It's a shame it's not an IROC or a Z28! Can you imagine how much faster it would be then?

Re: May COTM ** Winner **

thanks kyle! i couldn't have made the video beforehand unfortunately. during the time the voting was happening the car was filthy and i was so busy with finals that i didn't have time to do anything about it. i search high and low for a picture of the car with regular street tires on it since it has slicks on it most of the time. the one i posted was burried deep in my photobucket account and was from like 5 years ago, lol!

Sweet car, man! You earned it! What makes it even better is that it's street legal lol.

My favorite part is the custom "rs" on the front grille. Awesome.
