Default Custom side scoops!!!!

ok theres a guy an hour or two away from my house with the ugliest corvette in history. Its disgusting. Hes literally had it for sale for well over a year. Ive seen it on here, on ebay, and on craigslist. Ive always opened it an wanted to vomit. But tonight i saw a few different pics and i fell in love!!! with the custom side scoops only! does anyone know exactly what he used or how he did it? i also like his center stack! im tempted to offer him $5,000 lol because id have to do so much to make the car nice again but then i wonder if its even save able. Anyway, check out the link and let me know. i ant save pics right now so if someone wanted to upload them to photobucket thad be great becuase otherwise after about 6 days they wont work! http://www.sacvettes.com/2000Corvette/index.htm

There is so much custom fabrication on that car it's nuts...at least around the stereo/retracting azz brake light/TV thingy. But, just because you can doesn't mean you should...hideous.

As for the side ducts, looks like a custom fabrication piece again...you could get somewhat close by adding in Z06 ducts and painting them to match the car. They could be from an aftermarket body package, but I haven't seen anything like that I remember.

That thing looks like a rotten ******* banana !! Whoever did that must be smoking some good weed and selling the rest to pay for all the customization. Completely rediculous. The eleventh ammendment, "Thou shalt not desicrate a beautiful corvette by over doing it with aftermarket stick on crap !!! "

Bad choice for upgrades, I would have put all the money into the motor capable of destroying anything on Planet Earth, and still have money left over for a beach home. I am not sure which is uglier:

1) The humungous 2-ton racing wing, which I doubt could ever be functional
2) The enormous C5 rear bumper emblem, which appears to have a life of its own
3) The PITA steering wheel, you must be good to drive with that thing

Different strokes for different folks...
