Garfield Heights Auto Shop Services Rad Ride
This stunning green car is a great way to celebrate the season! This 1997 C5 Corvette was built by Mallett Cars and is race prepared with 550 horsepower. It belongs to Mr. Bob Abdow who is a client at our Garfield Heights auto shop. Mr. Abdow purchased the car when the vehicle was coming off the GM executive program because he has a need for speed. Other than using the vehicle for cruising around town in the summer, Mr. Abdow occasionally takes the car to race tracks like Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio or the Nelson Ledges Road Course southwest of our Solon location in Garrettsville, Ohio.
However, his favorite memory was participating in the 2000 Silver State Classic in Ely, Nevada. Mr. Abdow loves his Corvette because it is Fairway Green and is the only Fairway Green Mallett Corvette in existence. On top of that – it’s fast! It can do zero to 60 miles per hour in 3 seconds and has a top speed of 197 mph with the roof off. Of course, racing cars is best when shared with a friend and it looks like Mr. Abdow has the tiniest co-pilot we’ve ever seen!
For participating in our Rad Rides contest, Mr. Abdow is taking home a gift certificate for a free lube, oil and filter change and a free 59-point safety inspection to use on any vehicle. If you think your car is cool, tell us why! Send your pictures and stories to firstname.lastname@example.org!
