Yup. That "restore a muscle car's" bread and butter is "smokey and the bandit" style T/A restoration and whatnot. His shop is amazing. There are usually 8-12 T/A's in there at any one time ranging from simply restoration to LS9 swaps.

My favorite one in there right now is this one. http://www.restoreamusclecar.com/res...ls?fdid=938643 I think he subbed out the paint job with all the flames and stuff but he's doing the rest.

This is the second T/A concept I've seen that they are just adding things onto the nose.... if you want it to look decent, take the entire nose of the Camaro off and redesign it. Otherwise it just looks hideous.
*edit* for clarification, i mean that having the nose stick out past what the original camaro's did just throws the whole thing off.

Still not sure on the trans-am mods, but the hide-aways and grill look VERY nice on that Camaro! I kinda like the tail lights, but would need to seem them lit up before I could say yay or nay.

They look outdated to me, like they were concept cars made in the mid 90s

I think the front of the white one would look good if the grill weren't raised like that. THe rear is horrible. The yellow one looks OK. Eh.

Sorry but, So far every attempt of recreating the firebird by wrapping parts on the current Camaro body is an abomination. A firebird should look very different from the cousin vehicle yet share some cues. I think the problem is that the parts don't flow as a whole so the vehicle looks like a kit car.

The white one looks cool but the chrome grille needs toned down a little.
