One badass Vette

Sorry I don't have any pics, just a quick story to tell. A neighbor/friend of mine just got his '03 Vette back from the shop, after 6 weeks of engine, suspension, exhaust and air intake work. He swapped the stock 350 for a 427, and it dyno'd at 505 at the rear wheels. The dumbass let me drive it. HOLY MOLY, words can't describe it!!! I'd never driven a car with that kind of power and handling, and I must admit, it was VERY addictive.

I'm still knackered from the exhilaration of running that beast up through the gears. The rear tires (Kumho) would spin from 1st through 3rd gear.

Re: One badass Vette

Sounds tasty. Is this an MTI creation?

By the way, THIS THREAD IS WORTHLESS WITHOUT PICS!

Some of Mark Hamill's best work.
No, really. He made what...like five movies? Anyway, THAT was one of the best ones. Right after the three Star Wars films, it's right there.





I'm just kidding. Besides, he made more movies than any of us ever did.

Okay, now I've gone and made myself curious...

[pause]

...sheesh! Check this out: Mark Hamill (IMDB.com)...dude keeps busy!
