Since I first saw images of this car quite some time ago I've always thought that this is what GM SHOULD have done to begin with. The 1953 ZO6 on their web site I haven't seen before, but that is also really something spectaculr! If I had the money to drop on a 50th Anny, the first place it would go to off the delivery truck would be the body shop for this conversion!
Its just plain pretty!:j
Listen to what Rob is saying! I had seen pics and thought it was an okay idea then I saw it at Carlisle and my jaw hit the ground. The car is absolutely drop-dead, tounge-wagging, heart-pounding beautiful. The fact that they preserve the 53 exhaust tip look through the body as a backup lamp just blew my mind.
I think most of us were a bit disappointed in the much anticipated 50th anniversary Corvette! Although I didn't know what to expect, it certainly was more than what ultimately emerged. We saw this specially made Corvette in Carlisle...it was absolutely spectacular!! It may not suit everyone's taste, but I think it would have been so appropriate for the 50th anniversary option!! Unbelievably beautiful...and so fitting!
Don't give me that crap about seeing it; I've heard this before about other things in pictures and my feelings were still the same after seeing the real thing. I absolutely hate that rear end, which then ruins the whole car. It's even uglier than the Aztec. You could not pay me to sit in that car.
Nope sorry Rob I hate it. The car looks like a bastardized C5. If the car was actually something we've never seen before with retro styling then mabe. Look at the Thunderbird you don't see them making a 98 Tbird Retro they took a 50's bird and made it new.
Now if they took a 50's Corvette and modernized it I think that'd be cool but don't ruin an exisiting model.
