Rocket is one bad A$$ car. It's your standard 1985 corvette pure stock sleeper when you look at it "PARKED". When you fire this sucker up you know theirs something mean under that fiberglass.
The car was an everyday driver that look fair at best. Then it was transformed into what I call him "Rocket". First the drive train was pulled out complete. Then the interior was pulled out. The body work started many hours prepping the car for paint hours and hours. While the cars body was being slapped around the crate motor short block ZZ4 was bought... addition of Edlebrock High Flow top end parts Edlebrock puter... SS exhaust from motor to tail pipes all Stains Steel.
I cruise the car two / three days a week do the starbucks thing let the teenager drool...lol At red light most just look and ask what do you have in that thing...they don't even try.. the motor has a loby cam and it's loud. I'm not a street racer, no way, that is just not safe, but I have smoked a few...lol
The car looks super clean 3K paint job (1500 cost me) friends in low places. Interior solid RED looks brand new..still smells like a new car since the interior was installed. Yes I have spent alot of money and time on Rocket but it's been worth every penny.
