It's like the entire package.

Rubber-bumper C3 Corvette? Check.

Side pipes? Check.

Five-spoke, possibly off-brand mags? Check.

Number meatballs? Check.

Oh, and now we'll rallycross it. Our readers rule.

You guys are really too kind.

Of all the super cool stuff around here, I am blown away that you featured the Dirtball... Thank you.

I guess, I am going to have to up my time line for fixing stuff so it lives up to everyones' expectations
