Back of C5

This picture is was taken during the last summer.

Below is our unusual modification...Very few street C5 Corvettes in the US have Momo steering wheels.
.
Jennifer executed the installation with precision and attention to detail.

.MOMO steering wheel.passenger view    The Momo wheel has a very nice feel to it. The wheel is wrapped in a comfortable suede like material that enhances the ability to grip the wheel. The smaller outer diameter provides a larger angular input to the steering with the same arm motion, thus decreasing steering response time. The sense of 'control' of the car is greatly enhanced in comparison to the OEM steering wheel.

Here is a side view...

We have modified the cooling system a little with a Ron Davis radiator.
Very Cool...

And it is wise to use a set of wheels and tires good for the season of use, for safety and performance, wet or dry.
Winter and Summer use.
