corvette engine

I need some encouragement. I need to ask myself, “What would an Apollo astronaut do?”

He’d drink three whiskey sours, drive his Corvette to the launchpad, then fly to the moon in a command module smaller than my Rover. Man those guys were cool.

Corvette XP-897GT Two-Rotor, 1973. A mid-engined prototype with a 180hp twin-rotor Wankel engine which was built on the platform of a Porsche 914 by Pininfarina. It was displayed at the 1973 Frankfurt Motor Show but the cancelation of the GMRCE (General Motors Rotary Combustion Engine) program meant the XP-897 never made it into any Chevrolet showrooms

Trey & Sophie

As Trey was sitting in his last class for the day, his phone sent him a notification from tinder saying it was the girl that’s been flirting with him as he would do with her. He replied back flirting and saying how his last class for the day was boring and how he couldn’t wait for practice to start. Trey is the captain of the Varsity Football team as he plays at the tight end position. He’s one of the best in the area if not the best. And luckily enough for him as class soon ended and he made his way to the locker room, as he sent her a picture of him in his practice shorts and his shoulder pads without a shirt just trying to tease her. While at practice he showed why he simply was the hottest with his speed and catching. After practice ended he quickly changed and made way to his car, a black Corvette. After starting the engine he drove home to find that his parents were out of town due to their respective business trips. While laying up on his bed, he knew the flirting had to continue. Therefore he sent a image of his cock to her. He sat his phone down beside him as he awaited her reply. @xonemorenight

Corvette XP-895 Reynolds, 1973. Designed at GM’s studio under Charles Jordan and William Mitchell, the second XP-895 was built by Reynolds Metals Company modifying the first steel body in aluminium. Instead of the twin rotor engine this prototype is fitted with a 454ci V-8. Chevrolet’s general manager of the period, John DeLorean, explored productionizing the aluminium-bodied mid-engined XP-895 but found it too be uneconomic.
