You will scare the crap out of most 5.0 Mustang guys and Vette owners with your 84 Vette.

Unless you make your way to Joliet, IL or Route 66 raceway.

Some badass cars around. They are not afraid to race like you also.

Think most would be impressed with how your '84 launches and leaves in a hurry.

I had my 406 built locally in the SF Bay Area by an X top fuel racer, Tim Morgan. Good forum members include Jim (421 tpi vette) http://forums.corvetteforum.com/c4-t...t-of-pics.html


and PeteK.

The 84s ride stiff as hell, even my 89 rode like it had no shocks at all, just the way they are.

Sounds like a plan. Need to find out who has time to fit me in.

Ya my '84 does the same thing. I'm 6'2" and the roads around here are terrible. There are a few spots where I have to brace myself and duck down so I don't smash my head into my roof!
