    ***COTM December Rare98Ragtop***

    I would like to thank LS1.com and it's members for this opportunity to introduce "Jezebel" to the world. I nicknamed the car this early on, because she loves to be driven hard, and does not mind being left out in the cold afterwards...LOL. I bought this car from a middle aged couple in the fall of '03. It was stock down to the paper air filter. Here is a pic from the day I picked her up.
    She has came along way since then, and looks quite a bit different now. The day I got her, I ripped out the stock grille and replaced the fender badging with those from a '69 Z28 and replaced the shift knob. That was the beginning of the mod bugs infestation.
    I had a '94 Z28 for about 4 years that was pretty heavely performance modified. I looked for almost 2 years to find this one, as I wanted a six speed convertible to cruise and do the local shows in. This is why this car has not strayed too far from stock in the performance area. The car currently has over 140,000 miles and has never been torn into. When the time comes, it will be replaced with a mild LS2, but the way it runs, that might be quite aways off into the future. This one is pretty rare also, only 71 Cayenne Red Metalic Z28 convertibles were built in '98, and with the factory options this one has, it's really a lot lower production than that (figured in the low teens-confirmed by Scott Settlemire). This car was ordered with the M6, no traction control, and the non-monsoon radio/tape player with the six cd changer in the trunk. On to the mods:

    Performance mods:
    Aftermarket Air Lid
    K&N Filter
    Polished Throttle Body
    Custom Tune
    BMR Strut Tower Brace
    Spohn Subframe Connectors
    Spohn Lower Control Arms
    BMR Adjustable Pan Hard Bar
    Sportline Springs
    Bilstein Shocks
    Drilled and Slotted Rotors
    Lou's Short Stick

    Appearance Mods:
    2002 Factory SS Hood and Spoiler
    SLP Bowtie Grille
    1969 Z28 Emblems
    Hurst Badge
    Stainless Camaro Inserts
    Berger Panel
    Real Carbon Fiber Interior Trrim Pieces
    McEwen Silver Faced Guage Overlays with T/A Bezel
    Flameball Shift Knob
    Widstop Wind Screen from Afterthoughts Auto
    Trans Am Seats with Custom Headrest Embroidery

    I will try to get some more pics up soon. It is a tribal angel cut-out. I do my own vinyl cutting and printing, so it tends to get changed out quite often...LOL...Airbrushed Grim Reaper will be going on next.
