    As a regular reader, you know the automotive hobby can be enjoyed on dozens of levels. Or, on the other hand, a high school favorite could be the recipient of modern aftermarket upgrades.

    Gavin Broome and Matt Verzi were active in the automotive repair industry separately before they decided to team up and create their own unique business plan.

They also used a Performance Online kit to adapt the GM power steering box.

When it came time to energize the wagon, the engine was chosen with good looks as strong a consideration as power and reliability. A Champion large-core radiator with a inch electric fan and custom shroud keeps temps in the green.

    Power gets to the ground thanks to a 4L60 four-speed automatic with a torque converter lock up and a BP Automotive engine harness. Matt from Nomad Tuning, a mobile tuning service out of Orlando, finished the job, adding a mild street tune that generates approximately hp.

    Both Matt and Gavin agree that nothing looks quite as good as the factory Impala interior and Cars Inc. They sent the door panels off and installed the seat covers themselves, following up with matching blue loop pile carpet front to back and a blue vinyl headliner.

    The original instruments were replaced with a Dakota Digital VHX gauge cluster that has settings for modern warning signals that include a check engine light, low oil pressure, high temps, and more.
