    I think it is a paint job and a set of wheels away from perfect.

      Well, I wouldn't have done it that way.

          What? No contingency decals? Preposterous! :P

          Beautiful car, but a little too blingy IMO. Like Seth said, needs some real drag wheels. I do like the paint, though.

              I kind of like it, but $125k, not that much. And I'd like to see what happens to the rockers when they start it up. And my liking it fully depends on it making down a full quarter mile in one piece, and I'm not talking about a 14 sec granny run.

                wow,, this doesn't get the praise of the top 8 car got for the riddler award..
                it's got the design/fab/ and workmanship.. same as the undrivable riddler cars..
                OH ya,, it's pro fairgrounds, I see the difference now..
                the same ones that see the riddler award top 8 as "ART" will lamb based, this car..

                    I saw this car under construction while visiting the shop for the BlowFish debut and the Top Sportsman Camaro was also there at the time. My guess is that there is more than $125k invested in it and the same level of workmanship is in everything they build. While visiting, Chicayne was also present and on the rack with mud and grass in the stainless exhaust and detailed undercarriage. It seems it lost the power steering pump or something while being thrashed on one of its many visits to a road course track. To the best of my knowledge, Troy and his team still build cars to drive. The ultimate decision is in the owners hands as to whether that investment shows it's mechanical mettle on the street or track. I was there for two days and they were an awesome group of people to hang with and learn from. Don't forget Troy's friendship/ partnership with John Meaney, they use BigStuff3 in their rides which obviously is well...big stuff. :-)

                    Hmmm, they need a little trailer for the track wheels/tires for DW. Looks like the rockers can be removed, maybe that's the plan. :P

                    And no, I didn't realize it was a real 63 'Vette...not sure I would do that to one myself unless it was a total basket case. Of course as can always be said, 'it's his car, he can do whatever he wants to it'. I've got a belly button, 6 cylinder 67 coupe of no historical relevance and purists still give me flack for back halving it.

                      I like rod saboury's black 63 from the eighties
