About “Tiger Shark”

Simple story really.... Broke up with long-time girlfriend and traded in 4x4 family truck for 2 seat sports car...
I was saving up for a Lotus Elise and went to CarMax to check out a Mercedes for a friend. I saw this red Corvette sitting on the showroom floor with a couple hotties sitting in it... I jokingly said to the salesmen "now that I can live with" and he said "I'll go get the keys" and the rest is history.
I loved the car as it sat, but my tuner background kicked in and this is what I have so far... I'm far from done.

* You wanna feel like a rock star, just drive this down the road.
