This is one of those glorious cars that runs people into two camps like a buzz saw. Seriously. How about a 1977 Corvette with a Greenwood body kit on it, a blown big block Chevy, Predator carbs, a NASCAR style three speed transmission, bright yellow paint, and some wheels that will be controversial in and of themselves. Our take? We freaking love this car. Why? Because it is a Corvette that gives absolutely zero effs. This thing is basically begging everyone to look at it. How could you not.
We were first caught by the paint which seems wonderfully retro and fun and then of course the open gaping hood, the huge BDS blower atop the engine and then those brilliantly simple Predator Carbs feeing all the air and fuel that the rat motor can drink.
We were wondering about the transmission and the ad cleared up that wonderment because it tells us that the transmission is a Borg Warner T-16 which is a three speed and one that was used by lots of stock car races year back. We’d be fixing that part of the car first because this thing needs more gears, right!?
The wheels look straight off the set of Miami Vice and while we do not completely hate them, they are not our favorite. That being said, what would you replace them with and not wreck the overall awesomeness of the car? A modern wheel would throw the whole aesthetic into disorder for sure. Questions, questions!
What do you think? Check out the photos and the ad for the car before answering. This is no circus wagon, this thing is just absolutely great!
Thanks to Rocco for the find!
