The BatVette

 The BatVette is a 2004 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 and will mostly be a fun Grand Touring cruiser that I hoped the WideFox would have been.  I don't plan to modify it much because it has almost everything done by previous owners. 


The drivetrain is OEM and hasn't been modified.  It still retains the LS6 engine and manual T56 transaxle.  The previous owner installed a new shift knob and a B&M short shifter for better feel.


On the exterior it is a base black.  The original owner added blue flames to the paint, and the next owner (who I bought it from) added all the Batman accessories.  You could say he is a huge fan of the Bat.  I'm still deciding if I want to further the theme and add red striping to mimic the 1966 Batmobile from the TV show.  Otherwise I will leave it alone.  It could use some PPF on the hood and front bumper for protection, perhaps some window tint, but I have no major plans to change anything else yet.  

The interior is mostly original.  It only has 60,000 miles on it, and hasn't been worn much.  The previous owner owned it 11 years and added just 26,000 miles.  That means the original owner added about 34,000 in the first 6 years.  I hope to do the same.  It has a touchscreen radio with backup camera, and it's better than anything else in our other vehicle.

The biggest thing it needs is the maintenance to be caught up.  60,000 miles is about the time for a transaxle fluid change, the rear-end oil changed, engine oil, brake fluid, etc.  I'll get all that switched over to AMSOIL before putting it away this Winter.
