Awesome pics and nicely done! Welcome
Thanks so much Bull. Thank you for all of the work you do here and thank you to all of the vets here for your service!
Sweet ride! I love the B5 Blue. You have a amazing looking cat! Congrats. Welcome to this forum. Lol the other one sucks! So tell us what’s your first mod?
Thank you! I've got some black badges to replace the silver ones on the fenders. Then I want to improve the driveability a little...Barton, CDV, 3.90 rear...and probably something to help out with wheel hop but I haven't decided which option yet!

Welcome aboard and great introduction and damn I was born in 1963 Berea and only was their 3 months before my father was transferred to his new job. I had a 1997 Jack Piner KTM 200EXC which was an awesome hare scrambler from the good old Penton Days.
Thank you! Did you have the blue 1997 LE Penton tribute bike? I've still got mine...the first pic is setting up a display we did at the local HS. The second pic is my buddies John and Jack Penton stopping by for a visit! IMG_9927.JPG IMG_4339.JPG

Welcome to this great forum from SW Florida! Beautiful Hellcat you got there!! Now, let's see that '68 Impala!:)
Thank you! The Impala is a longgg story...basically, I put it in storage when I left for grad school, then the job in CA, then starting a family...and 35 years flew by and it's still in storage...deep storage! :oops:. It's a black/black fastback, 4-spd with original paint and some cool options. At one point, the original owner located me and told me the background info...he worked at a Chevy dealership in Columbus and special ordered it to be his street/strip family car. Currently, it's got some lacquer checking, a little rust, and some mild moisture issues, so the issue is restore it or keep it as a survivor. I'll try to dig out some pics from pre-storage but it might take awhile. Thanks for asking!

Greetings! I've been a lurker on both forums but it's time I introduce myself. I've been elbows deep into cars/motorcycles/boats since I was born...in fact, legend has it when I came home from the maternity ward in '63 I was riding on my mom's lap in our '57 fuelie Corvette. Dad always had a wild project or two on the burner and I've happily continued that tradition. I've had lots of muscle cars over the years, and I still have a 1968 COPO 427/425 L72 Impala hanging around. After graduate school, I got my dream job as a project engineer for Edelbrock during the late 80's and early 90's. Since then, I struck out on my own, starting a family, lots of projects, etc. I also collect vintage dirt bikes, predominantly Pentons and Husqvarnas, and I've got a group of buddies (Team Pentovarna) that I enjoy building and racing the bikes with. We've won multiple AHRMA championships over the years and the AMA Off-Road Vintage Grand National Championship all 4 times we competed for it.

As far as the Hellcat goes, when they started teasing us with Challenger concepts in the mid-2000's, I was really interested in seeing the real thing. And when the SRT8 debuted in 2008 I went straight to the local dealer and expressed my interest, only to get a condescending reply about why they weren't interested in helping me...and I had bought from them before. Fast forward to 2015 when the Hellcat debuted, I still had a Challenger on my mind, but had recently made a few purchases and wasn't ready to make another. Finally, in 2019, the timing and all of the options and components that I wanted came together...B5, M6, Black top/hood/decklid, forged black wheels, red calipers, etc. I contacted a different semi-local dealer and they were very easy to work with...so I ordered it! It came in last May and my wife, college-aged daughter, and I all love it...and yes, they both drive it, M6 and all. I posted some pics in the "Garage" section and I'll try to do a review on it pretty soon for other prospective buyers. Finally, I'd like to thank everyone very, very much for sharing all of your info and making this such a pleasant place to hang out. And if anyone would like to BS or pick my brain about cars or motorcycles, please feel free to contact me anytime!

I also have a 69 427/425 in my garage next to my Redeye
