    The weather looked kinda iffy but I decided to run over to the local cruise night season opener tonight anyway. Glad I did becuase I've never seen one of these before... 1,900 lbs with a 600hp 383 stroker on a full race chassis. The guy had to open the gull wing and stand straight up on the seat and lower himself into it...
    Wow:omg:

    It may be fun to drive, but honestly looks like an ugly, chopped-up, abortion of a Daytona Coupe to me.

    Never saw one plain like that before though. When I see them they usually have a racing paint scheme.
    I always thought it would be fun to have one for a weekend toy.
    Neat little cars.

    The only turn off to me was the lump on the hood. It's certainly unusual but he stole the show. It looks like it would be a hoot to drive...

    I'll take the Charger instead, or that Corvette behind it.

    That thing is KILLER !! ..........I don't have room in my garage. I can't afford the insurance. I don't have a trailer. It will be hard to get parts for. It won't get good fuel economy. What would the neighbors think? It takes two people to open the hood. The cops will hate that more than my Viper. It doesn't look comfortable. It's loud. It doesn't have A/C. No cupholders. ........I'm desperately trying to talk myself out of one of those!

    That looks awfully out of place with the Hot Wheels gold color scheme ! I saw the one posted in the INDE video above this weekend and it does look perfectly at home on the track !

    I remember when the cheetahs were racing in the 60s'. Wickedly quick but handling and endurance problems kept them from being really competitive..... then there was the odd looks of the car...

    I thought the opposite when I saw the pics: cool 60s custom look, but with that wheelbase and power gotta be insane to drive.
