      You guys should start doing build videos. You have the space in the building. Maybe do craigslist specials. Like add a turbo system to pumphreys car or better suspension to the mustang GT. It would be funny watching the installs for sure.

    His mechanic buddies??!! Lol how about Mike Westwood of Alamo Autosports San Antonio Texas and the Legendary Corky Bell founder of Bell Engineering Group and Cartech Had A LOT to do with the development of the 3000 Gt right down to the special Mitsubishi Heavy Industry upgraded turbos that Mike Westwood found for him and the custom upgraded intercoolers that Corky Bell personally designed and engineered for him and the HKS electronics that were provided by Alamo Autosports because there was NO WAY TO TUNE a Mitsubishi ECU in those days but then again Hennessy never gives credit where credit is due sorry but I worked for a performance company that dealed with him and he was never an innovator just another guy who took hard working tuners and fabricators great ideas put his name on them without giving proper credit

    I'd never imagine that I'd hear a MURICAN with a more annoying and ridiculous accent than today's mumble rappers... But here he is, on my screen, yelling with his stupid mouth and destroying a really good series. And for the fans that may come to his rescue: I bet you're from Alabama and you're screwing your sisters.

    Sorry but because of that retarded and cringe as fuck fit this fat idiot had while telling us to hit subscribe in the most idiotic way I have ever seen. Yes I did hit subscribe, which actually caused me to unsubscribe, which I honestly did not want to do. But because of that retarded fit that fat idiot had, I just felt obligated to. That was not funny nor entertaining, so please never let him do that again

    the venom makes sense, probs has shitty warranty though. Cuz getting that level of speed out of a v8, there has to be some witchcraft in there and a hell of alot of pressure, so blocks probs wont last too long, but then again they did design it, but I doubt he'd leave much performance left in that engine.

    • Pyjus Čůrus

    People... Buy performance vehicles. Few cars hold up years afterwards and are still desirable, a corolla will never make you money over 20 years, a 3000GT, Skyline or any professional performance packed car will either still be fun enough to keep driving, or it would be an easy sell and degradation over years are alot lower. Not to mention smiles per gallon.
