      I first bought the car in July of 2010. Then it was completely stock except for the spray painted VR wheels. Then it had 135,0000 miles and didnt know much about cars and i drove it like this for a year:

      over the course of that year i had bought a AEM cold air intake and had the windows tinted:

      I got rid of the vr wheels and bought 35th anniversary corvette wheels.

      Aside from the wrapped airbag, pretty gorgeous car. What kind of numbers are you putting down?
