About me and my passion for cars
I am a truck driver by trade and this keeps my shifting. I want to soon make some mods to my 95 SSZ. I have already purchased some Nitto drag radials for the rear P315/35 R17's on 11" ZR1 replica rims. I am presently having a bit of a fitment complication with the new rear rubber, but I think I will soon make it work. It already has the 9.5" ZR1 replicas all the way around with Kumos but they are hard as a rock (no traction out of the hole). Ultimately I would like to get the 95 SSZ into the high 12's without a bottle and stiffin the chassis and suspension to do well on a road course as well.
My first car
My first car was a 69 Nova. It was primer grey with a dark green roof and slotted dished rims. It had a 350 engine, bored .060, with double hump heads, a torker intake and a holley 650 vac secondary, backed by a turbo 350 trans with some kind of shift kit. It ran 14.24 at 98.03 mph. This was my 1st and only time to the track with the car.
Car I wish I still had
I wish I had the Nova again or one very similar. I have owned 3 Novas so far.
My dream car
I love the 95 z28 I have now. It is dressed with the SS hood and rear spoiler. It is a six speed manual, and I do love to shift. I do wish it had a more radical cam and better rear end.
