Don't get me wrong, it's a freakin sweet car. But it's not a drag car, it's a show car. No respectable "drag" car is gonna have ridiculously low profile tires and gobs of stereo equipment and custom interior.

Unless something was done to it... it's 1,000 hp and not 1,400. We've seen this before.

Yeah like for this thing to be called a dragster doesn't that mean that it would have to go down a drag strip. Shoot I haven't even seen it run. Or a dyno sheet to backup the 1400hp claim. All so no go IMO.

Love the turbo and 454 as well as the width of the rear wheels but I hate 24" wheels on this car. To be honest I think anything over 20" is too big but that's just my opinion. I think the all red interior is a bit much. I would have liked to have seen more of a black and red theme like a black widow, but again that's just me. For the most part this is a great build, but please lose the lower grille. Not sure what to think about the spoiler yet. Maybe it'll grow on me. Congrats on the monster build and I hope you can work out the bugs you spoke of in your earlier post.

Unfortunately, he can't get rid of the lower grille - it is the intercooler. They can fog it with a heat transfer black paint though...

Everyone has their opinions. Regardless if you like it or not, this is a top notch build. Extremely well executed. Good job Serge.

This is the sickest, fiercest 5th-gen I've seen in person or in photos!I love the stance cruising down the highway. I'm partial against the rear aero piece, but DAMN this is a sweet ride!

we charge 60 an hour wich is cheap compared to some shops

the plan for this summer is to work out the small bugs out of the car...this winter we will be changing the tranny to make some real
power ...wanted to do this sooner but too much on the go this summer

ive been driving the car around this summer ...here a couple pics

AWESOME work my friend.!! I love to see people creating beautiful custom machines!
I can relate to the "how much does it cost" question. I own a custom motor sports shop in Vancouver, Canada and all we do is commissioned one-off work. The hours it takes to build custom components and make then work well can be astronomical!!!..... not to mention engineering time/CAD work.
The Pro Street chopper in my avatar has 3200 man hours in it ... started from a CAD design, where the criteria was shoe horn a 402 small block into a good looking chopper design... so i can only imagine what it takes to make those wheels fit under that Camaro AND STILL look good.
Nicely executed!!
