    Default 1990 Morrison Challenge Car

    Well, I picked up four Dymag Gen1 wheels and an 89 VET1806 short block Saturday. Smiled all the way home on my 2hr drive........

    I have a 1990 World Challenge Mobil1 Morrison car #99 that I am restoring. Can't get enough of this stuff!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Taking my project to Bowling Green in May and then on to Carlisle in August.

    Congrats! I sure wish you'd consider bringing it to CruiseFest in June. I'd love to see it and I bet I'm not the only one!
    Good luck with it regardless... and by all means - enjoy!

    I may be able to bring it. I'm having my 53 judged in June as well. As long as there's not a scheduling conflict, I may end up at the Cruise Fest.

    You're having your 53 judged sometime this month, right? Good luck with that. And please let us know how it turns out.

    Sad that we couldn't pull together CruiseFest this year. I'd love to have seen the Challenge car.

    Haven't got the 53 back together 100% yet. Trying to get two other 53's done for customers right now. Hope to have it done before it gets cold again. Then, if I don't sell it, I'll get it judged next year.

    The Challenge car will be done before spring though. Adding onto the shop in July. Need the extra room badly.

    When I grow up I want a job in your shop.

    Do you have any photos of the '90 Challenge car you can share?

    This is a pic of the car at the C4 Gathering last month in Bowling Green. Doesn't look like much at the moment. The pic at the bottom of the story board shows what it will look like once restored.

    Thank you for sharing the photos, Brett! I'm looking forward to seeing it returned to it's former glory!

    Just picked up an 89 Challenge car last week. Unconverted car. Charcoal Grey. Looking for more, if anyone knows of any.

    Here it is. Unconverted Challenge cars are relatively unknown to most Corvette enthusiats. This car, or another unconverted car, will eventually be sold to a friend of mine, who gave me the lead on this car. Only after I have bought at least one more, though. I plan on buying as many as I can find, 88-90 unconverted Challenge cars. Anyone know of anymore I can purchase????
