sport #7669 of 8912 produced on May 15th, 2000. I bought my car on November 2004 from the original owner. She was pretty much stock when she came to me and has been undergoing an extensive series of modifications transforming her from a mild-mannered SS to the Street-terrorizing demon my car has become. Major mods include; valvetrain and cam, intake and exhaust, suspension and drivetrain upgrades.
