Today’s car destroying, high speed franchise is Fast & Furious. We like to think we could all be the next Dominic Toretto—have you seen the parking lot of a movie theater after a Fast & Furious movie? It’s hilarious. Refill the popcorn on the way out, park at the edge of the lot and enjoy the hilarity as stock Honda Civics try to drift.
We first laid eyes on this build, a 1971 Penske-Donohue Sunoco Javelin replica, while it sat at Hanksville Hot Rods waiting for the exhaust system to be completed.

The only thing to drop quicker than our jaws when we learned the price of the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 was our collective panties. For the low, low price of $78,995 you can get into the driver’s seat of a new Corvette Z06—and probably divorce court. The convertible starts at $83,995—a new offering on the high-performance car.
