“Ricer Corvette” Sells For $23,100 At Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale
There are few videos that are safe for all ages that could induce vomiting in 31-seconds or less, but the cellphone video of a “Ricer Corvette” posted to the web is plenty capable of it. During the recent Barrett-Jackson Auction in Scottsdale, Arizona an attendee caught sight of what could be one of the worst custom Corvettes to grace the web. According to the lot description on the Barrett-Jackson site this “highly modified and show quality LT4 Corvette” features a 6.3L stroker engine and 6-speed transmission. Thanks to the impressive 568 horsepower the new owner can hurry to the nearest home improvement store or parts house to buy spray paint or primer to cover-up the nauseating paint job. Ketchup and mustard are condiments that belong on hamburgers or corndogs, they should not serve as the inspiration for a custom paint job on a ’96 Corvette.
Luckily the Ronald McDonald Corvette only has 1,500 miles on the new 385 cubic inch engine and 26,764 on the odometer, but even the low mileage cannot help this atrocity. The hood stripe alone would be enough to distract the driver, but perhaps the colorblind can appreciate this unique Corvette. Other modifications include the import style rear “shopping cart” spoiler and horrifying yellow accents under the hood. According to the description on the Barrett-Jackson site this C4 has over $57,000 in modifications but sold for the bargain price of $23,100. Hopefully, the new owner will spend $25 at Home Depot or $300 at the local Maaco to improve the looks of this C4. Until then let’s hope the car comes with a large supply of air sickness bags.
