      Saw this yesterday in NJ. Looks like a kit car but I can’t place my finger on it. Sounded like a V8 and saw that when he went to fill up, the gas filler door was on the center of the rear deck lid.

      Any ideas? It looked pretty clean and corvette-esque

      I'm usually not a fan of body kits at all but.... I... I like most of these. Maybe it's the throwback 80sness of all the cars too.

      Yep, that's just a poorly modified C4 Corvette.

      A C4 Corvette with something like a Greenwood body kit.

      So I thought it could have been but the rear end, at least to me, didn't look right. Every C4 vette I've seen has an angle to the rear where the top of the rear extends further than the bottom.

      Aftermarket rear bumper/quarter/spoiler combo maybe? The rear bumper/quarter panel looks like it has a body line that follows the spoiler down to the wheel well.

      The 84-90 C4s had a concave rear fascia. In 91, the "regular" L98 C4s got updated bodywork that included the convex rear fascia introduced on the ZR-1 the year before. I suspect the car you saw was a pre-91 model with an aftermarket bumper meant to ape the design of the refreshed model.
