Nice! I am not much of a vette person but I can appreciate it. I think the Tune port engines are the best looking engines GM made. They just look kickass under a hood.

hummm.. I have a hard time getting that even with half the cylinders as you!

I'm really not too fond of that body style, but it looks good for a 1990!

yeah, they are a little worse for wear, the previous owner didn't really take good care of it, and never put anything on them, but i have new covers on order, and expect them in the next week or so, but this is what i'm putting on them, they are iggee seat covers specially made for the sport seats

yeah, i think the TPI was one of their better setups, a hell of alot better then the crossfire injection, or even with the LT1's have their problems with the opti-spark setups

it does drive me nuts, but i wanted a roadster, and a 6 speed... there was a few 6 speeds on craigslist, but none of them were roadsters, so you can guess the winner on that... i sure as hell wasn't going back to a coupe
