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 “Ramair1”

It wasn't till 1999 when I became the proud owner of my 1999 TransAm when I saw a commercial with the black TransAm on it, when it chewed up and spit out it's tail pipe, (I can't even remember what kinda a car it was but it was awsome and I Knew I had to have one). So I called around every where in my area and no one had one until a dealership located one in Purcell, OK. So I set up a time to go visit the dealership 2.5 hrs away and made arrangements to take delievery. Needless to say the day I took delievery was the day and very moment that the killer F5 tornado was doing all of it's destruction in Moore, OK just 10 miles or so to the north of us. All I wanted to do was make my way back SE of where the storm was. As we were driving away we could see the exploding transformers in the distance. We made it home safe and sound and it has been a joy to drive ever since. I do show the car and race the car occasionally

Best in the quarter mile is 11.54 @ 116 through the traps na, with 60' times at 1.6, currently have a 100 shot N20 installed but have yet to make a decent run w/o any bugs to work out. When all is said and done it should be in the 10.50 time zone.
Top speed prior to gear change (3.42:1 now has 3.73:1) was 168 mph. The road condition ahead prevented me from continueing but had pedal left to go. The air pressure had started breaking the window seals. :D LOL (this was done early one cool sunday morning going to church!!!)
