This is Bob's '57 Vette. His dad started on the car in the late 60's, but never finished it. The classic car was rescued in July of '95 and looks beautiful. The car is a '57 body, '62 frame, and is being built to vintage road race specs. The front is lowered 3", has Yokohama Z rated tires, and Bilstein gas shocks. Under the hood is a nice 327, drilled out .040 over (333 cubes) with a bumpy hydraulic cam, '90 Vette heads, stock crank, and Keith Black Hypereutectic pistons, Childs & Albert moly rings. It turns about 10.5:1 compression, and spins to 6000 with its current points ignition system. Bob is having fun with this car, the motor was new in May, and has already seen 2000 miles.
The Mazda is an '86 RX-7, runs in stock class SCCA autocross (SOLO II) competition, has 144,000 miles, and is the daily driver. This is the 130mph shop truck for the Vette!
