Take a couple wheels off and the thing might turn. Still 1500 lbs is a lot to muscle through the twisties. Anybody out there with specs, power, weight, top speed, on a 502 ci Boss Hoss?

I already posted that this is my next ride. Chrysler sealed the deal with a lifetime supply of arm chaps and portable ***** pottys thrown in. I'm sold!

Street legal? Not going to happen. Useless toy for people with more money than brains? Absolutely.



I hope they sell a million of them...our economy needs it.

Default Roasted Nuts by the......

500 HP equals how many BTUs?



After the block and frame reach steady state, you'd have to be wearing an asbesto suit not to burn on re-entry.



Lot's of WOW factor but it will never hit the streets for more than a 15 minute exhibition ride.

Styling by Munch? You just know he is eating his heart our looking at this beast...



When the dude "rode" it out, did it sound like a V10? Cause if not, you could fit an awful lot of some other kind of motor in that shell of a V-10 mockup...
