Rob Chalfant’s 2004 Chevrolet Corvette convertible

Representing the STA-BIL® Brand Fuel Treatments

300-STABIL - Rob Chalfant 2004 Chevrolet Corvette convertible

I have a 2004 Corvette that I bought with low miles. It was all original at the time of purchase. I have spent many $$$ on her since.

She has chrome under the hood, chrome rims and hubs, painted calipers, black out kit, rear spoiler, tail light louvers, custom exhaust, interior goodies as well as other custom ad ons. My car does very well at corvette shows and other shows also. She gets the looks and I am a very proud owner.

My girlfriend says I spend more money on my car than her. The car never argues with me though! lol Thanks for checking out my cool ride.

Taylor Moore’s 1962 International Harvester Scout 80

Representing Start Your Engines!® Fuel System Revitalizer

300-SYE-Taylor Moore 1962 International Harvester Scout 80I got this Scout from my grandpa when I was 14 years old. I spent the next 4 years hand building and customizing it.

It started as a restoration but soon developed into full blown custom. I swapped out the 4 cylinder for a fuel injected SBC with a 5 speed, Gm axles fully built with lockers and 4:11 gears, Custom built 4 link coil over suspension that I built myself rolling on 37″ tall tires. Hand made bumpers and rock sliders, as well as the roll cage, hand built dash and console, with touchscreen radio and GPS navigation, I sprayed bed liner in the interior engine compartment and under body.

I finished it when i was 18 and I hand fabricated just about every part on the truck and I did all the work myself except for paint and body.
