With apologies to Matt Hardigree, our in-house Texan, this is tomfoolery we imagine every bored Texas teenager with access to a diesel truck gets into. Which is to say all of them. Remember, keep your mouth shut next time kid.
It's beautiful sacrilege, putting a built Cummins 12V turbodiesel into a 1968 Corvette. Ryan Lusk of Iowa-based Low Budget Diesel Performance has done just that, and he's decided to take the car drag racing. Ryan is a great American hero.
