Chevrolet never built the 1954 Corvette Nomad wagon that Harley Earl built for General Motors' Motorama traveling road show, but ever since a few hearty after-market designers have attempted to graft a taller hatch onto the Vette's rear flanks to form a proper two-door shooting brake (British for "sports car station wagon") — often with questionable results. Now long-time Corvette customizers Callaway Cars has announced it may produce an add-on kit for the 2014 Corvette Stingray that would create what it calls the Aerowagon.
Callaway says its modifications would use a custom carbon-fiber bodywork and glass to the Vette, with minimal impact on its performance or mileage. Total cost for making your Kentucky-built sports car into a Ferrari FF fighter: no more than $15,000, if there's enough interest. Which, should enough journalists win a few MegaMillions drawings over the next few months, there would be.
