  1. John Force would have a loud WTF if he saw this contraption. Maybe.

    I would drive that, just to piss people off with the exhaust noise.

  2. Limited perspective review: My Aggie son would find those longhorns highly offensive. And then he would start doing his spot on imitation of Johnny Cash singing “One Piece at a Time”.

  3. So Phil, did you get any ideas about doing that to your truck? I could see you splice on parts of your Sprite…. I know…. fuck me.

  4. I bet that makes a cool sound warming up and in my humble opinion I appreciate the work involved and since it’s his he can do whatever turns his crank that’s what car guys do anyway

  5. That fixes the two major problems with the C3 Corvette. The first is the laid back radiator that does a poor job cooling an engine. With that front end a vertical 4 core could be installed. The second is the hot floorboards due to the exhaust. The headers dumping over the fender solves that.

    I am curious if they fixed the sloppy handling below 60 mph. My 74 Stingray didn’t handle well unless I was going at least 65. With the 4:10 gear the 190 HP 350 ran out of steam at 105mph.

    • Did it fix the problem of not being able to change the #4 spark plug (rear, drivers side) unless you pulled both the engine AND the tranny? (no, not that kind of tranny).

      I had a ’78 Silver Anniversary 4 speed. 12,000 miles when I bought it and had to change out the driver side outside bearing in the rear. My guess is the first owner slid it into a curb and knew about the damage and didn’t want to fix it.

  6. That would be worth driving, just for the shock factor. The DMV would have a heart attack trying to figure out how to class it though. So just class and register it as an OPAAT – like the Johnny Cash song “One Piece At A Time”. Actually when registering stuff like this you register is as the vehicle that holds the VIN number.
