That's the best looking conversion I've seen, but it's not my style. It's VERy difficult to blend old school body lines with the 2010 body lines. The work that was put into it looks great though. Good job!

Looks good. Did extend the front cap?

Nice job look forward to seeing the price though.

The kit bolts on exactly as the stock Fascia. All the headlight brackets and electronics are included to make it a very simple install for anyone with a little knowledge. We will be doing installs at our shop in Wisconsin and we will be looking for shops around the country to be installing dealers

Not all that bad, constructive criticism. I think the grill insert needs to be bigger. The down slope of the fascia needs to be lessened and not stick out as much but I guess you need the room for hide aways. Kinda reminds me of the AMC Javelin.

Had a meet n greet with Fbodfather here in utah, I asked about GM doing hide aways. His response "when was the last time you seen the doors line up". True but in this day an age, technology is far more than back in 69.

Don't know why people keep tryin to cross-breed generations... Keep gen 1, gen 1, and gen 5 gen 5.

I personally love the look of retro styling on the 5th gen, (wheels, stripes, misc 1st gen cues etc) but don't try and splice them together like this... It's a waste of two perfectly good cars that are both beautiful in their own right.

IMO

Being the Camaro Love Sharin' guy I am, I JUST saw this car first hand (thanks guys for the invite over)....

The car is very EYE CATCHING! Even in a little town such as the one I live in (and where this car is right now), people drove by and licked up this eye candy of a car!

If I said the car was tastefully done - I'd be lying - this car is BEYOND tastefully, it is INCREDIBLY DONE. It is equal or better than factory quality! I think the fabrication was 150% PERFECT - it doesn't look like a overnight body kit. The hide-a-way headlights were flawless! You may love or hate it, but you can't hate the workmanship of the design, it was one of the most impressive customs I've ever seen with my own eyes!

Those going to C5F should be on the lookout - if you get a chance to see this car, it is WELL WORTH THE LOOK!

I have lots of pics, but I can't share them at this time. They have a security guy the size of Hulk Hogan, and I think he can take me.......
