Thought the idea of hot rodding was to make if faster, so you had a cool toy. Not trash it. Why not a "how to squeze a LS9 in your C4"?

No kidding.

Now I know why Freiburger never pays much attention to my car on Power Tour.

Good thing Mike and I didn't stop when he took this picture. We might have suffered the same fate.
He was searching for candidates.

I'd bet the whole idea behind this was to make a 'go-cart' out of a Corvette on the cheap. Simply thrash and remove everything unnecessary to the basics and there you go.

Nothing innovative there and while they are free to do whatever they want, it strikes me as somewhat irreverent and even unrespectable, because unlike stripping down a 34' or 32' Ford Coupe to make it a Hi-Boy or something similiar, they took a somewhat beatup C4, beat up on it some more and then thrashed it like it was a total POS. That's not Hot Rodding and I'm not impressed.

People have been putting Corvette, and Jag for that matter, IRS in hotrods for years, but they don't usually act like bafoons when they trash the donor cars.

Good job. You've alienated C4 owners and will lose subscriptions.
