My "Horsepower Therapy" [COTW 12/30/13]
 
Decided that having a journal would be the best way to track the progress and modifications I have made and will make in the future.

I have always been a Corvette guy, having owned and modified 3 Corvettes, so this will be a new project I am very much looking forward to.

Since she will need a name - "Horsepower Therapy"
