For a company that makes premium car care and detailing products, you'd think they'd want a pristine show car to display their wares. Well, the folks at Stuf Products don't think like other companies. So what started out as a stock 1999 C5 Corvette was transformed into, well, not your average daily driver.

For a company that makes premium car care and detailing products, you'd think they'd want a pristine show car to display their wares. You know, a "garage queen" that's babied and protected. Well, the folks at Stuf Products don't think like other companies. Ya' see, they think the garage is a strange place to keep a work of art. Instead, they decided to take one of the owners' actual street cars and build it out. Just like any real car guy would. So what started out as a stock 1999 C5 Corvette was transformed into, well, not your average daily driver.

The C5 Vette is already a great canvas to start with. And they wanted to create a machine that was unique and unexpected while still keeping with the feel and lines of the Vette. Something wild that remained true to the original style of the car. Something wild that still paid tribute to the beauty of the fine touches and minute details. And could be driven everyday.

Of course, the skin was the place to start. So front winglets, side body scoops, and a new hood, supplied by ACI, were added. Then Mike Face Custom Paint laid on a flawless two-tone Purple kandy paint scheme using ghost flames, with traditional pearl flames over top all with paint products from House of Kolor. And ‘lil Louie was brought in to do the expert flame and pin striping work.

The Stuf Vette rolls on Weld wheels covered in rubber courtesy of B.F. Goodrich, ...all bolted to Baer and SSBC brakes.

But, no, this isn't just a looker. Under the hood rests a Magnuson intercooled supercharger and a complete Billy Boat Exhaust System with everything from headers through exhaust tips. And that’s just for starters.

The Stuf Vette will be on display at events throughout 2005, including the SEMA Show in the Stuf Products booth. Then again, you could just see her rolling around L.A. on any given day.

Made by fanatics, for fanatics, the Stuf product line is produced in limited quantities. The Stuf line includes: Shine Stuf- 100% Carnauba wax, Polish Stuf- pure polishing compound with no wax or silicone, Clean Stuf- wash concentrate, Dressing Stuf- rubber/vinyl dressing, Clay Stuf- clay bar and Final Stuf- spray detailer. And every item is personally signed because they’re proud of what they make. Besides, it’s kinda cool. Stuf is sold through Stuf’s web site (http://www.stufproducts.com) and select specialty shops.
