Default C5 conversion to '53

I did a couple searches and I cant come up with a site that shows a C5 with the conversion to a '53 body. I saw one in person this weekend and I wanted a couple pictures to show to someone.

anyone have any info?

I saw one of those this past weekend too. It looked pretty good. I didnt speak with the owner, if I see him around will stop and ask him how and where he got it.

Can't understand why someone would take a perfectly good C5, and add $30K to come up with something like that. jmho, but that thing's an abomination.... If you want a '53, save your pennies and buy one.

Try this page:

http://www.vetteweb.com/features/0301VET_Red/

The link www.attcars.com did not work.

I like the white, the red doesn't do it. The three white cars I have seen were very well done customs. Not any different that rodding a '34 chevy coupe....

THe one I saw was black and it was sharp from the front... the back I didnt really care for though.

I just wanted some pictures to show to my parents what I had seen. I really need to start carrying my camera with me more.

Or buy the LoneStar '53 kit and put C5 running gear under it.
