Rowley GTC built by John Pontieri from a body kit manufactured and offered by Rowley Corvette Supply, Inc. The foundation of the car is a 1978 Corvette. The car was built from the frame up and was outfitted with a new engine from Chevy with modern tuned port fuel injection. The fuel injection provides a level of engine efficiency not present on older Corvettes. This 350 horse powered Rowley GTC gets 24 miles per gallon. The lavish interior, enhanced with Connolly leather, Pioneer CD player, deep moulded Italian styled bucket seats and air conditioning provide
a comfort level which optimizes cross country cruising.

John teaches auto body at a vocational tech school in New York. It would appear that his students receive a well rounded education through his involvement in the construction of Rowley's GTC.
