If you need any other pics, just let me know. Hope your apprentice likes it.

btw, here is a shot of the rear end that is 3" wider than normal to accomodate 11" rears:

Man thats pretty sweet what you can do with the valves. You could hustle people real good with a car like that. Man CD player and Cassette player, did the regular 90's Vette have those? I wish my 88 Firebird had a CD player.

I've been meaning to take a picture of both Vettes and the BMW but its been too wet the last few weeks to take them out to the spot where I want to do it. Its in a rye grass field with 4-5 live oaks with Spanish moss...very picturesque I'll get it done some day soon...

The valves are a great feature. Its ideal for a valet (although I would never dream of letting one of them drive the car). The CD player was an option on all Vettes that year. I believe it was the firsst year this was offered, but I'm not sure.

I bet that cd player doesn't have antischock does it?

I remember looking at I think a brand new 95 (year could be wrong) Firebird Trans Am, and that car still didn't even have a CD player it had cassette. Cd players were coming out on a lot of Pontiac cars, Grand Am, Grand prix, and the damn Firebird would still come cassette only. I couldn't believe it. Maybe there was an option for it, never really did get into looking at its options.

I'm actually not sure if it has anti-shock or not...I've never really used it long enough to notice. Basically, the only music I listen to in that car is the 7000rpm 4-cam V8 symphony
