This ’68 Firebird 400 is here at Blue Sky for an upgrade to the power plant. The original 400 CID engine is being replaced with a 455 and some extra features. This engine sports a Holley four bbl carburetor on an Edelbrock high rise intake. But the even more exciting feature of this upgrade is the March Performance serpentine-belt conversion which replaces the ’60’s era v-belts with a modern serpentine belt. This 'bird will be re-badged as a Pontiac Firebird 455!
After meticulous hours of metal fab, the LeManster is moving on to the body work stage of the project! We've been massaging and block sanding all the panels to perfection. We flush mounted the shaker scoop. That's funneling air to the custom air box and then out the exhaust that were both fabbed up in house. This is going to be one fine LeMans!
Understanding the Collector Car Hobby – the Passion that Drives Enthusiasts
At Blue Sky Performance and Restoration, we are driven by the same passion. According to Kevin at Power Portal, this will be “A seminar on the ins and outs of the hobby, its history and the investment potential.” Sounds like a great opportunity.

On May 23, Blue Sky delivered a project that received a whole suite of upgrades during the past winter. We installed a RideTech rear suspension to replace the old leaf springs. In addition, we installed a new set of coil overs to replace the improper set up it came to us with. A new exhaust system was built in the shop. On the inside a new stock looking 15" steering wheel and a new stereo make for an enjoyable ride. The icing on the cake is the 18" CCW Classic style wheels finished in brushed gold gloss powder coat with gold fasteners.
This is an absolutely fabulous 2006 C06 'Vette we delivered last year with a Supervettes ZR6X wide body kit. . We are proud to be chosen for this work and when the customer asked that we add a small label showing the Blue Sky mark, we were thrilled. This is how the project turned out. The Blue Sky mark is only added by request. To say the least, we are real proud to have it on this car.
