So, let’s say you’re with a female (or male) that interests you and they start discussing a Chevy Lumina. How fast are you suddenly turned off?
What goes through your mind at that time? For me, it’s 13 seconds and this goes through my head:
Okay, no it’s not. I quickly grabbed that from Google Images. What would really be going on in my head cannot be shown on Auto Waffle as, well, it’s inappropriate. Think explosions, fire and lots of screaming but I digress. So, I’m sure you’ve heard of a Souped up Chevy Lumina Z34 before. I bet it was as Souped up as a certain V6 Ford Mustang was. But have you seen a 300 cubic inch, 400hp Chevy Lumina Z34? Have you seen a 300 cubic inch, 400hp Chevy Lumina Z34 that was still FWD? Neither have I… until now!
The guy calls this..Lumina the “Scorpion Super Car”. I wonder why it’s called a Scorpion. Is it because it’s black like a scorpion? Or is it because the second I touch one, i’ll be poisoned by it and die a horrible death? I’m personally leaning towards the latter. Don’t get me wrong though, I respect the person who built this and I hope it finds a good home and all, but holy crap is this something. It’s definitely a unique car and i’m about 98% sure there’s no other Lumina Z34, or any Lumina for that matter, like this on the road, but… WOW! In the ad, the person says that it took 2 years to build this Chevy Lumina Z34 and has less than 1000 miles since it was built. He (or she) goes on to say that “This is a 1 of a kind head turner and has 20″ wheels and tires”.. which it does! The person goes on to say that he (or she) installed “drilled, slotted rotors on the front and back with Brembo caliper covers” which I assume is to help stop this magnificent beast. The thing is, though, the brakes look absolutely microscopic. And then there’s the heart of the beast. The person says that this engine “is connected to a 1987 Cadillac 440T4 transmission but nothing of whether it’s been rebuilt or not (assuming it’s stock, which I hope it’s not and can actually handle some full-throttle runs). I don’t think these brakes would help stop this beast of a Lumina Z34 much as compared to it’s stock brakes. Actually, maybe it would, now that I think about it. Or not. I don’t know. The guy wraps up this advertisement with saying that the paint and interior is in almost perfect condition but alas, no interior pic. So, if you’re still interested in this Lumina Z34, do know that this person “May trade for motorhome, side by side, boat, car, ETC. I don’t want junk or trinkets”.
You have been warned.
