WOW! They sure do!

Those first two of the #84 are of the Corvette that we ran in SCCA ASR (A sports racing) in 1984. We Qualified and went to the SCCA champoinship runoffs with it. I think we finished 6th overall. We had a severe oil pressure issue and I had to cost through several of the hard high speed turns. It ended up being a broken oil pick up in the dry sump tank. The car was a cross ram fuel injected 454. It was a rocket from corner to corner.The chassis and running gear of that car is actually the Greenwood "Spirit of LeMans" that was run in 1976. It did 227 MPH on the Mulsanne straight.

The people in the Picture from left to right, Lynn Powell who was one of my best friends. Lynn was a brillant machinest who helped design and build the suspension on several of our cars. He passed away from the big "C" about 15 years ago. The guy on the right is Brian McGlennigan who worked for me at the time. and that skinny guy in the center is me...Gee...I don't remember ever being that skinny.

When GM racing gave the C4 bodywork to us to develop for Trans Am, we discovered that we could actually convert C3 Corvettes to the updated bodywork. We designed a new front suspension, converted to a steering rack, and changed the wheelbase to the C4 specifactions. We sold it as a kit along with the bodywork. I think that we built about a dozen kits. I did however save all the parts from the LeMans car and when I needed money to build my next tube frame Trans Am car I sold it to Paul Canary who restored it (thank goodness)and sold it to a collector. It is certainly a piece of racing history.

I sure wish I had it today. At the time it was just last years race car and I needed the newer and better stuff to compete.

The # 19 was the newer and better stuff! it is a tube frame car we built entirely in our shop. It was the first car we designed and built from scratch. We did ok but we just didn't have the budget to complete the way we would have liked to. We were however respectable!

I recently found the 19 car and bought it back. It has had quite a few owners and it was converted to a C5 and run in GT1. I intend to restore it to the original C4 and run it in SVRA and HSR. It isn't the LeMans car but it has a bucket load of racing history and I believe still holds some hillclimb records.

For what it's worth, I am planning to reporduce the LeMans car too. It was owned by Rick Mancuso and has an extensive racing history.

Default ACP CF Hood - Thank you

I just had to share it since I get so many compliments on it almost daily. Seriously the quality of work and the finished results are worth every penny I spent and any time someone asks me what I think about it I just tell them look at it. The work speaks for its self. You guys did an amazing job and I just wanted to say Thanks and I look forward to buying more here in the future.

Pfew ... Kerry's last forum post was on March 12, 2011, he must have been busy day and night the last three years!

Kerry, hope you can chime in, because I saw your carbon fiber A-pillar parts in this post, and I cannot find these on your website - see also the attached picture.
How much are you asking and how can I order these from you?

Thanks in advance,

Ronald
