    It's stock height. I added the front spoiler and tinted the windows so far. I have things I want to do, but I'm just spending all my time trying to keep it clean so far. Oh yeah, I also blacked out the bowties with carbon fiber wrap and made something I'm going to actually start making on the side...authentic carbon fiber panels to cover up those damn eyesore warning stickers on the visors.

    Those visors are so small they are almost useless anyway. I think I've tried to use mine maybe 3 times?
    That being said, the fifth gens are great cars. I love mine. Drive it every day when the weather lets me.

    That makes two of us, if not s ZL1 than the Z28. Something about that supercharged LS engine that makes me 20 years old again.

    Dirt I like your car - plasti-dipping those wheels black would be sick and add to the stealth look

    on my Mustang I was selling pre-cut black vinyl decals that would cover the atrocious visor warning labels...so there is a big market

    This is what we have our eye on in the not to distant future:

    50th anniversary convertible...

    Would want to find a very low mileage used one with a 6 speed. Probably a retirement gift for Mrs. Champ.

    It's a 2SS/RS 6 spd manual. So it has the LS3 6.2 liter/ 426 hp. engine in it, rather than the AFM L99 with 400 hp. I pretty much ran the whole 11 miles in 2nd gear to keep it wound up.
