Default 71' L-88 Corvette Replica (kinda)

Its been a while since I have posted a build but instead of posting all the build pics, I have posted my build site below and then will post new pictures as I go. Update on the engine is I plan to use BluePrint Engines LS 427 FI 620hp. Not quit there yet but hope to have this on the road by the end of summer. Thanks
