Pumpkin

I have a very large build journal on C5, should anybody care to look at it. The build journal is called "Pumpkin" just click the link below to view. Enjoy.

You have to start some where. How about where it all began. June 29th 2009 when I first layed my eyes on Pumpkin.

I peeled off the shipping tape and removed the plastic from the drivers seat, bolted on my plate and drove Pumpkin back to the dealer from train yard.




Pic's form Preston Chev in Langley BC after I drove Pumpkin back from the train yard.

Down side I had to leave Pumpkin at the dealers overnight for PDI and clean up.



June 30th 2009 the Happy Day. Pumpkin lost in the in-famous Area 51 for 59 days. Became one of the final four in Area 51.

Myshelf and my Daughter Alisha for delivery at my Dealer Preston Chev Langley BC.

One of the first mods was a Hennessy CAI and MSD wires. Sorry no photo's. Eventaully sold the Hennessy and replace it with a Vararam.

Not big on cosmetic mods. Like stuff that you can't see. Go fast stuff! Engine cover painted by my good Bud Ken at Stradle Craft.

The first real performance mod, since the Hennessy CAI was a bust.Replaced it with a Vararam CAI.




BMR Sway Bar installation with help from my buddy Derrek. Paint by Ken at Stradle Craft.



Kind of rolled 2 build sessions into one. Thanks for the help from Bill, Jeremey and James. Sometimes too many cooks spoil the broth.

I have posted the link to MY C5 build journal. The whole build is there. Just too much work to duplicate it on this site, when any member can just click the link to view.

Maybe with some help. Fifty year olds and computers, not so good. But at the end of the day it's all there for everybody to see.
