I originally spotted this video over on Jalopnik, and I figured that the 1A Auto Blog readers would appreciate it as well. These guys basically just bake the rear tires off a bodyless Viper. It looks disturbingly fun, and makes me extremely jealous. There is no denying it, 500 horsepower + no weight = maximum fun.
Can’t see the video? Here is the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KBdg-mDx1tM
While flipping through some of last year’s local cruise night pictures, I came across a car that deserves to be swooned over by people other than myself. Under the hood of a 1970-74 Plymouth Cuda, you expect to find a hopped up 340, 440, or maybe the 426 (since apparently everybody has one these days), but this one is unique. It has an injected Dodge Viper engine lurking under the hood with all the accessories in place. I see the car quite frequently at all the local cruise nights and I can’t help but admire it every time. My absolute favorite part about it is that it clearly gets driven regularly. It’s spotless, but not spotless enough to be mistaken for a trailer queen. If I knew who the owner was I would give him a high-five for building such an awesome looking car, but sadly I don’t. The best I can do is post pictures up for the world to be jealous of. So, here you go world. Well done Mr. CudaViper owner, very well done.
