Default The Chevy Long Block BBQ

My daily random post for today is an article off wired about a gentlemen who used a chevy v8 to make a BBQ grill. Probably the best use for it.

Small Block Ford has a few better designed features. Well, compared to the original SBC. LS series Chevy's are another animal.

Horray for pushrod motors. They finance my miata projects

Edit: Pretty cool grill though, haha.

Actually I think the Aston Martins won the GT class this year but the Corvettes won like all 5 years before that. The Audi's always win the LMP1 class or the Le Mans Prototype 1 class.

It must be unreal driving down the Mulsanne straight at 200+ MPH in an LMP1 car at night.
