    What a POS! That must have been the "cool" conversion 20 or 30 years ago. I have seen a few around, and every day I pass one with a midget body on a jeep frame. Too bad it is just sitting out in the open rusting away.....well, maybe it is better it is just rusting away........

    When I was growing up in queens, there was a guy who put an honest to god real dz302 1969 z28 camaro on a k blazer chassis. The car is still around and I see it every couple of years, but when I look at the price of restored z28s now it makes me cringe.

    If it wasn't such a heap, it'd be fun to drive if for no other reason but to thumb one's nose at the purists all retching on the road side...
    Great spirits have always found violent opposition from mediocrities. The latter cannot understand it when a man does not thoughtlessly submit to hereditary prejudices, but honestly and courageously uses his intelligence and fulfills the duty to express the results of his thought in clear form.
