FEATURED CHECKED-IN RIDE OF THE WEEK
1973 Chevrolet Corvette
owned by Mike Grohmann
DRIVER BIO: “Street raced as a young man, did some drag racing and then move into dirt track racing. Always had built fords but always knew I would be a Vette owner. I was torn between a sports car or a muscle car build. With my current Vette I get the best with sports car looks and muscle car performance. Mid-life crisis is a myth, you finally get to a point where you can afford it and not worry about babies and life getting in the way”
UPGRADES: “GMZZ 454 engine, Muncie M22 rock crusher 5-speed, Baldwin Motion Tribute L-88 hood with Motion flared fenders, new coilover suspension, Steroid cooling system with dual electric fans, stainless fuel and brake lines, steel lined calipers, 3.70 posi rear end with strapped u joints, brand new wiring harness, GT quick fill gas cap, new leather seats and interior carpet, and $65K spent on restoration.”
VEHICLE BIO: “Previous ISCA best in class at Dallas AutoRama”
COLOR: Malagne Beige with Arctic White stripes
Check out this stunning 73′ Corvette we found on the Live feed! To get this car to where it is today, it underwent extensive restoration and modification on everything from the interior to the engine. The end result is a beautiful resto-mod that is ready for both shows and the drag strip. In Mike’s words, he has created a Vette with “sports car looks and muscle car performance.” What a way to get the best of both worlds! Make sure you to pay Mike’s profile a visit and follow his build.

TRENDING RIDE OF THE WEEK
2004 Subaru Forrester
owned by Conner Hogan
VEHICLE BIO: “I’ve had this car for 3 years now, at first I didn’t like it at all, and then it started growing on me. I absolutely love it now and I’m glad I’m actually starting to make it how I want it. It’s currently in the body shop with new STI parts. Once those are on its getting sprayed with a new color. My long term goals for it is to put an STI motor/tranny in it. I love driving it but tired of making the N/A power lol :)”
COLOR: “To be determined”
It looks like Conner has some interesting things planned for his Forester in the near future. We are excited to watch his build progress as he makes the move from N/A to a turbocharged engine. If you want to stay up to date on the progress of Conner’s build, drop him a follow via the link above. Also, shoot him a message if you have any suggestions for paint color! Personally, we are still feeling that Subaru blue.
