Very Nice!

The rear-fascia looks very svelte in comparision to the cellulitesque rear of my Z06.

The front-end treatment, especially the Le Mans-style center mounted get-out-of-my-way lights is especially cool. The covered headlamps are very Steve McQueen too. It's unfortunate that California requires a front license plate (not that anyone with a Corvette ever actually mounts it, but to add the lights would be screaming "Over here! Give me a ticket!").

I don't usually care for after-market body modifications but this one looks very well thought out and tastefully understated. Others tend to shout "Hey, check it out: My free testosterone level is above 1000!".

i've seen the car in person...(not that one specifically) but i'm not fond of it...the rear is alright but i don't like the front....i'd like the center mount lights if it went with the stock bumper

I like the back, not to fond of the front.

The gas cap is nothing but RICE


Oh and Punk Boy, they do make a kit for the standard C5 front license plate lights. I thinik they look dumb.

That's the side cove I've been referencing on some of my C6 concepts. It makes the car A LOT more aggressive looking.

The tail is much better.

Both of these areas look like what the C5 might have been before the bean counters got a hold of it.




I wish the center-front mounted lights didn't look so "bolted on",
though.

Cavallo is one of only a few aftermarket groups which re-skin the doors. I think this makes a big difference. Even the group which is producing the C1/C5 car doesn't do the doors.

I looked again and it is STILL to bubbly for me.

My fav is the specter rear facia and the extreme/halltech hood or the BP one. Also the SPec rockers....
