    I've renamed this one to CCC Project, or Corvette Conservation Corps Project. It was more about conservation than modification, and it's a nod to my late Grandfather who was a member of the real CCC in Oklahoma in the '30s.

    This build's pretty subtle, but there's quite a bit of work in the details. Most of the hardware's been replaced with stainless allen head fasteners.

    New Porkchop chainwheel contrasts with vintage redline pedals.

    Continental Cruise Contact tires in 26x2.0 on Alienation PBR aluminum rims. A lot of tweakage went into getting the fenders to be concentric with the tire stripes.

    Do you still have the Cuda?

    Thanks! The Barracuda went away in 1992. We had gotten serious about autocrossing, and I didn't feel right about cutting up such a nice old 'cuda to turn it into a race car, so we sold it.
