You know how when you were a kid, and you used to doodle wild wheeled creations in your notebooks instead of listening to your teachers? Remember how you thought about how great it would be if you had a "real" version of what you were drawing. If we had to guess, Jeremy Dixon, the owner of this awesome black machine, was one of those kids way back when, only he went ahead ahead and built the dream machine he onceup.

This open-wheel monster (we'll call it the Dixon Big Block for the sake of the post) seats two behind a windshield made from a Mazda RX-7's backlight, is powered by a mid-mounted big block Chevy, puts out close to 1000 horsepower, is apparently street legal (in Florida, at least), and reportedly attracts a wee bit of attention when it's out and about. And though it is listed on eBay, Jeremy is very upfront about this: he'll only sell to someone who will care for it as well as he has, can properly maintain it, and who'll treat it with the respect it commands.

Hell, Jeremy, maybe you should reconsider. Keep the car. Auction off rides in it instead.

      Looks to me as if it should have eight legs.

      gotta lose the 'heartbeat' sticker though.

      Wait a minute: Does the RX-7 back hatch glass have the kind of safety glass (sandwiched plastic) required for windshields?
        • 7 Years Ago
        It doesn't. He goes into that in the eBay listing.

      Yes, I like big and black. Who doesn't?

      wait a minute.. does that have a wiper? maybe for Street legality reasons.
      in an open wheel, open cockpit ..... you should put one on the inside then too!

        The windshield is the back hatch of a Mazda RX-7, so that is a back window wiper.

        I agree with losing the "Heartbeat" sticker; that would be the first order of the day.

      I bet Jay Leno is busting out the credit card and is ready to bid on this one....

      Alex -

      I saw that.... Two minutes after your post!

      That said, I'm not sure adding a plastic film will keep all state DMV's happy...
