This is the worst of the three firebird/trans-am concept cars.

The yellow camaro with the hide-away front headlights is my dealers car he had these guys build him. I'll (hopefully) get to see it next month when I pick up my car since, unfortunately, I can't go to SEMA. :(

Too retro. Nice idea, but not pulled of perfectly. I don't mind a Firebird mod for the Camaro, but I hate it when it looks like someone just grabbed parts off of old cars and glued them on. To me, that's what this and the Retrokits 5/1 Camaros are. Its the same mistake Chrysler made with the Challenger. If you want an old Firebird or Camaro, just buy one, don't rip up a nice modern car. You'll have neither a cool classic car nor a modern muscle car, just thousands of dollars of bad, fake-looking body work. The idea is to not have the heads you're turning be laughing at you when they do.

I don't understand why people don't like this one compared to the others. This one looks so much better. I like it a lot. My only suggestion is that they shouldn't have the beak grill stick out as much.

I actually like the rear of the vehicle, for the most part. I could do without the chrome bumper, because I think they just look odd on the 5th gens.

The front would also look better without the chrome "beak" trim. In the production stills (sans chrome), the front end doesn't look like it juts out quite as far. The fact that the "beak" dips down lower than the midline of the front fascia only adds to the illusion that it sticks out farther than a toddler's overbite when paired with the chrome "beak" trim.

I like the headlight ports/bezels in the front fascia and I think the hood looks like a pretty faithful reproduction (even though I've never liked that style).

All-in-all, I think it's the best 69 Trans-Am kits to date; but, it's still missing the mark.

Like the car but why the pointed protrusion on the lower part of the grill, follow the same contour of the bumper. If you're going to do a '69 than stay '69 and leave the '70 front bulges off. The front minus the pointiness is the closest to the '69 T/A to date.
