Video of the Week: The Corsica Q-Ship

Video of the Week: The Corsica Q-Ship

Most call cars like this lowly looking Chevy Corsica a sleeper. We like the older school Q-Ship terminology.

Q-Ships were essentially decoy ships used by the British and US Navies during WWI and WWII. They were heavily armed warships dressed up to look like merchant vessels. The trick came with the Japanese subs or German U-boats came up to make a surface attack and were then blown to smithereens by the harmless looking steamer in front of them.

That brings up right back to the Corsica, yes, the Chevy Corsica in the video below. This little killer has a 3.4 liter V6, four doors, junk paint, and, oh yeah, a turbo. It goes 13’s easy, has seen the 12’s and has probably humiliated hundreds of unsuspecting Japanese subs and U-Boats, err, we mean Mustangs and Camaros. It has several neat tricks up its sleeve using factory parts as well.

Dare to be different!
