    Default Diesel in a C3?

    You have to see to believe:
    YouTube - turbo diesel corvette

    This is not my doing. It is interesting though.
    Presently between Vettes. Read about my 75 L48: http://tiresmoke.org/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=12

    Even in today's economy there, clearly, are people with 1) way too much time on their hands and 2) entirely too much money

    Also, they're not very sharp as they used the normally aspirated 6.5L GM diesel rather than the current, lighter and much more powerful 6.2L Duramax.

    Holy crap....imagine the front springs that guy had to put in that thing to keep the front end off the ground!

    But...only in America!!
