    #29 is pretty cool but the paint job is way too much

    • david

      its not a paint job… its actually platinum…

      • Vinyl

        Platum? At $1500 an ounce tht platum coating would be well over $1,000,000.00 not to meantion man hours and car cost $600,000+ that's one expensive car. Typically Crome cars like this are vinyl.

    • Gonasipaherpalitis

    #38 welcome to russia

    • Bubba

      If, by Russia you mean Havana, Cuba, you're right.

    • kbnguy

      so what do you call that bus-truck thingy?? Bruck or Trus?

      • Bill

        Cubans actually referred to it as a "camel". Lots of time you would see people clinging to the side of it. They went out of service a long time ago (if 4 years = 'long time'!). The little yellow three-wheelers are a riot to travel in… make sure you have insurance 🙂

    American Horsepower beats those 4 cylinder-buzz bomb-knucklehead driving things any day!

    • Chim Richels

      Define 'beats'. Yes, many of the dopey teenagers in riced out Civics and Scions are 'tards, but there are MANY four cylinder cars that will 'beat' 'American horsepower' all day long. Of course, I'm talking about a proper road course that test the DRIVER for multiple 4 minute laps and not a silly straight line for 12 seconds.

      Oh and if you are comparing total horsepower (say V8 to V8), there are many non-American cars that will simply destroy precious 'American horsepower' any day.

      On a one man mission to inform the auto-uneducated.

      • tapsnapornap

        Dollar for dollar, what do you suggest would be as reliable, and make as much as horsepower as an SBC? Seems like the Corvettes do alright on the world stage. Just playing devil's advocate here…there are great cars and engines from all over.

        • Chim Richels

          Horsepower is insanely overrated. Important? Yes. The only thing? Absolutely not. For whatever reason, people place waaaaayyyy too much value in straight line acceleration and drag times. Fine, but the REAL test of a car and it's driver is on a proper road course which tests ALL aspects of the car – suspension, handling, steering, grip, acceleration. Hell, I would argue that BRAKING is more important on a road course than horsepower. There's a reason you see 4 cylinder cars like Lotuses, Evos, 914s and yes, Miatas, at tracks

          And yes, Corvettes do well on the world stage, but so do many other cars with V8s with large displacement. You yourself said 'great cars and great engines from all over'. For the OP to say something like 'American horsepower beats 4 cyl cars all day' is just silly.

          • tapsnapornap

            Well I would add some some of my own qualifiers to the OP's statement; dollar for dollar, it is easier to make more reliable, more total horsepower with an American V8 than pretty much any 4 cyl. (I challenge you to a budget horsepower build, my LS Smallblock vs any 4cyl you can think of, I can't think of a situation where you'd come out with a power figure even close to the same for the same money).

            I love sports car racing, and appreciate a well balanced car, but you are seriously kidding yourself if you think that drag racing isn't a test of the car or driver.
