Representing STA-BIL Fuel Stabilizer: Don’s 1960 Chevy Corvette Modified
I picked this 1960 up in 1978. It was junk, but I wanted one badly. After a year I decided to go all the way. I disassembled it down to a bare frame and brought it back from there. Having lost the use of one arm I still did all body work, built, welded, modified, ran every wire one by one, and assembled every part of this car by myself. The only things I didn’t do were the final candy apple red (you gotta be good)and seat upholstery.
The blower motor is 355ci with 7-1 compression. The blower is from Dyer’s at 11% under driven. Tranny is a TH400 with B+M shift kit, trick converter, and B+M dual pattern race shifter. A Jim Meyer front end with power steering and power brakes makes this rod an easy driver. A ’64 Pontiac rear end with 3:42’s gives a better ride than the old 5:38’s. Fuel cell, wheelie bars, and a parachute finish out the rear.
Representing 104+ Octane Boost: Jason’s 1930 Ford Model A Prostreet

Representing 303® Products: Steve’s 1973 Chevy RS Camaro
I found this car sitting in a drive way. I bought the car with the intention of doing something different to it. It had some rust repair in rear of car but other than that, the car was solid.
All glass and chrome are still orignal. Shaved all sidemarker lights door handels and locks. The car was painted in a house garage, people can’t belive it.
Motor is a 468 big block with a turbo tci 350, Chevy rear with 3.42 gear.
Car gets alot of looks… but fun to drive!!
