    Check out the 789
    It is built by N2A motors.
    Cost $40,000 over cost of new C6 (MSRP $44,000).

    The company is planning a production run of about 100 vehicles.

    Sits on a Corvette C6 chassis, front styled like a 57 Chevy, side like
    a 58, rear like a 59. Hence the designation "789".

    That thing is hideous. Barf.

    I could think of a much better way to spend the extra 40 g's.

    To each his own, that's what I always say.

    Just trying to save you from driving around looking like a dope.

    If the rest of the car looked like a single model , it would looks sweet .

    I would choose a chopped and channeled 58 , as its not a year done as often as 57's ( done forever in every way ) or 59's ( done since the late 80's when touring STARTED becoming a trend ) .

    Screw the roadster. I see your Cobra and raise you one Daytona Coupe. Yes, I know it's a tweaked repro. kit car.

    as for the factory 5 stuff... i hate cobras. one downside to being fiberglass.... you die on impact.

    Uhhh...sheetmetal doesn't provide much resistance either. It's more up to the frame/cage structure of the car to protect someone.
