There are two kinds of classic car owners: those who let their classic car(s) sit idle, and those who actually drive their old machine(s). Count this classic Corvette L88 owner among the latter.
Better yet, it was filmed.
Armed with a Turbo 400 automatic transmission and a factory claimed 430-horsepower coming from its big V8, the car’s quarter-mile time of 11.49 seconds at 121 mph pretty much confirms the long-standing acknowledgement that the L88 really produced almost 550-horsepower.
Of course there were some risks in taking this rare Corvette to the track, such as possibly blowing up the engine, or simply losing control of the insanely powerful coupe and hitting the wall. Tell us, if you were the owner of an L88 Corvette would you risk it and take the car for a trip to the quarter-mile drag strip?
