Mighty Car Mods Try To Build A Movie Car! Can This Corvette Make The Grade With A Pro Builder?

The guys behind Mighty Car Mods recently spent a bit of time in America last year. You know about the main reason behind the visit, which was to pair off with the guys in Roadkill for some automotive hoonery involving one seriously overpowered Impala and a Subaru pickup conversion that looked pretty good on film (in person, it’s rough. Still cool, but rough.) But apparently that wasn’t all they did while they were Stateside. At some point, they managed to find the shop of Dennis McCarthy, the man behind pretty much every Fast and Furious movie car build out there, good, bad and otherwise. Since the eighth installment of the movie was being wrapped up and there were star cars at the shop, Marty and Moog took the chance to stop in and check out some the real-deal movie cars. But that visit ended up planting a seed in their head, because they wound up conning Vehicle Effects into helping them take a C4 Corvette that looked like it had sat in airport parking for about ten years, and within the span of a day turning it into a potential movie car. This wasn’t going to be a pre-planned build, either…one Corvette, one shop full of take-offs, and McCarthy hovering around to make sure the car was worthy. Remember, this is a movie car, and a lot of Hollywood magic can happen between a Craigslist find and the final product…

    This is like Roadkill, only cool and free. Bonus is they don’t destroy a sports car because they hate it.

    This also is a good example of why Roadkill is still on pay-per-view and MGM is on Discovery.

      OK… MCM is Australian, not british. Roadkill is cool, and they’re not morons – editors of Hot Rod magazine could probably show you a trick or two….

      So maybe careful slinging stupid and moron about, some of it might come back and stick when you don’t even know what you’re talking about, just sayin..
