Default Anyone produce factory (NEW) frames?

Just sitting here realizing this can be a gold mine for someone! I know of the SRIII frames and numerous other tubular or modified frames that allow you to run C4 and C5 components but does anyone produce a brand spankin' new factory style replacement frame?

If I end up with a new frame I'm going to get one that lets me upgrade the suspension to C4 specs and get a Dana 44 back there. The three that are out there are Speed Shops, Newman, and The SRIII which is the sexiest looking. I'm curious as to which is the strongest. The Mandrel bent Tube or the mandrel bent Channel?

Collier Technologies also claims to have the modifications to install C4 suspension. I cant seem to find any posts about any one actually having one, though. I heard about them through Corvette Fever and they gave them a strong review, but it would be nice to have feedback from real world people, too. I also wonder how much the SS option adds to price, as their website only says "call for details"...

Rowley Corvette has a modernized version of the original frame design. A bit pricey but it's another option.

I just got the prices from Collier last week (Sept 2008 Canadian prices) and the stock frame with stock suspension point is $5995 add $600 for the C4 suspension points, for stock suspension in SS it's $11,639 and SS with C4 suspension it's $11,999. Now in 2008 the US and Canadion dollar were much farther apart than they are today.
