Going from zero to 60 mph in one second will make people stop and stare, but Rod Saboury need not drive his 2,400-horsepower, twin-turbo-charged Corvette that fast to grab attention. Sometimes, the Millers resident and National Hot Rod Association driver cruises along Carroll County's streets or pulls up into a McDonald's drive-through, and then heads turn - fixated on the Corvette's dragster-engine sound, fire-red exterior and hot-rod designs. "It's like driving a UFO on the highway," says Saboury, 58, whose 1963-model Corvette is widely regarded as the fastest street-legal car on the planet.

In his regular life, Mike Sibiski, 41, and a father of three, drives a Chevy minivan. You'd never know it from the torch-red Corvette he revs up on weekends. "Always wanted a Corvette," he says, showing off his 1996 LT-4 with a souped-up 335-horsepower engine and six-speed transmission. "It's America's sports car." Sibiski, who's from Bel Air, was surrounded yesterday by similarly swooning car owners and enthusiasts at the Fells Point Corvette Fest in the Broadway Market square, where over 50 Corvettes - washed, waxed, wiped and wiped again - were on display.
