The instrument panel was customized to fit a full compliment of AutoMeter UltraLite Pro Comp gauges. The door handles are from a Cadillac STS and are a nice added touch. To date I have won first in class at Chicago World of Wheels, The Midwest Corvette and Chevy show, Route 66 NMCA/NMRA Super bowl Show and Shine, Super Chevy Show, Gold at Chevy VetteFest, and first, best of show, best engine or best paint at numerous local events. I ran it down the track at Route 66 Joliet, IL in August and first time out in street tune it ran 12.20’s in the ¼ mile all day long. What a blast that was!!! I haven’t raced in 37 years. I’m sure with a professional tune and some practice it will run 11’s all day long. Although I didn’t build it to race it, it was intended for shows and cruises, I just wanted to see what it would do.
