2004 Corvette Nomad
Posted by vette_lover2004 on Friday, January 30, 2004 3:18 AM
I got this Idea........What if someone were to make a retro Corvette Nomad off of a Z06 vette body. I drew this out and it could totally work. The way a C5 is made all you would have to do is trace the panel lines for the trunk and part of the B pillar and remove that section. Removing that section exposes the trunk and leaves half of the B pillar standing so you can make a support brace similar to the 54 Corvette Nomad wagon. Using sheet styrene you could form a roof and contour it to fit the roof section left from the original. Then make a lift gate to resemble the rear tail sections curvature of the C5. You could use the wagon tail section from the Caprice Nomad revell did a short time back and use the rear profile. It would only take a small amount of scrathbuilding and the windows for the rear section would be flat. That makes for a matched flow porfile, and you could even tuck in the wagon portin to come to a taper as looking from the top. From the side you could keep that famous Kamm Back profile us Vette lovers like so much. How bout it.

I have a resin version of one that Joel Dirnberger did years ago of the Stingray III concept done up in Nomad style. He called it Nomadd III. Looks pretty cool.
