    I thought I'd show you my Corvette that I turned into a diesel racer in 2009. I've had the car in the 6.50s in the 1/8 but life caught up with me and I haven't raced it much at all. Now it just goes to some shows but I'm hoping to make some changes to it over the winter and get it back on the local 1/8 mile track. It has ran 11.42@132mph. Back then we were having trans issues and the car wouldn't leave on any boost. Now that is fixed but I just haven't had the time to take it out and play.

    That's awesome! Great work. I like that you've still got an old school bug catcher and side pipes on it. Nobody would have any idea without it running I am sure.

    Thanks guys. Yeah, I wanted it to look like a regular corvette at first glance. You should hear people when we drive it around or into a car show. It's hilarious.
