About “Christine”

The car was sitting in my fathers garage for 11 years. I brought life back into it.He passed it down to me. I love it more than any girl. More reliable then one too haha. The car has 12,522 original miles. I'm the only owner of the car. It still has the original tires.

About “GTA”

Finally managed to buy this car which was in Charlotte....for a cheap $1800.Wasn't sure why it was so cheap until I saw it.Someone had spray painted every interior piece red including the door panels.The original interior was Saddle Tan before it was hacked.The good though is the car was professionally painted Ferrari Red and had an Engine and Trans professionally installed.A 1988 Corvette 350 TPI,aluminum heads with ~400 Hp and a TCI racing 700R4 Auto Trans.Well worth what I paid for the car.However I'm not to keen on the Digital Dash option on the car since they are notorious for failing.

Specs for “GTA”

The "H" code 4-barrel 305 was swapped out for a 1988 Corvette TPI 350.I'm sure the engine was done by a professional just by looking at the engine but as to what was done,I don't have a clue.I do know they did enough to back up the engine with a TCI Racing 700-R4.And it will break the tires loose on the 1-2 and the 2-3 shift.Seat-of-the-pants feel she has in excess of 400HP.I haven't done any times on it yet but she'll burn the hides off those Gatorbacks.
