    The car blends into the background. Doesn't do much for me.

            A 409-cubic-inch Chevrolet V-8 was bored and stroked to 509 cubic inches, in-house. Edelbrock aluminum heads with Hilborn electronic fuel injection, David Walser nose cone air cleaners, and a Joe Hunt Magnetos billet distributor yield 615 horsepower and 685 lb-ft of torque. The multi-layer valve covers provide the clearance needed for the roller rocker arm valve train and a means of hiding the ignition wires. GP Headers built the 2-inch headers and 3-inch exhaust pipes out of stainless steel. The transmission is a GM 4L80E automatic supplied by TCI Automotive. Griffin Thermal Products supplied the custom radiator and cooling fan components. The stainless steel fuel cell is by Rick’s Tanks.

                      That's a relief. It looked like one of those fake engine cover things.

                        I find the Riddler cars interesting but of no impact on my life. Not something I'd strive for. But if I ever get my Ferrari Daytona (highly unlikely) I'll DRIVE it so I guess I don't get cars as static art.

                          makes me think of winning the lottery and not what I would buy, but what I would decide to build when money is no object.

                              If you have to have the big wheels make them fit the style of the car. The wheels make this one look better.
