History
Owned for about 15 years but really wasn't driving it since I bought a 2010 Jaguar XKR in 2013. Too much of a pain in the rear to start, to run, to sit in. But too beautiful to sell, so I decided about 5 years ago to make it a more user friendly car. This turned into a pretty substantial restoration with a lot of modifications. Installed a new built (over 500hp/550 lb./ft) engine, fuel injection, flush windshield glass, C4 Corvette seats with full leather interior including the dash, high quality respray, headers, new exhaust, cooling/fan upgrades, transmission and shifter tweaks, ... It still has a few kinks but they are getting worked out. The car is outstandingly beautiful and ferociously loud, wakes up everyone in my neighborhood when I start it on Sunday mornings.
