   I am the vice-president of Corvette Connection & Performance, Inc. I have been racing for CC for years. My life surrounds my children and work. As a single father I have found income and stress relief in what I love. There was a time that I didn't even have a real car. By making my passion my career I have raced with every car I have designed and built over the last years. My 1986 Corvette is my contribution to Corvette Connection's C4 Research & Development. When we initially purchased this car it had 100,000 miles on the odometer and cracked cylinder heads. This car will remain street legal. The goal was to find the biggest bang for the buck. With Rich's C5 becoming the focus of Research & Development, I am building this car for me! This car is forever changing as my money allows so you may want to check in every now and then. You will never see this car on a trailer (unless I win the lotto or blow it up!) If you're interested in joining our race team or have questions on your car give me an email.
