The Upside Down Camaro is being featured on the Garage Genius episode of Outrageous Acts of Science Wednesday night (August 3rd) at 9pm on the Science Channel!
The car originally debuted at New Jersey Motorsports Park in a 24 Hours of LeMons race two years ago. It's inverted an inverted 1999 Camaro convertible body, mounted on a steel framework, perched atop a $200/200k mile 60 HP 1990 Ford Festiva.
Here it is, the video you've been waiting for, proving the world's first road racing helicopter is also AMPHIBIOUS!!! Please like and share.
Now that we've proven we did what we set out to do (which took thousands of hours of hard work!), please make a donation to the Semper Fi Fund/America's Fund, and make a difference for a wounded veteran through this link: https://fundraising.semperfifund.org/fundraise/team…
In the last year, my Gang of Outlaws and I have been a little too busy building, and have neglected this website entirely, but here's what's happened in 2014:
We built a relatively mundane little Civic race car to actually---you know---win one of these endurance races. The tail fins that we saved from our wrecked 1961 Cadillac racer had been sitting in my woods for five years, so they found a new home on the roof! We won the 24 Hours of LeMons race with it at Gingerman Raceway in Michigan last April by doing 3+ hour stints and driving cleanly.
