After I realized that my engine is not original, the transmission is not original, it became senseless for me to try to stay with stock, but instead make it mine.

Still in process! LOL!

Cool '63


Mark Rife’s split-window ’63 Corvette was featured on the cover of last month’s issue. Rife has owned it since 1972, and he’s road raced and autocrossed it almost continuously since then. Rife also won the PHR jacket at our Indy event, and was just edged out in Del Mar by Mary Pozzi. The ’63 features an LS7 crate motor, Tremec five-speed, and suspension from a ’96 Corvette.

It sounds so simple: Take a less-than-perfect vintage Corvette; add later- generation power, chassis, and cabin features; finish in an eye-catching color; and then drive vigorously.

I can't leave anything stock so this works for me. I'm glad there are those Melvins out there that restore cars to original but not for me.

Cool 1 fine '59


Brent Jarvis, owner and builder at Performance Restorations built this '59 Vette a while back. It was one of those cars he built to show off exactly what he and his shop could do. It's not a trailer queen car show static ride, it's a real race car.
