      CnCPics.com probably has a shot of them…

      If it puts down 1000hp, how many ft-lbs would it make? My guess is one scrillion.

    D-Max = awesome. I'm not happy about the stance though. The wheels just don't fill the fenders up very well, and I'm not a huge fan of a slammed musclecar. It needs to sit up a little taller, at least so you can see the upper lip of the rim inside the fender well.

    A long time ago, I had a roommate that was about ten years younger than me that had a total motorhead Dad that was always dialing him in on all kinds of cool cars. One of them was a pristine green '69 Chevelle SS convertible, and my brother who's ten years older than me and old enough to drive one of these when they were brand-new lusted over this car every time he'd come by my house.
    After work one day, we show up at our house and there is a tow-truck unloading a horribly mangled Chevelle that is almost bent in half on the drivers door. I'm terrified as to the state of my friend, but my brother wants to go in and kick his ass, and then go find his Dad and kick his ass too.
    "What kind of Jack-Ass gives a nineteen year old kid a Car like that?!"

      And doesn't keep it for himself? I remember the dumbass things I did with my '56 Cadillac when I was nineteen, it's a good thing I didn't have some badass musclecar, or I would have ended up mangled in it. The Caddy was slow and massive enough to keep me alive. Of course, at the same time, I was in the Army, and drove an 11 ton M113 APC for a living, which had pretty much the same character as the Caddy, but fully tracked. The Army paid me to hoon that thing, and hoon it I did.

        My "get out of town- write when you find work" high-school graduation present was a '69 Nova with the massive I-6 250 and a three-on-the-tree. Great car for a kid, and I hooned the hell out of it too. Well, as much as I could……

    The future surely is here! I love the Cars and Coffee galleries. A nice, outdoor car show where the lighting isn't harsh.
