Talking *Drag Race: Chevy Express Van vs ZR`1 Corvette


A few years back, the owners of a Chevy Express van in Nevada made a name for themselves with this video showing their cargo hauler whipping the AutoZone decals right off a passel of drag strip regulars, including a Corvette ZR1, thanks to their turbocharged, methanol-injected 5.3-liter V-8 -- possessed with enough horsepower to pull a 6,300-lb. all-wheel-drive van through a 12.7-second quarter mile. Now they've decided to part ways, offering the van for $25,000 with promises that the Express from Hell can handle grocery getting as well as any, while still showing its stuff at Friday time trials.

Talk about a sleeper! Can you imagine the look on the other guys faces as they get beat by a barn on wheels?
