Description

There are over 700 pictures in my restoration thread:

Which denotes every single piece I've restored. Everyone who has seen this car knows how well I've restored it. I purchased the car when I was 21 and have owned it for the last 13 years. The car underwent a major restoration a few years ago.
Our family has owned over a dozen of these C4 Vettes and outside of our C4 ZR1, this one has been the most reliable and non-problematic one. It's the one child that always does what it's supposed to do and never gave me any grief. I know a lot about C4 Vettes and can take them apart with my eyes closed at this point.
This is a real Z07 Vette which is fairly rare in the C4 community. This was basically Chevy's Track package. It has a re-calibrated computer for the shocks, Engine Oil Cooler, Bigger Brakes, Bigger Sway Bars, and stiffer valved Bilstein adjustable shocks direct from the factory.
I've been up and down on if I want to sell it but have come to the conclusion that I need to move on.
I have done so much to the car so I will try to summarize everything. A lot is in the restoration thread but here goes:
  • Complete rebuild of front and rear ends
