    I am scared of this Corvette.

    Once upon a time this thing was a 1966 Chevrolet Corvette.

    Now after it's been totaled twice, this monstosity has been created.

    Here is the article from www.Hemmings.com

    "Love Is Blue" - 1966 Chevrolet Corvette
    by Blown&Blue

    Wow, where to start. I've owned it since new, 40 years now. It's been 'totaled' twice in it's early first year of ownership & was used in drag racing, autocrossing, solo road racing as well as car shows, all while always being street driven. It's gone thru numerous mods and was converted to a mild steel full tube chassis Pro style in 1992. All body panels have been hand built by me without use of 'kit' panels. I designed & painted the body, engineered the mechanicals and designed interior mods. Twin 'Be-Cool' custom built alum radiators w/Spal 10" puller fans are mounted in the rear deck area to cool the motor up front driven by a CSI electric water pump.

    It's currently a 468 ci 671 blown, 2X4 BG 750 cfm Mighty Demon, Brodix-2 aluminum headed, Milodon gear driven, solid roller cammed beast with Carillo steel rods, 4340 crank and Keith Black custom coated pistons. Oh, it also got a NX direct port nitrous rail system with pills up to 500 extra HP. It recently been converted from a G-Force non-syncro dog toothed 5-speed, to a 'built' Turbo 400 and 9" Ford 3:50 rear with Strange axels and Wilwood brakes. A polished C-4 'Vette front suspension and Eibach/Koni coil over suspension. It sits on massive Yoko AVS 345/35ZR15 fronts and Hoosier 29X18.50R15 Street Radial tires on Convo Pro 15X15 rear & 12X15 front rims. The exaust goes thru a custom built tube header to a flat 4 tube collector, thru a cross pipe to all 4 stainless steel 2.5" i.d. exhaust pipes ending in 4 Super Trapp 4'' mufflers w/o diffusers. Sweeeet burbble sound!

    This car did the 'LONG HAUL' on the Hot Rod Power Tour in 2004, then I drove east to Washington, D.C. and south back to Florida for a total of 4,800 miles. So, yes, it's a street car still. I hope you like my 'LOVE'. A total photo history & description can been viewed at: www.cardomain.com/memberpage/591305. Be warned, it's got over 800 photos and will take a little time to see it all.

    Save the wave, Glenn "Mr. Blue" Smith

    It's nothing if not different.

    No, not really. I have nothing else to call it though.

    825 HP
    0-60 in 2.9 seconds
    1/4 mile 9.8 seconds @ 143 MPH

    Not bad for a street car.

    Oh yeah and according to his CD page he was running a 500HP shot of nitrous.

    On destroying things, yes...

    This was once one of the few beautiful american cars. Now it was eaten alive by the "bigger is better" thinking of it's owner.
    I'd love to see that thing taking a corner One thing is for sure: the lunatic oldman can't see a kid crossing the street with that engine. So yes, it good sense to be scared.
    Money can't buy you friends, but you do get a better class of enemy.

    You need to get over the fact that customize your own vehicle with a bigger engine to go faster, and making a custom one off body and exhaust system like this corvette has, is awesome and not destructive. The whole point of building a custom car is making it the way you want it to be. I'd kill for this guys skills and ingenuity. Who really cares if it can take a corner? He built it to go fast on the street and he proved it can do this by driving it from Texas to Wisconsin.
