Let’s take a peek inside this Corvette. It doesn’t look that it will be a quiet ride, that’s for sure. There are two large tanks of nitrous here, lots of carbon fiber tube protection, and a bottle of Meguiar's detailer spray. Okay, that's the obvious stuff. The not-so-obvious might be the fact a driveshaft isn't connected to the transmission. Upon doing some more research, it seems this car might be all together, new for 2017.
Like I said earlier, this big-tire Corvette is wild looking.
If you’ve seen the Street Outlaws show a few times, you can’t forget Shane McAlary’s 1974 Chevy Vega and his co-driver, Bob, which is the creepy dummy in the passenger seat. Hey, to each his own. This car has gotten a lot of respect because, while it doesn’t look like much when compared to the other competitors, it hangs with the best of them on the show and has seen as high as #3 on The List.
The Vega runs on a 437 cubic inch small block Chevy engine on methanol fuel, and is boosted by a ProCharger F-3R-121 blower capable of over 2100hp.
“Daddy Dave” David Comstock found his way onto the #1 spot on The List early on and held it for a while in a borrowed, yet wickedly fast 1996 GMC Sonoma S10 pickup with a huge motor on nitrous. He eventually parted ways with the truck’s owner and decided to build his own car, a Chevy Nova, dubbed the “Goliath”.
As promising as the nitrous-powered Goliath seemed, it was only weeks before a bad wreck at an Amarillo, Texas track left Daddy Dave hospitalized. In fact, the worst of the injuries was a concussion from a fully charged nitrous bottle that shot out of the window, but not before striking him in the helmet on its way out. Dave was lucky to be alive, and he has no recollection of the accident.
