As mentioned, Telly Violetto applied the GM Victory Red (BASF Diamont base and clearcoats over the surface he carefully prepared). When the red had set properly, he applied simple nose graphics in a nod to the factory. The grille is stock and the front bumper fell off somewhere between Vegas and Caledonia. The air dam is also stock, but that neat adjustable piece of aluminum on the decklid sure isn't.

What would he do differently if he were to build the car again? "I would have sandblasted the undercarriage and coated it with some sort of bed liner material. I also would have installed a four-link rear suspension in place of the leaf springs ... both may happen this winter."

So Jeff didn't get the Red Witch. He simply blew its doors off and guaranteed he did for a lot less than the its going price. Was it worth the time, anxiety, and energy? Jeff says: "I ran the car a couple of years ago at the Midwest F-body weekend at Road Atlanta. I loved the reaction of the Viper driver who was pitted next to me. He hadn't given the car a second look until I passed him at 100-plus going up the hill on the front straight. After the session he walked over and said 'What the hell do you have under the hood of that thing?'" What indeed.
