    The purists and trailer queen crowd at corvetteforum.com would be squealing like pigs. I've crossed swords with them on occasion when they really get stupid.

    I'm not sure if it is on Corvetteforum, but there was a thread on Digitalcorvettes a while back. My brother saw it and started replying the the cry baby purists. It was kind of funny the non purists went after the purists. I got a good chuckle out of it.

    But yes, the purists cry about it. Even though it was crusher bound. I guess I can't even call it that. There wouldn't have been enough steel to crush when I first got it.

    Here are some others as well. These were right after we got it together and started making shake down passes in '09.

    The top one is from Brainerd. The bottom one is from Topeka one of the times. I swear if that timing box wasn't there, that left front tire is off the ground.

    Man, this car is SUPER cool. What an ambitious project. I love hot rods that are clearly one of a kind.
