I need to reclaim my blog's manliness after over two weeks of purses (cool, automotive purses, but still - purses) at the top of the page. This ridiculous four wheel drive Corvette ought to do it.
Nothin' brings a Tim Allen 'Argh, argh, argh' like a couple acres of polished diamond plate and monster mud tires on a Corvette.
I saw this thing pulling out of a neighborhood near my house and I immediately turned around and gave chase to capture a picture.
So what we have here is a late70s / early 80s Corvette mated to what, a Peterbuilt? Likely a GM truck chassis, actually. The 4WD Corvette of this era has been done before, but not to this level of, ahem, polish. I mean, wow, look at all that polished diamond plate!
Judging by the finished undercarriage and the massive cow catcher inspired front air dam (more polished diamond plate, naturally), this was not made to go mudding. I'm not sure why it was made, but I find it both ridiculously absurd and fully awesome.
I wish I had gotten a picture of that nose, it was a sight to behold. I tried, but the camera phone malfunctioned.
I'm hoping this guy lives in that neighborhood and isn't just in town for the annual Good Guys hot rod show and was just turning around. If it's local and lives nearby, I'll likely see it again adn might get some better shots.
