Nothing but The Base
C6 Subtle Perfection
Guy from Summerville, S.C. is the proud owner of a what he calls a
"base model" 2008 Corvette". In our opinion Dave's car is anything but
"base". He acquired the car in 2011 and the first thing Dave did was to
take it to CMX customs and have them build a new deck lid that gave the
car a classic retro look of the late 60's early 70's Stingrays. The new
deck lid also eliminated much of the heat transferred to the cabin in
the hot summertime South Carolina sun.
also installed a complete ground effects package which includes carbon
splitter and side skirts. A Lingenfelter hood and full race spoiler and
custom rear diffuser give the car a very menacing street look. The
turn, rear and fog lights are blacked out to complete the look. A set
of Chrome wheels and side spears set off the blacked out stealth look
of this beauty. The entire look is complimented by a custom ghost
flame paint job by Jamisons Custom Corvette in North Carleston, S.C.
many late model Corvette owners Dave has concentrated all of his
efforts on the "show" part of the hot rod equation. The "go" part
of the equation has been differed because Dave does not want to void
the gold plated GM drivetrain warranty. A simple mod like a retune will
bring down the wrath of the GM bean counters and banish your car to
warranty hell. The LS3 still packs more than enough punch for street
duty as is.
This is Dave's first Corvette and he has done a remarkable job in making it stand out in a crowd.
