Oh yea just Cruise through the members rides in the photo gallery and you'll see lots of inspiration  ;D

Don't forget Photoshop or even just Window's paint can help you mock up a bike to see what you like if you can't find a picture of it anywhere.

Here's the latest Window's paint bike I've been putzing around with-
(Paint not photoshop so it's a bit rough around the edges)

You don't want to change to much. What colour is your C5.

Mine is maroon. I definitely want to ditch the bulky brake light/number plate arrangement.

It's called 'the birdhouse' for the shape it is ;)  I didn't like it at first but it has grown on me now.  I think it fits right in with the early 50's look of the C5.

Yea I like the original 50's ones that are hollowed out better then the solid ones that come on the RE's currently.  They are definitely period correct, but the round 30's ford tail lights are uber cool looking to me  :D

Thanks gashousegorilla, my time in India is coming to an end so I probably won't have as much time to play on the PC as I did here.  But hopefully not too long after getting states-side I'll be playing with the real thing!  ;D
