Great 8 “Transitions” Corvette
Great 8 “Transitions” Corvette – PowerNation 2017 Week #41
Make suure you tune into this week’s PowerNation as all four shops have real world practical tech you can use, plus Katie will feature one red hot gorgeous custom ’54 Vette that was a 2017 Ridler Great 8 award winner. Owner-builder Larry Griffey of Larry Griffey’s Hot Rods & Restorations will share his vision of the “motor-rama” Corvette he thought GM should have built.
In a 6 year labor of love, he did lots of body modifications to get the stance he wanted and dropped in an LS-1 with an Edelbrock supercharger making around 580 horsepower. That striking color is a three-stage Matrix paint called “Soul Red”. Pro Auto Interiors handled the interior and it is, of course, Great 8 quality. He named it “Transitions” because of all the changes it’s been thought. By the way, this is Larry’s 2nd Ridler Great 8 award winner, amazing work for a small Knoxville, Tennessee shop!
