Default Unique C5 Corvette at Walmart

Saw this C5 tonight while shopping at Wally World. I don't care for the rear wing . Thoughts?

Maybe he isn't finished yet. Way to much for my taste.

It appears to be a work in progress, certainly not the way I would showcase the steps of construction. I keep my cars in the shop until the work is presentable. This may be a guy who is taking the long way around and just is too impatient to wait. I know by the looks of the hood, it went from the shipping box directly to the car. No prep work at all. By the application of the "CORVETTE" logo's to the doors he must be trying to make every guy/gal have the chance to see it's a Corvette! The Wing is about as useless as a teat on a boar hog, but maybe he envisions it's a track car?

I wouldn't say anything wrong about the guy....... I too have been accused of heresy by the corvette purists on this forum.

My take is it's just unfinished and confused about what it is.

Looks like someone at Wally world got a promotion to stock boy and went out and bought the most car they could afford.

With all of that junk hanging on it makes me think he is trying to create his own version of a C7. Does have many similarities !
