• Ref: the Smurfs. I don't mean to alarm you, but there _is_ a female smurf. One. So… I guess… draw your own conclusions there. Or google "the smurfette principle". Better yet, don't. Forget I ever said this.

    • I've heard some theories that Smurfs don't reproduce the way mammals do. I guess they're more akin to fungus? I don't claim to be a smurf expert, nor do I play one on TV.

  • I agree with Boninott and always thought the 1800 was pretty classy styling. Put them together and it appears you have a pretty nice ride. 40K will price a lot of people(me included) out of the market, but I'm out of the Corvette market anyway.

  • I think this thing is simply AMAZING!!! Love, love, love the styling…only thing is the cockpit/roof area looks a little too Corvette-ish…but other than that, I wouldn't change a thing.

  • This is executed pretty amazing. I have been looking at the back window section as well as hood cut line.
    The two care are blended remarkably well.

  • I believe we have seen this car before, when it was included in a comment about someone else's 1800. As I recall, it was from a car show in New England. Anyone else recall that. CRS is bad enough, if I'm starting to create my own false memories, I'm done for!

  • Agreed. I like this way more than I should. The 178k mileage is a bit of a downer, but it looks amazing. Great color choice to boot.

  • I think that the 1800S , chrome speat curves up to the door handle fin top door treatment rather than the 1800E straight spear would look better.

    and what the hell, make it a convertible while you are at it!

  • "This is a 1992 C4 Corvette that has been restyled to look like a 1960s Volvo 1800….because why not!"

    I can think of several reasons. Chief among them is the fact that I want to puke a little each time I see this car (and I've seen it many times on the interwebz). It cannot be un-seen. But maybe I'm in the minority.

    • So, you do not ascribe to the notion that "If I can, I must" in auto restyling? Seems this one is just one brougham badge away from the CFlo badge of approval! 🙂

    • I haven't been a huge fan of this car either, but I do respect the craftsmanship, especially considering one of the cars was made of steel and the other made of fiberglass.

      I'd really like to see this with some 16" basketweaves, which I imagine would look more appropriate.

  • The best ones never really go away! Note it's likely the same seller – three years later…


  • I was thinking "maybe the builder should have styled this thing to look like an earlier Vette instead of a Volvo" and then I realized how much the original P1800 looks like a 53-57 C1 Vette…so perhaps the builder was TRYING to make a Faux C1 and it just turned out more 1800ish so he/she went with it?
