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

Do you make that in hybrid? That's a carbon footprint with style!

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.

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

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.
