2nd annual Metro Cruise
#1307789 - 08/28/06 03:53 PM

Grand Rapids, MI is trying to copy the Woodward Dream Cruise. They are doing a good job at it too. It has grown a lot since last year. Saw cars that I never thought I'd see in person. Vector and Noble M400. Wish The Noble owner was around so I could ask to see the engine bay.

This is last year. Kinda ho hum w/o a ton of traffic.


This is the same spot just down the street a little this year. Non stop burn outs.



OMG.



'84 w/ VR6 swap. I saw the car earlier with the badge on the back. I wondered if it was legit.

Made him pop the rear.


I know Texas Realtor will like this one.

Heck yes!

One of my dream cars. Find a shell and you too can have one for 150k.

Go Baby Go button.

It's N/A but I still like it.


This is for Elky. Not as cool nor big as the one I posted last month though.


And to end my day.

Wow! A VECTOR! That's the first REAL picture I've ever seen of one by someone I know vicariously through six degrees of separation on the intraweb.

You've got tastes Todd.

LMAO! I nearly pooped myself when I saw it. I was just walking around and glanced over and was like oh kit car for a fraction of a second. Then my vision faded to black after I realized what it was. LOL! Never thought I'd see one. And the W8 version as opposed to the heavier slower M12. And BTW just 21 W8s were produced (17 customer cars and four testing prototypes)!!!!!!!!! Retailed for 455k!

Yeah man, that's INSANE! Talk about a once in a lifetime photo op! Congrats! I hope you got gooood pix! I'd put money on the fact that the Loch Ness Monster and Big Foot are sighted more than a Vector!

I honestly didn't even realize how rare it was until I looked it up on Wiki. I now wish I got vid of it leaving. I have no idea how long the car was there. I guess I'll have to pop in Basic Instinct to see one in motion. Here I thought my M1 sighting earlier this year was good.

It has to be the same car. I know someone does own one here. Might even be 2 of them. Those look identical. Looks like no plate in your pic when I enhanced it. How many in the US are that color and have those wheels. I think you just get the chassis and build it correct? Has to be the same car.

Reading that I realized the Vector is in Rising Sun not Basic Instinct. Not sure why I thought that. Was there a supercar in BI?

One of the coolest supercars ever built.

The original W8 was by far the hottest of the Vectors IMO. The later ones looked like melted lumps. Feel free to post more of this if you took any!!!

No supercar in BI that I can remember. Could you have been thinking of the Lotus Esprit in Pretty Woman? IIRC the Vector in Rising Sun was a red one. Gawd I love those cars!

It doesn't have much in common with GM as far as powerplant. It's actually a 6.0 liter Rodeck Billet aluminum V8. Not a cheap 350 at all. The 3 speed box only shares one common GM part, the bottom casing, everything else is custom made for the Vector.

Only other 2 I took.

Never said cheap. Just impressive what can be achieved from humble beginnings. Espcially the early ones that were rated to 1000 hp.

Overlooked the link. D'oh me.

And don't go staring at my junk in the reflection! It was actually nice that it started raining. The owner had to put the rear lid down so I got pics of it up and down. Was hard to get a pic w/o a crowd of people. Everyone was jizzing over it. Some might not like it's slightly dated looks and dated wheels but it's still one rare and awesome piece of machinery and auto history.

Dated? Shhhhhhiiii... I'd date it, and hit it, and some more! I wonder what they go for now? IF one ever goes on sale!

I'll leave that for Pimpy and ZZD. Any idea on the donor vehicle for the Mach 5?

I don't think this is the same one, but there's a cool Vette-based Mach 5 here.

No, I have no clue. I don't recall the interior being anything that great. Not the best kit job I've seen.

I was parked next to the Vector for a while (brown 280ZX with the 355 Chevy). Got to talk to the owner. He told me about a show he went to , down south, where he talked to another Vector W8 owner who had six of them.
