First I would like to thank NASCAR03 for introducing me to this site.
Now, I would like to introduce Miranda, my 1969 Stingray.

Miranda was Miss June in ICBCs Calendar for 2019.

Here is the story ICBC wrote in the Calendar:
Gavin Mah’s 1969 Corvette Stingray, “Miranda” is a real head-turner. This Corvette was a barn find from Nanaimo BC in 2005 and started its restoration to meet National Corvette Restorers Society standards, but in 2009 he decided that a restomod was better suited for city stop-and-go traffic. Gavin dropped in a Doug Herbert 383-cu-in stroker engine with a Holley Sniper EFI so he could lay the rubber on the road. Wilwood and SSBC braking system with a modern hydroboost stops Miranda on a dime. Ridetech adjustable Coilover suspension allows this Corvette to be driven on the road or at the track. All original gauges, stereo, vacuum headlights and wiper cover restored to original working condition. The cockpit features black Italian leather interior with silver diamond stitching to compliment the custom paint. Gavin says. “It’s nice to get the thumbs-up from people who appreciate the Corvette.”

And here are a few more shots of her:

I look forward to getting to know the forum.

Thanks for the warm welcome. FYI it was a barn find in Nanaimo BC in 2005.
Rats were living in her then and nothing worked. I did almost all the resto mod myself.
This is a month after I bought her and she was up and running.
Still a 20 footer at that time.:)
