Last night on SPEED’s Car Warriors, the Challengers (red team) took on the All Stars (blue team) in the customizing build-off of two 1976 Corvettes and walked away with the win (as well as both cars). The All Stars vision for their Corvette was much more over the top then the Challengers, but it was the road test that probably sealed the win as the All Stars car was deemed “unsafe” to drive by all three judges. Our friends at SPEED sent us some additional photography of the cars taken during filming of the show and we’ll share them with you after the jump.
Having done an engine pull on a 79 Corvette, I particularly enjoyed watching the All Stars trying to take out their Corvette’s stock Chevy 350 with the transmission attached. They were a little less concerned with damaging the engine compartment than I was, but they certainly did get some points for the speed in which they did it.
We’d also like to give a shout out to our friends at Zip Corvette who provided many parts for the show. We saw the Zip logo on the 4-post lifts as well as on the spoiler that used on the All Star’s Corvette.
I found the show to be an enjoyable diversion from my regular TV viewing and so I’ll be checking back with SPEED on Wednesday evenings at 9pm for further episodes of Car Warriors. If you missed this episode, check out the replay on Sunday afternoon at 1pm EST and again on Monday at 10pm EST.
