Corvette - An American Dream: Star Coupe

Star Coupe

This is a gorgous example of a great Vette that's had some serious mods done to it.

I'm going to let Tim tell you about it because I'll probably get it all screwed up if I try. It's way to technical and performance-oriented for me. I just put the gas in mine and drive it. I'm a bit jealous, actually.

Here's Tim...

It's a medium Light Pewter 1999 Coupe with 32,000 miles on it. Fully loaded with a 6 speed manual tranny. Performance modification consist of full bolt ons and Dyknos at 350/350. Hurricane CAI. Volant Air Bridge/Coupler. MAF. Headers. Highflow CATs with X Pipe. Corsa Indy Pace car mufflers.

I'm obviously into lighting and have convered every interior bult to Red LEDs as well as adding a few: Door Reflectors. Updated to Aukto Dimming rearview mirror w/LEDs installed. Inner and Outer Door Hanldes. Side Cover LED bars.

Costmetic touches include Chrome Y2K wheels with insides painted matt black. Painted calipers. Painted hoodliner, FRC stripes. Painted cowl, wiper arm and custom battery cover. Semi-flush sequential tail lights. Radio Flyer exhaust plate lit with Red LEDs. Painted seat embroidery. Custom center console area leather pieces.

Wow! Tim has certainly spent some time working on this one. But it's obviously a labor of love. What a nice ride. Thanks again for sending the photos and the info.

I see I should have spell checked my narrative before sending it to you! I had no idea it would be published...

I've since added new custom leather interior pieces to the "Star Coupe";

You've done a great job with your Vette and it needs to be shown to the rest of the Corvette lovers.
