Its true. Everyone knows Vette drivers can't drive.

I'd take the van, more storage room. I'm all about practicality.

Wish you could see the tree during the launch. Did the van get a handicap, or was the 'Vette driver just asleep?

It does seem that while the van gets quite a jump at the start, once the Vette driver wakes up she quickly closes the gap. It look's like she's just about caught up with the van by the time they hit the traps. If both vehicles were piloted by competent drivers, I think the Vette would have won that by a fair margin.

It's still fun to watch, though.

Now thats just ******* crazy. I remember riding in my dads VW bus when I was like 6. I wouldn't want to go over about 55 in one. 520HP in one of those is just madness.

Now that is great! Spanken Sie Subaru? Ja, Ja, Ich spanke Subaru!
Looks like it spanks a lot of cars, even in the corners.
