That’s a Corvette?

YouTube personality Cleetus McFarland is bringing his world-famous “Leroy the Savage” machine more than 2,000 miles from its Florida home base to Las Vegas to be part of the second annual LS Fest West May 4-6.


The stripped-down beast, which looks more like an overgrown, overpowered go-kart than the Corvette it began life as, won’t just be blasting down The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway quarter mile. It’ll be tearing up the autocross and 3S Challenge courses as well.


If you’re not one of Cleetus’ quarter-million Facebook followers or nearly three-quarters of a million YouTube channel subscribers, “Leroy” is a 2001 C5 Corvette that he acquired when it still had just 32,000 miles on it. It has a turbocharged 5.7L LS1 powerplant fueled by, naturally, a complete Holley Dominator EFI system, and makes north of 1,000 horsepower on the dyno.  

Off the Track: Carfax database hits 20 billion records

The Carfax database, believed to be the largest vehicle history database in the world, has surpassed twenty billion records. The rapidly growing resource feeds Carfax products that people use in each stage of a vehicle’s lifecycle – shop, buy, maintain, price and sell. More than 112,000 domestic and international sources that report vehicle information to Carfax contributed to the milestone.


“The amount of information loaded daily into our database and how quickly it reaches the next billion mark is astounding. What once took us 15 years to accomplish now happens every five months,” said Dick Raines, president of Carfax. “Carfax information helps save lives and money. We work hard to make sure the millions of people turning to us for help every day have the information they need to make confident decisions.”


Many records comprising the Carfax database is information only found at Carfax. Consumers, dealers and auto-related companies have access to vehicle history details from a large list of Carfax sources, including vehicle service shops, police departments, auto auctions, insurance companies, U.S. and Canadian motor vehicle agencies and more.
