You are right about that. Unfortunatley I am tapped right now. Just moved to a new house and am trying to get a garage built. 30 x 40 with 12 ceiling. Already got the lift.

Nice conversion. A lot of work there. My question concerns the original ZR-1 donor car. What happened to it?

That is a nice conversion. Looks like a fun car to drive. My question is-what year/car is that steering wheel from?

The donor was probably a totaled ZR1. There were a few of them. There will probably be more C6 Z06s soon to come.

$75 grand??? C'mon.. :eyerole
No way that car is worth 75 large. Maaaaybe $50 at the high end of the market.

"Own the CORVETTE that Chevrolet would have built for the fraction of the building cost !!!"

Puh-lease! Take it to Barrett-Jackson if you are going to inflate the price that high..

Now that's an engine I'd love to stuff in a C3.
