Default Before and After

Before & After! The past two months have been an amazing transformation on the 2013 C6 Corvette Grand Sport I found online 1058 miles from my house in Chicago that I bought from diamond motor works I flew up with my buddy Brandon to drive the Vette back to Houston. We pretty much started disassembly and moving all the aftermarket parts off the flooded Vette and along with Mateo we built this beast. I got to enjoy it a couple weekends and car related events. The Engine build that we started back in July is finally going in. Yes a couple set backs with total loss from flood on first car but we are ready!

There is a video of the engine put in this week on my Instagram QuickSilverSS

The wheels were part of a theme on the Vette before this one that was Houston Astros theme. You can find old pics of that car on the forums or on my Instagram. QuickSilverSS -However, I decided after losing that one to a flood. I dismantled it and moved everything over to this Vette and havenít had time to get the wheels color changed. This time the car is staying black and Iím leaning towards a silver color or deep gun metal glossy wheels.

But for right now i just tell people the wheels match the bad *** LSX racing engine block!

The car looks really good. The change in wheel color will finish it off nicely.

I like the wheels. They look like the ones I have except for the color and the dish. It's out there but I think the whole thing looks great. More SEMA than daily driver.
Congrats on the accomplishment!

Yeah not a daily. No where near a sema car though. But thanks, I get the compliment
