I was surfing Pinterest and just saw the picture of the ugliest and weirdest Corvette I have ever seen. I think it is worth sharing it and ask you if you know something about this model or if you knew it exists?

This is the pin: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/366973069608172881/
This is the photo:

Searching a little bit, it seems it is a mix of the Chevrolet Nomad and the Corvette. The Chevrolet Nomad was built from 1955 to 1972.
Looking a little deeper, there is a forum thread where someone with the same reaction I had when I saw this model of Chevrolet, posted some pictures of this weird Corvette.

Seriously, the car is horrible. Some of the reaction in the forum thread are:

"I like the concept, just not the execution".
"That's fugly" smiley
"oh brother Needs to be lowered too".
"Oh my, I just burped".
"Can't say I really like the back end of the car."
"and... Double Ick..."...

jejeej read more funny reactions here.

It also seems somebody was selling just one month ago a rare to find piece of this C5 Nomad Corvette model at fincars.cc.

It is a shame that the site doesn't say what was the price it was sold. As for me, I would buy this car, no way.

If somebody know something else of the history of this Corvette C5 Nomad, it would be appreciated.
You know what Chevrolet is... "Excellence for All"... ChevyMAN
