800hp biodiesel 1965 Chevy Impala created on Pimp My Ride is worth a second look.

In blogging for over 4 years, I have come across several different topics that are amazing to read about let alone write about, however there are always those few stories that raise about all of the rest that are worth a second look and one of them that I blogged about back in April 2007 over at my first site (Blog) is the famous 800 Horsepower 1965 Chevrolet Impala powered by bio-diesel fuel.

I remember watching this pimp my ride episode when it first aired, I wrote this:
“This was on the first cars in a while that I liked on this show, so much so that I would want something like it as my daily driver or classic. I like the concept, the technology, the look, the entire package and the fact that this impala can go 0 to 60 in around 3.5 seconds, plus get 25 mpg to boot (according to the show). All I can say is, you will see more cars like this either with Biodiesel, Natural gas, ethanol, a hybrid and etc. and that's cool.”

Up ‘til then, there were very few bio-diesel powered muscle cars out there especially one’s that look like this, however this one to me is one of my favorite because it showcases that muscles cars can not only be green and run on alternative fuels and yet still have a lot more horsepower and torque. I’m always looking for that next vehicle that gets me away running on gasoline and this is in the running in general of course.

With seeing this muscle car, can you now imagine Ford, Dodge or General Motors (Chevrolet) putting a diesel engine inside a Ford Mustang, Chevrolet Camaro or someone putting a diesel engine inside a Dodge Viper or Dodge Challenger, that would be cool and it might be the only way to keep the muscle cars around long after the new CAFÉ standards take effect. This was worth a second look.

I wonder if any of these vehicles used either Battery Tender Plus for their battery or the Meguiar's Complete Car Care Kit to clean their vehicle?
