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 “#00 noo!”

soo originally after my 95 z28 i wanted a 6 speed ls1. didnt really care if it was a ss or not, but i ran into my last SS for 5700, it was a auto but i couldnt pass up the deal! eventually i ended up selling the car and bought a 97 tahoe with a 6" lift.. i loved it!(in the mud) but its not the same as a camaro ((i missed the random cruises, long turning on ramps, having random photoshoots, and seeing another f body pass by as we both look at eachothers cars haha.
soo my dad was at his friends tow yard and called me saying they had a red convertible 2000 SS that was a theft recovery up for sale, and asked my dad if we wanted to buy it, because it was going to be put on bid for salvage yards to part it out. so the next day i go to look at it, and when they said theft recovery they meant EVERYTHING was stripped! interior,motor, trans, driveline, all the wiring ((engine harness, computer, etc)) and everything out of the dash was gone.! it was pretty much just a shell on wheels!
so i ended up buying the car and its taken a couple months with arguements, frustration, and new cuss words but finally shes out on the streets. =]
