1000 horsepower

This is my car. It is a 75 corvette with a highly modified frame, coil overs on all 4 corners, massive brakes, 12 point roll cage, overdrive transmission, 540 cubic inches of race motor. I has brodix 360 cc heads, one of the best heads going, the block is set up to handle 1500 horse. I topped it off with a 8-71 blower and twin 850 double pumper carbs.
I drive it on the street, show it occassionally and generally just enjoy it.
It puts out 1000 horse the way I drive it on the street but could be tuned for more

I am surpised you found this hidden down here The car is basically hand built by me. I am a fabricator and own a well equiped machine shop.
I have built drag motors all my life. I put about $20,000 in just the motor for this thing.
It is a ball to drive but I need to watch my speed, Here they impound cars doing over 50 KMPH above the speed limit. It would kill me to have my car sitting in a field for 7 days while theives strip it, that plus the $7000-$10,000 fine.
It gets about 12 mpg overall driving and I can hardly get it above a idle without breaking some law.
I am build a wild dodge truck right now and have the motor ready to go in April or May.

This is another one of my toys.
850 cc of race motor, 68 HP and super light weight.
Advertised at 0-85 mph in 5.1 seconds.
I am too chicken to test that out. I just putt around on it


Can't find a picture of my bike.

I don't think I would like to ride that at 85 mph regardless of how fast it got there. Sure looks fun though.

This is a the truck in stock shape. It is a 97 dodge ram 4 x4 in mint shape. Now it has bushwacker fender flares, big tires and matching rims and in the shop is a very hot 365 motor, totally done along with a brand new non computer controlled trany. The motor and trany will go in in another month or two. The motor should push about 350-375 horse. I will also redo the suspension with a 2 inch suspension raise and long soft travel springs.
I am looking for a nice picture of my Night Train harley
My truck

It is a nice car Honeysuga and draws the crowds at the shows. YOu would look good driving it.
I do love getting out and cruising on the Harley.. It is totally black, every black and just thumps along. Gets great gas mileage too.

I am afraid I put more miles on Rio then I do on the corvette, the harley or the 4 wheeler. But isn't that how it should be????

I am a horse person above all the other toys and if the wife said I could have only one everything would go but Rio.
