Holy hell, I saw that Previa pickup recently and wished I got a picture. I'm trying to remember where (I haven't been in the Raleigh area since September so it's migrated since then..)

Crazy stuff, that.

FWIW, i dig the rear end on the c7... it was the rest of the body that i didn't care for (when I saw the various sketches). I hope it surprises me... It'd be nice if the C7 was smaller in demensions than the c6 (i know that won't happen)... c6 just feels like a boat to me

Inside the cabin, yes.

As a car all together? Na son... C6 is wider, but not by much. You could say they are in the relatively same dimensional field (exterior).

Are you trollin' me over ~2 inches in length?

Corvette is also wider.

So then who wins the "Corvette is smaller" argument? We gonna take this to the 3rd dimension and see how much volume these cars occupy?


My phone doesn't like the chevy website, nor does this computer, so I can't see what Chevy says the specs are for C7.

Yeah, if it was a couple grand cheaper, I'd fly up there one day and buy it.

...but not for $4500.

Wow--that's actually nicely done. $4500 is pretty steep though, even for a well-done conversion.

what's hard to make out is that he has a more traditional Mustang-style pipe to the left of the fart can (but it's only a single )

Never dyno'd...
Built to be a show car...
Never run on a track.


Poor car. At least most 90's Hondas get the shit ragged out of them on a regular basis.
I don't get the show car scene. I go to shows...Hell, I went to a Chevy show yesterday. I just don't have any desire to clean a car to perfection and sit in a hot parking lot all day while other people walk by and look at it.

Ive seen that video before. It's not that it's not for racing, it's not even for driving. How do you out that thing. It's like a gi-joe with kungfu grip. It kinda works, but it's not real. You have to wonder if the motor is even built

idk about the turbos being plumbed into the back of the scoop.

i also dunno about the carbs being simultaneously tuned for turbo and blower operation.

the modifications necessary for a carb to operate under pressure would seem to conflict with blower carb operation.

also, sounds like shit. i believe the choice of cam here is suspect. probably never been over 3k rpm.

Does this make you all feel that much better giving mr. 300zx a hard time?

How about mr. Camaro? It's what he wanted to do and it looks like it does it well.
