Your rear window will probably melt if you don't get some insulation between it and the cover.

Yes sir
Kind of


Ok
I'm a contractor(custom kitchen and bath specialist)
There was a guy I was working for and he had this car siting for 2 years
He said it doesn't run because of the key related issues
After closer inspection I knew its BS(blown engine etc)
I offered him to give me this car as part of the payment
Explained him that cost of repair for him would be easy in 20k+ range as he did all the previous repairs thu stealership
He didn't took good care of it
It looked like car abonded on lost highway
You could see springs in the seats
That's the story behind it

I second that. Maybe some pics of you taking it to the track and killing vettes on the straights AND in the corners!

Did you do any suspension mods to handle the new horsepower?
