Default The Snowmobile as Featured in Corvette Fever Magazine

For Sale - The Snowmobile built by Doug Plette and Featured in Corvette Fever Magazine (http://www.corvettefever.com/featuredvehicles/81278_1997_doug_plette_chevrolet_corvette/index.html). This car has over $100,000 invested in it. I purchased this car recently, and I now realize this is too much car for a girl to handle. This is a guy's car with an engine that roars. This car is a monster with statistics that show it ran 725+rwtq with nitrous. (Only two bottles of nitrous has been run through the motor.) This is a one-of-a-kind very special car for the collector, racer, or weekend driver. Meticulously maintained, loved and pampered. Always garage kept. Although this car is a jaw dropper and is great for my ego (which is why I bought it), I need something more practical. Offered at $38,000 OBO. Newer trades considered.

These are just some of the modifications. I have a complete page ofperformance mods, appearance mods and statistics. All this is Greek to me, but my mechanic verified that there is $100,000 invested in this car. This is a truly unique opportunity. I am willing to negotiate on the price, especially since I have found a replacement Vette locally with a manual transmission that is calling my name. I have become quite comfortable driving the Snowmobile; but this is a guy's car. If anyone would like more photos, I can email them to you. The photos on this site do not give the car justice.

Hello, just wondering if you could send some more pictures of the interior and engine to [email protected]. What does the car need, does everything work, especially the A/C. Thanks.
