In this week's "Car Country News" (the first with news from the new american auto industry), there is a picture of the Tiger Shark.

Quote: "Corvette is once again setting a new performance level for it's marque with the Tiger Shark. Based on the aluminum 427 LS1 V8 engine, it has been bored out to 7.0 Liters, is supercharged, intercooled, and attached to a 6-speed manual transmission. It's 18 inch wheels are launched by the 742hp engine and stopped using Brembo slotted brakes".

Sorry, I don't have my scanner with me, but it's yellow with a new front end and new hood that breaths.

I'll save it and post the photo someday.... Unless somebody wants me to mail it to them to post.

I'm not joking, nor do I know anything else about it. I think they wanted to say that is is based on the aluminum 350 LS1 engine, mored out to 7.0 liters, to be a 427.

Speedy,

If you send it to me, I'll scan it, post it, and send the original back to you. Unless you know where I might get a copy out here in California?

I got my scanner back, so I'll post in a few....

I did mail one to somebody in Texas, I didn't know I'd be getting the scanner back tonight.

Thanks!

Sounds interesting. I can't imagine GM warrantying a car like this.

Do you ever wonder if the guys who write these pieces get a deduct from their pay years later, if these rumors turn out to be unfounded. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_rolleyes.gif

There may be truth to this story... we can only hope...
