"Interesting" C5 'Vette

Here is an interesting VWVortex link. It's a late model C5 Corvette with a '53 "body kit". An odd hybrid if you will. Not my cuppa but certainly well done and almost looks like it is meant to be that way. Cool eh?

Viridian Room 2

The first room wasn't all that hard to escape from. Random clicking eventually saw me out of there.. the sequel isn't as easy; but it's no less enjoyable! Have a go... oh, some parts are random!

I Luuuurve this!

Geek OUT and buy this. Love it!
