    Default Check out this 240

    Not my cup of tea at all. I've got a friend that owns a dealership in Austin and he saw this one at an Auction a couple weeks back. This is not his dealership btw, I just happened to find it.

    Take off half the overdone body mods and it might look OK. Not gonna sneak up on any 5.0's or Vettes with something like that.
    Half the reason for V-8 swaps is "stealth".....

    Good God!! That car looks like some kinda space ship. What's that silver thing in front where the radiator would draw air. Looks like a silver sun-shield that I put in my truck to save the dash.

    Talk about over-kill. Looks like a Z mated with a Porsche that had a Camaro drag car gene pool.

    I can see why the owner wants to be a
    po! Here we have proof that not everybody that ownes a Z comes away with something to show fot it.

    I respect the time, energy, and money that went into that car, but I think the owner built car that he/or she would not want to keep!

    A Z is beautiful from any angle, I just happen to prefer to view from the drivers' seat!

    How can the car be "street legal" and not have any head-lites? They say it passed an inspection. They used to have vehicle inspections here in Florida, the head-lites were one of the items that were checked.

    The picture of the engine is of the massive air cleaner, whoop-de-do.

    Okay, I got something now. The person who "tricked" this out must have been blind. Or at least he was after looking at it. MY EYES THEY BURN AHHHHH


    Edit: Damn that was sad.

    You know I feel bad saying such mean things about the car. After all it is (was) a Z. It's like someone who's had plastic surgery and it back-fired on them. Poor car

    Don't feel bad Vicky, our cars are extensions of ourselves in ways, though this extension is a bit much much like the clothes we wear. I sure see a lot of things people wearing that I wouldn't get caught dead in

    For me I'd have to say the hood scoop has to go and the rear view doesn't do much for me, but the flares are well done, body work wise, and I've always liked Z's with solid headlight covers, I have them on mine, headlights are behind the grill, though I don't see how he gets any light or air through his grill....

    At least there has been some workmanship put into that Z.

    Not like this car, which seems to have been modified with whatever the owner could find in his shed.

    Check out those side finns, which just seem to be tek screwed into the side of the car.

    Obviously the car doesn't NEED headlights. With a hood scoop that huge, the car goes faster than the speed of light. With some Powered by Honda seatbelt pads, it would go at least two times the speed of light. I bet that catfish-inspired front lip adds TONS of downforce for that high-speed cornering around Saturn.
