Baer brakes took charge of the stopping duties with a Bear Claw 13-inch rotor Track System up front and 11-inch discs in the rear.

American Torq-Thrust IIs at all four corners keep the vintage look in check (17x6 front and 17X8 rear), while Kumho ECSTA SPT tires keep a firm grasp of the road.

The interior was an important factor in the build to Jeff, so Bill's Upholstery in La Habra, California, was called upon to stitch up a custom ensemble with leather seats and door panels complementing the one-of-a-kind carpeting piece featuring special edition Z28 emblems.

Surly Silver pearl stripes adorn the smooth Indigo Blue exterior, giving the car a beastly musclecar look of the '70s era.

A thorough trip around the car might lead one to mistake this gorgeous F-body as living life as a pampered trailer-queen of sorts-this is hardly the case. Jeff wanted to make a point that the car was originally built as a driver, and although it came out much nicer than his original plan, it still gets driven on a regular basis.
