I am a C4 owner and am not a fan of the C5 body kit on a C4.
Saw this at Bloomington Gold yesterday. Very interesting but looks odd to me.

Looks like a C3 that got caught in the middle of morphing into a C5. [Help me! Help me!]

If you want a C6...get a C6. Why pretend to be something you are not?

I was driving past the show and saw the car pulling out and did a double take. My thought was, why not just buy a C6

Hey! My C3 is not a fat chick!

I bought my C3 because I wanted a C3. Nothing can improve on the C3 look.

This should read...

"Reminds me of a Muumuu on a hot chick!"

It's a cool idea and based on the pictures it looks like a quality job but........

If you can't do the work yourself after you supply the doner car, buy the kit and all the other items you need, and pay the restoration bill what kind of money will you have tied up in this project?

I'm all for personalizing your vette, but personally this ones hard to swallow. I'd agree it's "choppy". Maybe too modern? IMHO the beauty of the c3 was the way it signified the last fleeting era of muscle car styling? The curves front to back made the c3. Sorry if I talk to much, but the c3 is beauty

for what you would spend on that mod, will probably be able to buy a C5 or C6.

I think it's pretty nice; not something I'd do to my C3 but, I'm sure there are folks who will buy it. If I recall correctly, the guy who is selling this kit captured some of the development work on a thread right here on the forum.

I think the front end needs a splitter of some sort to bring the nose high look down a bit.

As far as Corvette kits are concerned; I'm sure we've all seen much worse.

Just go buy a C6. it will out handle and out perform this and will look better than this car can ever think of. Obviously not for me. Now a modern drivetrain in a C3 is a cool car. This just looks like a fat C3
