C5 Conversion to C1?

I recently saw a photo, and link to a website that was a C5 conversion to a C1. I know there is more than one company providing this.

This company used some aerospace technology to develop the design. And I think the result was awesome.

The thread was very recent, definately in the last two weeks, but I can not find it. (Maybe on another forum)

WHERE DID I SEE THIS?

TIA, Carl

That's pretty crazy looking. I saw a nice graphical job on a Vette to make it look an an older one, but never new panels ect.

In addition to the 1953, there was a red, 1962 computer replicated body on a C5 chassis at SEMA ('04).

It was awesome.

Raidmagic,

Thanks for the pointer, but that one I think is really ugly.

C5D,
That's the one! Now where's their website?

Carl

Aha!

I found it. It is on one of the "other" forums. The subject line was not very good. I would post a link here but I do not want to offend any moderator gods. If anyone is interested, the subject line is

"This is my mod"

and the company is:

The '62 is much nicer than the '53. That would be sweet to own.
