Butch King's Blazer

With a name like Butch King, you have to drive something pretty macho. An F-150 Raptor, perhaps? A military-spec Hummer? No, what's required here is a Chevrolet Blazer.
...and not just any Blazer; this is no soccer mom-spec urbanite. Butch's Chevy features a bespoke tube chassis with unique double-wishbone suspension, which helps to deploy the power from the monstrous 406ci (6.7-litre) NASCAR-esque V8 under the hood. He uses it for hillclimb events. Bonkers.

You're welcome! :)
Search for it on YouTube, there's a fair bit of footage of it nailing up various hills...
