You either love it or hate it. That’s the consensus we’ve come to as there doesn’t seem to be much in-between when it comes to the Forgiato Widebody C7 Corvette Stingray shown at SEMA last week.
We admit that “Aston Martin Blue” exterior color is a little tough for us to go for too, but those curves are so cool! It’s a car that’s totally at home in the SEMA Dub Show and to see it live is to appreciate the look and the workmanship that went into the build. But I couldn’t imagine this as a daily driver.
Sometimes greatness comes from taking a small step. That’s how this stunning 1958 Corvette restomod from Legacy Innovations that we saw this week at the SEMA show came to be.
Chevrolet this week showed 2 other concept Corvette Stingrays at SEMA in Las Vegas.

If you can’t make up your mind whether to buy a Corvette or a Viper, then this might be the perfect car for you.
The owner of this C4 Corvette has done major body work and changed it into a 1996-2002 Viper lookalike. The owner doesn’t say which year Corvette it is, but based on the dash, it looks like a 1985-89 before the interior changed in 1990.
