This is really cool, but I would rather have an original '62
wayner Nov 17, 2012
Now that's a Corvette I would enjoy driving on Route 66 for sure!
David Parenti Nov 17, 2012
@colby. Did you see the episodes of Chop Cut Rebuild, where they built a retro stingray from a C6 I believe?
Colby Church Nov 17, 2012
I've seen many of these. You can buy the kit and install it yourself, but it takes a lot of money to complete.
Adam Thomson Nov 17, 2012
Lovely car
Jason Mosery Nov 18, 2012
Everything works except for the windshield....it just looks odd. It would be interesting to see a fastback version of this...
Skylar Drake Nov 18, 2012
It's definitely neat, much nicer than those tacky LS1 camaro conversions. I agree that the interior could be a lot more retro, but this car is probably a revamped older kit. Think about it, why wouldn't you male it on the C6? Or better, why no top?
Walter Robinson Nov 17, 2012
Refinement. Right Colby, because that word describes the c5
Ada Onwukaike Nov 17, 2012
Pice of history.....ehmm
Colby Church Nov 17, 2012
Pretty darn sexy. The old style combined with the new speed and refinement.
Christopher LikeaBoss Reber Nov 17, 2012
The Camry effect.
Christopher LikeaBoss Reber Nov 17, 2012
I'd still rather have will.i.am's thunder-vette.
Adithya Chandrasekhar Nov 17, 2012
I dunno why, but those wheels remind me of rolls royce wheels
John David Fuller Nov 17, 2012
This is kind of cool!

Like a real 50's vette, that would be worth what you'd paid for it when you got it home.
Tyler Tarbox Nov 17, 2012
Yeah me either. Plenty of other cars for $100K I would buy instead
Matthew Mazzarelli Nov 17, 2012
This is one of those cars where you add 100,000 but only get back 30.
David Parenti Nov 17, 2012
It probably costs more than that to build one.
Dave Larby Nov 17, 2012
I wouldn't pay $100k for it though.
Adam Thomson Nov 17, 2012
Lovely car
Dale Schroeder Nov 19, 2012
The windshield and mirrors throw it off. They're just too modern looking, it kinda spoils everything a bit.
Phil Johnson Nov 18, 2012
It's all right, but it's all wrong at the same time. Not a fan.
Lead Peddalin Nov 18, 2012
I hate to go against the grain, but I'm not feeling this.
Dylan Bruder Nov 17, 2012
Awesome I love these
Boyd Boudreaux Nov 17, 2012
Very nicely done
Colby Church Nov 17, 2012
Agreed, this is badass.
Guo-Sheng Huang Nov 17, 2012
Cool ride~~
Kleymenov Pavel Nov 17, 2012
I'd love to add that to my collection.
Cory Allen Nov 17, 2012
This one actually looks really good!
Emil Creed Kleijsen Nov 17, 2012
oh the people I would murder to get my hands on this
Cody Gillard Nov 17, 2012
If you look up the word *badass* in the dictionary there is a picture of this car right under it
Adam Thomson Nov 17, 2012
Lovely car
Rocky Rocker Nov 18, 2012
Na, Don't like it. It takes the two Eras into one and just does not do it any justice...
Waleed Alshahri Nov 18, 2012
Nice rear end.
Colby Church Nov 17, 2012
Love the rear.
Cody Gillard Nov 17, 2012
Ah muscle cars in a way they soothe us
Adam Thomson Nov 17, 2012

@John Quiet not quite
Adam Thomson Nov 18, 2012

John Serely Nov 17, 2012
@adam just be quite.
Colby Church Nov 17, 2012
Lol @ Adam saying Lovely car on every picture. xD

Chris Huff Nov 24, 2012
I starting to question if half the people on here have actually been in a corvette.
Aj White Nov 18, 2012
@Tyler You're a major idiot cuz he didn't say ford was part of GM. What r u talking about?!!!!
Tyler Tarbox Nov 18, 2012
Amer the fact you think Ford is part of GM shows you're an idiot
Jason Johnson Nov 17, 2012
I agree that you don't buy a vet for the interior. However, they desperately need to improve their seat design. If you read any review on any vet, even the ZR1, they will tell you the biggest let down is the lake of feel and hold in the seat.
Dylan Bruder Nov 17, 2012
Yup motor trend said it best you don't buy a corvette for the interior and when your driving it your not looking at it anyways the whole thrill is in the drive
Patrick Schalk Nov 17, 2012
Amer must be the new village idiot.
Tom Ippolito Nov 17, 2012
You don't buy a corvette for the interior.
Aaron Crisp Nov 17, 2012
@Amer Dumb statement!
Amer Tawil Nov 17, 2012
Gm in general makes crappy cars dodge is getting better and ford is the top of the 3 the interior and everything on corvettes is cheaply made
Tyler Tarbox Nov 17, 2012
The interior isn't horrible but for the money you spend on a corvette, it should be much better. Especially on the Z06 and ZR1.
John Serely Nov 17, 2012
I also agree. The interior is a HUGE letdown for the kind of money. Hopefully chevy will fix it with the C7
Dave Larby Nov 17, 2012
I have to agree the interior is a let down.
Adenis KalashNikov Ruci Nov 17, 2012
Damn carbuzz. Fix yo' shiz on iPad. Twice this happened
Adenis KalashNikov Ruci Nov 17, 2012
Choco Brown. What a colour
Colby Church Nov 17, 2012
You guys are crazy. I have a 2002 and love the interior. People exaggerate too much. It's very comfortable and it's real leather btw. The shape of everything inside is really cool and molded nicely.
Tin Nguyen Nov 17, 2012
It that leather or vinyl? I agreed. The interior is still cheap looking.
John David Fuller Nov 17, 2012
The interior lets it down in my opinion. They should have made it look more retro.
Adam Thomson Nov 17, 2012
Lovely car
Matthew Crighton Nov 18, 2012
Why did they stick that dinky little thing in such a good looking car? Seriously, I could probably pull more HP out of a blender.
Adam Thomson Nov 18, 2012
lol im 13 years old
Walter Robinson Nov 17, 2012
Ah, the good part
Chris Huff Nov 17, 2012
@ ryan. Probably 3 1/2

There's my precious LS1. :)
