    This is a Canadian show on SpeedTV. They were showing a car (365 bbi?) that was 'hand built'.

    It seems the owner took a Ferrari chassis and mated it with a boxer engine...

    Made no sense to me. It was like somebody taking a 328 chassis and putting a Ferrari 3.2 ltr engine in it. What was the point??

    I saw that too -- probably more along the lines of resurrecting a dead 365 by installing an available BB512i powerplant. I would have liked more shots/info about the car from the Owner/Builder rather than the over-enthusiastic audio dribble coming from the "rock star"...

    Totally agree Steve! That car was ok but no info was given that was useful and the narration provided by this RAP Star was useless and poorly done. The show is more hype than reality and no way compares to dream car garage. I wont be watching the revolution again. That was enough.

    i saw it, twice to make sure i heard everything clearly

    i guess some guy kit bashed something together, and for that - good for him i guess

    but, i just wish they had used a real 100% Ferrari, and had the same positive comments and enthusiasm
    sort of a waste to have a Ferrari, probably once in the shows lifetime and have it be 'not' real


    the kid driving said ''this is the real deal''
    i said ''WTF is he talkin 'bout''

    I'm sure it will, but believe me - it's not worth looking for. The entire segment with this joker "Kazzer" lasted all of 5 minutes and offered no value whatsoever.

    It had lots of rubber in the rear and a redone suspension.
    My (stock) BB never handled the way this one does. It's worth seeing the program again just to watch it go around the track.

    That was a strange car. The headlights were completely different and you could look over the front tires under the fender straight across the car and see daylight, like there were no wheel wells. Went like crazy though.
