Here it is in 1971 racing in Germany with it`s Randy Wittene applied blue/white and purple psychedelic paint.

Your car looks great!
Randy is a genius at putting the right combinations together.

What is your asking price?

As stated in post #10 I emailed you several days ago - maybe you have not responded because you did not get it?

I would double check the e-mail address you used...

[email protected]

That is the most reliable for getting messages through.

One of the other big positives that can come through running one of Kerry's vented hoods is much better control of the temps read by the IAT < intake air temperature > sensors.

In the GM computer control world, IAT's are a big dictator of potential engine performance as higher temp readings will result in richer AFR and timing being dialled out to avoid detonation.

Less lift from underhood air pressure build up, and cooler underhood temps... what's not to like?

I live in Florida, so, underhood temps can rocket up at every stop.

I have visually seen how the computer responds to high IAT's through watching a computer readout... and I've felt the real rollout of performance when the system responds to the high temp readings.

In some circumstances, not losing HP is a net gain.

Welcome to the Forum.

Any plans for offering a few "Group Buys"? In particular for WC 4" splitter/undertrays and 72" Wings??

Cheers,

joel

Thanks Jamie!
We are working to perfect our technique. It seems like you are always the one that helps us get to the next higher level....We love it!!!
I just finished our second one for a Patrick who also lives in New York.
He saw your car at Corvettes at Carlisle and had to have it on his car.
He called me to tell me that he took it to the shore last week and people all thought it was a ZR1...needless to say he was very happy.
I'll be posting some pictures of those along with the real pure carbon A pillar trim too.
Thanks again for all of your support, your car always looks great!
Kerry

Hi Joel,
I'm going to be making special offers from time to time. Not sure exactly what they will be. Group buys are certainly an option.

Meanwhile, the best overall introductry offer I could think of for all forum members was to have free freight costs to anywhere in the continental United States for any orders made until the end of November....That could be a nice piece of change!

If you have a group who wants to do something special email me at [email protected] we can talk.
Thanks,
Kerry

WOW!
You mean that I've been doing this long enough that I am now talking to a second generation Corvette family.....I guess it is true that time does fly when you are having fun!
Do you still have the race car?
Thanks for sharing that with me and let me know if we can make something for your car.

Yes, I seems so! We don't have the car anymore but our friend does. He took your body off, I think it had your body on it when he got it, put a Rich Sloma widebody on it and painted it Lime Green but is now restoring it exactly back to the way my Father had it in the 70s. He was over last week looking for pictures and number templates so it would be exactly the same.

As for my car, I hope I don't need any help from you in the near future!! That would mean bad things had happened!!!
