I don't really understand the first photo, and I really don't see anyone over 15 years old wanting the second one (the mods on the first one must have been done by a 5-year old).

 

BUT (big but) the more I look at the C7, the more I like it. It's as though my mind is tuning out all the un-necessary stuff and focusing on the really fine proportions and overall shape.

The "Dragon Vette" (top picture) is a C6 Corvette whose owner has subjected it to a series of horrible mods over the last several years. The evolution of this monstrosity has been chronicled in blogs like Corvetteblogger.com and Jalopnik for a few years now- here's a link to one of the Jalopnik articles: http://jalopnik.com/...rcharged-update I guess this photochop represents DragonVette 2.0!

The dragon vette is here in town where I live. I used to see it all the time, haven't seen it for several moths though, maybe he's redoing it.

The last time I seen it the paint was at least an inch thick.

 

The guy who owns it is a pharmacist.

So is it supposed to be bad looking on purpose or does he actually take pride in it?

He's really proud of it. I've heard he attended a local art school. 

 

The car has a supercharger on it, it makes around 600 HP.

Maybe it's an anti-theft measure?

That explains it, must write his own prescriptions!

It's a shame that Corvettes only exist in myth and legend....

Give the guy a little credit. At least it's not covered with every bolt on you can find in your local Pep Boys.

He may have attended but I dont think he passed.
