Nice.. I'd like to make a couple of passes with that, wonder what it'll do.. 720HP, that would be enough motor to put into the 9's, maybe even into the 8's if conditions were right.

If you really want to go fast in something that was built by someone else, then Bezos, Branson, and Musk have great deals for you! How fast do you want to go? Got enough $$$$?

To me, factory supercars are only the playground of the wealthy. To me I take much more pride in making something fast than in buying something fast. Also, doing the work yourself is preferable (at least to be involved in it). Otherwise, I think you're just a poser.

Naw only factory teams race them according to the NHRA super stock rules. Heck you can go to a dodge dealer and get a Dragpak car with an 800 horsepower hemi car and the copos can't compete with their LS motors.

It's been a long time since I have seen one of those.
But it does bring back memories of my sister in-law when she graduated from school she started teaching school and had to get a car and a drivers license.

So a friend of the family was a dealer and took her to the dealers auction. They found a nice blue Buick GS and bought it. Well no one opened the hood, when they got it home my brother opened the hood and there it was a dual snorkel ram air GS 455.

Needless to say a new driver with that motor in Michigan where it snows in winter just don't get along. The next year she got lucky when someone ran into it head-on while it was parked

Here is the 2020 COPO with the LSX motor. I'll post more pics from Dream Cruise later this evening in a old post in the Michigan area.
