Monday: S10 Xtreme LS6 T-56 Burnout FYE.

Watching a gross display of horsepower is probably the only thing better than the actual act of building a vehicle with such mouth watering abilities.  Today I bring to you a 1999 Chevy S10 Xtreme with a 2003 Corvette Z06 LS6 hiding under the hood.  Hanging off the back of the all aluminum V8 is a T-56 6-speed manual transmission that sends power out to the 275/40/17’s.   This really is a great way to start a Monday. Maybe every monday will begin with a burnout video…. hmmmm.

Travis Pastrana Vs. Mount Washington Video

In the interest of awesome videos, I feel obligated to post up this one up for the dedicated 1A Auto Blog readers as well.  It is a video of Travis Pastrana (Awesome rally car driver) planning for, and then racing up Mount Washington.  It will likely be the best 5 minutes of your day, so you will want to sit down and watch it immediately….maybe even twice.  FWIW, much like the Pikes Peak hill climb, these people are crazy for racing this close to a multiple thousand foot cliff.  Just sayin…..

Can’t see the video? Here is the Link:
