We had a beautiful weekend in Virginia, so I met some of my extended family at one of the local wineries for the afternoon. It's not always easy getting up some of the country driveways and grass parking lots, but I couldn't help but snap a few shots of the car before leaving.

This is my '07 Vette - heavily modified engine, but nice and stock on the outside.

Nice clean highlights in #3. I'd like to see a bit more room in front of it. Give it some room to "move into" the image.

Looks great there, love the color. Are you like me and hating to have to put it away for the winter very soon?

Thanks guys - had to take a little advantage of the nice day and lighting.

Unfortunately, I just found out today that I have a collapsed lifter on one cylinder, so off go the heads and top end to replace them, ugh, money pits...

Sounds like its time for some higher flowing heads and a cam. :lol:

Already has upgraded heads and a nice choppy cam - unfortunately the cam was fubar'd by the lifter. Block is out of the car now - replacing the camshaft, cam bearings, lifters and valve springs, ouch!! :~(
