I believe it's a C5 converted, I recall seeing a thread about it a while back.

I actually don't hate it. I would need other angles to be sure.

Yes it's a kit built on a C5

Its a C6. The electric door latches are a dead giveaway. Add to that the dash is C6 spec.

Wait, I've seen that car. I swear that pic was taken at the Make A Wish car show in Ruidoso, New Mexico.

Yeah thought it was a c-6, the roof looked C6 to me and after you mentioning the door handles that just confirmed my thoughts.

Smithers, unleash the hounds!
Edelbrock E-Force 1593 & Magnaflow exhaust for that healthy American sound. Before SC 354 RWHP, after SC 484 RWHP. That's all I can do and still pass California smog.

To each their own. I would not ruin the beautiful lines of a C5 but I can see where it would appeal to some.
