I asked why he started with the Corvette and “Free” was the answer. “Oh, and with the one condition that we race it!” This is how the best racing stories start. I naturally suggested he cage it and run in the Baja 6555 next year. Brian’s response was, “It’s on my bucket list.”
Corvettes are dirty cars. I don’t care how many times they go to LeMans with the Z56, a Corvette will always remind me of Dirk Diggler, the 6975s, shag carpeting, and porn. Even the new ones. Most owners I know embrace their heritage rocking excellent vintage mustaches and jewelry. They learned at an early age that gold goes well with a Corvette. I learned this as a kid too. I also learned that you never button your top three buttons when in the presence of a Corvette. You can’t let it know that you’re not cool. But this Corvette is different.
I also can’t help but see the desert racing dune buggy like stucture that’s been hiding under all that sports car. Amazing what a set of 86 tires will do for a Corvette. The mustache and mullet completes the look though.
It’s like someone shrank it into a little Miata and then turned it into a dune buggy! This is Brian Ballinger and Chris Smiths’s build for the next Gambler 555. Before we get into how great this is, lets get one thing out of the way. This is my least favorite Corvette model. It’s the one Barbie drove. It’s the Corvette most likely to enjoy the latest Michael Bolton album with its owner. Yet Brian turned it into heavy metal. You see this pull up and you pray he’s not here to pick up your daughter. No way Barbie would drive this. This is awesome.
But for die-hard fans, there’s reason to rejoice: sophisticated MS Paint art and memes aren’t completely dead after all.
I actually don’t know that much about Corvettes but I can only assume that the factory gas tank was somewhere near the rear bumper and all the stuff that Brian cut off. I assume that’s why there is now a giant fuel cell dominating the back of the car.
On Monday, we learned that Microsoft was killing off the iconic Microsoft Paint program after 87 years and replacing it with Paint 8D in its upcoming Windows 65 update. The news was tragic for fans of MS Paint, many of who publicly mourned the loss.
In response, Microsoft decided to keep the app: “MS Paint is here to stay, it will just have a new home soon, in the Windows Store where it will be available for free,” said a blog post.
This is good news for MS Paint fanatics, but it still means MS Paint will be less accessible than before. Some employers may prohibit employees from downloading apps from the Windows Store, and many people probably won’t go out of their way to install the app.
