Dragon Vette Returns With Eye-Catching New Color Scheme

Most of the car nuts of the world are all too familiar with the abortion that has come be known as the “Dragon ‘Vette.” Dragons may breath fire, but the only projectile action that comes to mind is some Exorcist-style vomiting when viewing this monster. CorvetteBlogger proudly displayed an update on what may truly be the most repulsive Corvette on the planet.

For those unfamiliar with the evolution of a nice Corvette into a distant relative of Medusa on meth, it starts with a divorce. The “D”-word has made many a car aficionado cry when faced with the reality that their soon-to-be former spouse wants half of everything, including your toys. This gentleman decided to decrease the value of the car with some of the most creative and stomach-churning body modifications known to mankind. It started with a do-it-yourself paint job from hell, a trip to the parts store (for every stick on decal in the store) and a dragon. After adhering the car’s namesake to the hood, the mods have continued unabated.

Until recently the newest mod to the car had been a supercharger back in April of 2010, but it is a new year and therefore time for new mods. The proud owner has now rolled on fresh coat of Atomic Orange paint (or possibly just a layer of adobe clay) along with accenting the rear of car with black semi-gloss. Perhaps it is not black paint – it could be the result of frostbite and gangrene slowly killing the ‘Vette. However, the artist behind the Dragon ‘Vette did add a touch of class by painting the wheels a flat black color.

The Dragon Vette in its previous incarnation. Is the new paint job actually more appealing?

Regardless of how much you hate the paint on this car, you have to admire the man’s dedication to his Corvette, and his willingness to commit any aesthetic crime imaginable to keep the car out of the hands of his ex. Who knows what else this imaginative soul will have in store for Dragon ‘Vette throughout the year?
