The man who, on the internet, goes by the name Speedycop has unleashed his latest crazy contraption on the racing masses at LeMons: an upside-down Camaro. Speedycop, self-described as "an eight-year-old kid trapped in a 40-year-old body, with just enough talent to pull off my wacky ideas," fashioned this beast out of the sordid carcasses of two vehicles, "a wretched 1990 Ford Festiva and a horrible 1999 Chevy Camaro."

The twist, as its name implies, is that the Camaro body shell is mounted upside-down atop the Festiva's guts, which includes the Ford's notoriously underpowered 1.3-liter four-cylinder engine. As you might expect, its extremely backward aerodynamics and distinct lack of horsepower conspire to keep the upside-down Camaro at the back of the race field. But that's hardly the point now, is it?

See how the upside-down Camaro navigates the New Jersey Motorsports Park in the video below, then click here to see one of Speedycop's other outrageous LeMons race machines.

      This is brilliant. Most car bodies, including the Camaro, produce aerodynamic uplift. Problem solved!

      Speedycop is a legend, having piloted (pun intended) the Cessna 310 fuselage mated to an old Toyota Van, the self-propelled pop-up camper, and the backwards F-150 atop a Panther platform.

      This video makes my back hurt. It's still an ingenius thing though. Back hurts too bad to click the thumbs button Arturo. My Buick says "Hiss" though. If that makes you feel better.
