1981 Corvette, Revised!

My name is Tim Allen from Clearwater, Fl and this is my 1981 hobby Corvette.
1981-Corvette
I bought this 81 Corvette in 2011. It was cream color with all the original components. It was clean with 59,000 miles. It was a one owner car. After being hit, I decided to modify it.

I first replaced the suspension with slalom suspension then added a 350 HO engine with a Holley 4 bbl carb, dual fans, new air filter system and flowmaster exhaust. I rebuilt the headlights and painted it black. Tinted the windows, added black carpet and kept the tan leather interior. Last week I replaced the Rally wheels with lighter aluminum rims.
I've always loved this body style of the car. It seems to have the best lines. It now has about 425 HP and can take an exit at 70 mph. Next on my list is to supercharge it. I fell in love with this style when it first came out but wasn't impressed with the performance. Now I'm very impressed with the speed and handling of it. I will continue to modify it while keeping it as close to original looking as possible.
