Ryan Lusk definitely doesn’t care what others think. He found a 1968 Corvette that had suffered severe rear damage from a collision. There was no intention of returning it to factory spec so it was back halved with a four-link rear suspension. It raced with a 396 ci big-block V8 until someone challenged him to go in a completely different direction. The Corvette is now powered by a built 5.9 L Cummins 6BT diesel inline-six connected to a 47RH four-speed automatic transmission and Moser rear end with 3.25 gears. The combo might seem weird but it won NHRDA Pro Stock Diesel Championship in Division 3 for 2009 and 2010. In the video below the car’s best time was 11.88 sec at 129 mph.
