About “Painkiller”

,
This car was a bit rough at first having sat for a year.
but with a bit of tlc and alot of sweat it has paid off the motor runs strong the interior looks decent now.
has a new hood, spoiler, alternater,battery,exhaust,air intake, plugs and wires, thermostat and coolant sensor.New radiator recently also.
But hard work and determination has paid off.
Due to having too many cars I just recently sold this car.


I just picked up a very cheap 96 corvette LT1 with just 30k miles on it, got it for 1k!
switched over all my parts ( cam, thermostat etc...)
car sounds better then ever
just installed subframe connectors

About “30 Bird”

Well went in the dealership Saturday May 15 1999 to by a corvette (don't hate). After getting the attention of a salesman they finally let me drive the car. As it was going to be my daily driver I took it to the grocery store to do my shopping for the week. It was apparent the practicality of the Vette was wanting. (I had always wanted one) Dejected I returned to the dealership to let them know it was not going to work out with the Vette. They said they wanted to show me one more car. It was the 30th. I was told there was a waiting list and no dealing on the car it would sell for sticker. I saw the car and HATED THOSE UGLY WHEELS. (I think that they are the coolest thing about the car now) made the decision to buy the car placed on the list unbeknownst to me I was already on the list.(not a sales job I was really on the list) I was placed on it in 1994 when (the 25th came out) I could not afford a Geo Metro let alone a trans am at the time, but was sure I would have the money in 5 years. Turns out 1994 me was right. I bought the car Tuesday May 18, 1999 after the first person passed, because it was a stick (they were crazy) It had 7 miles on it when I bought it now it has 111,000 Love this car!
