Bo Zolland's Cadillac-powered 33-34 hot rod – Click above for high-res image gallery

The last time we checked in with Bo Zolland he was rendering a Camaro to do Le Mans duty. Half a year later, he's stayed in the house of General Motors but gone back in time - on the outside, at least. His 33-34 hot rod is beautifully traditional from the windshield back, but mixes it up in front with that cowcatcher grille flanked by integrated headlights and the six hood-bursting pipes.

We wouldn't mind seeing where the other two pipes emerge, because under that hood is meant to be the 556-horsepower V8 from the Cadillac CTS-V. The sound of that lump through massively shortened pipes would be prodigious, and keeping all that power on the road while moving forward might take all of your attention with those narrow wheels. Give us a set of rims from the Cadillac-powered VRS, on the other hand, and we'd be all about it. You can check out Zolland's latest in the gallery of photos below.

      The passenger window is never getting opened in that thing.

      They should make this in a limited run, kind of like the Plymouth Prowler. Make 5000 of them, and price them fairly high. You'd get people to buy them. Hell they made the SSR.
        • 5 Years Ago
        agreed, but precisely because the prowler and ssr made production I worry real honest efforts like this can never make it :/
        • 5 Years Ago
        The SSR probably lost money.

      I dunno, I guess I'm not the target demographic, but to me it just looks awkward; especially the rear end and the back window.
      Maybe you have to be over 50 to "get" this one. I'll pass.

      HOT!

      Gorgeous, but why six intakes on an 8 cylinder engine?
      • 5 Years Ago
      i'll never get why Americans like these ugly things. i guess it's like the Africans and the vuvuzela.
      • 5 Years Ago
      I like everything except the rims and tires. Modernize those elements and you have my money!

      This seems optimized for pedestrian crash.

      Beautiful—but nothing more than a "trailer queen" if ever made.

      Why?

      Absolutely no rear suspension travel, as the rear wheel encroaches the body with about an inch clearance.
      • 5 Years Ago
      I'd drive it.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Yes please.

      By the time this is 'federalized' with bumpers, airbags, wipers, etc... it's be just as neutered as the Prowler turned out to be.

      We can dream I guess.

        If you want a car without safety features buy a custom or kit car, put a chest piercing spike on the steering wheel if you're that dumb

        Also, why are you bitching about airbags? they are invisible until deployed.
