If you stuck with me so far, let me just mention two other cars that were not Corvettes.

On Monday, Chip Foose unveiled his latest creation, Madam X, at the BASF booth. Madam X is based on a 1939 Cadillac 60 Special four door. The original four-door was rebodied to a two-door format by Marcel’s Custom Metal (Marcell and Luc Deley) and features a removable hardtop. Running gear is sourced from a 2015 C7 chassis and powerplant. The car was built for Wes Rydell.

The next day, the Ring Brothers (Mike and Jim) unveiled one of four cars they had built to reveal at SEMA. This one was a 1948 Cadillac called Madam V and was also built for Wes Rydell. The project utilized four cars in total to create one master piece, including two 1948 fastback coupes, a used 2015 Cadillac ATS-V and a brand new 2016 Cadillac ATS-V, all provided by Mr. Rydell. The Madam also retains many of the technology features from the ’16 ATS-V including the info and media control with full-color display, rear vision camera, Push-to-Start, rain-sensing wipers and even OnStar auto crash response.
