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 “EZEKIEL”

I have owned Ezekiel since 97 and all I can say is it still puts a smile on my face every time I turn the key. The name Ezekiel was given to it by Scott Settlemire at the F-Body Gathering several years ago and it stuck. I noticed he was checking it out for quite a while so I went up to ask him what his thoughts were, his reply was" This is one of the evilest F-bodies I have ever seen, it is the Ezekiel of F-bodies!" Scott was the brand manager for Camaro/Firebird and is now over Corvettes.
