    Like ''Big John's" car more, and yes there were many fine early vettes set up for strip action. Got to remember that back in the day these cars didn't have the big collector price tags they have today.
    Muscle or sport is a fine dividing line sometimes, and yes a '60s vette with a 427 and a muncie certainly packed a lot of muscle!

    Probably anything like that done today could get the owner shot by some people...

    It looks like a severe backwards rake but that could be due to the angle of the photograph. Otherwise I quite like it. There's plenty of restored classic Vettes out there already so it's good to see something a bit extreme for a change.
    I hope the owner actually makes use of that blown & injected engine and those slicks for the purpose that nature intended.

    well, i dont like gassers in particular. what i like in cars is craftsmenship that are put into them. this one seems to be built realy well. ive seen more gassers around, some are cool, others just slapped together. wouldnt drive one myself though.

    Can't actually say this is 'my cuppa tea' - anymore than a 1930's thoroughbred like a Bentley is - however I do appreciate something different, well engineered and finished - A Vette a sports car? - well as they come out of the box it is only a 'sports car' through American eyes! If comparing with American sedans and even 'muscle' coupes then perhaps yes (but in an American way)
    Not a Muscle car? how not? how can something that will perform in a straight line as well (if not better) than any hardtop or coupe but actually go around corners better be dis-qualified as a muscle car. Any doubts take a look at Jim's 540 powered 9 sec street legal C2
