Thinking this will be his first and last attempt at custom car building.... I understand he wants to be different, but it still has to be something someone wants to buy. Choppers can be over the top crazy... cars cannot

Car is not too impressive, but its ok. Rivets actually decals? Flat black paint is nice, plus the rims as well. Should have got some -> with some other options for those decals. I would have liked to see actual paint work on the car and not the decals. With his talent, he could have came up with something cool for paint.

the rivets are not decals, those are actual aluminum panels and real rivets holding them on, as are the copper numbers

Not a good interpretation in my opinion. I think he should have been more traditional, perhaps some retro hood scoop or working brake ducts/veants or side fender vents like the second gen cars. The side vinyls are tacky.

Jr. makes an awesome bike... but his lines on the Camaro make me think that show producers said, "Hey, make something cool out of... ummm... (looking around...)... hey, this Camaro!" Kind of like going up to a comedian and saying, "Hey, you are a funny guy... say something funny!" It just doesn't quite work.

On the other hand, to detractors of the design, gotta respect the fact that he is in a position to have the opportunity! I could deride the design all day long... but God knows, nobody is ever going to hand ME a new Camaro, a Dremel tool, a blank check, and some scrap metal, and tell me to make something bitchin!'

The exterior reminds me of a car some kid had in my town, when I was a young'n... rust holes were covered up with riveted- on pieces of sheet metal. Very unique, and not bad looking... but it was an IMPROVEMENT on that ol' rust bucket. A Camaro, being a piece of unfathomable beauty to start with, is not improved with the addition of said riveted panels. On the inside, while a Hurst shifter is indeed pretty cool, it needs to be a color coordinated (okay, my inner Martha Stewart has JUST spoken, for the first time ever!). It LOOKS like an AutoZone purchase, screwed on in only minutes... maybe even no tools required. If its appearance matched the rest of the similar toned trim on the inside (or, better, if the rest of the interior matched the shifter!), at least the interior of the car would be truly badass...

the bikes he makes from bare bones are amazing. but for the "design" that was implemented on this, it seems a bit weak. yeah, its clean and you really can't go wrong with chrome on black, but...it isn't the regular shock and awe product that he normally delivers. almost like he played it safe or ran out of budget. a couple of riveted panels, a new shift knob, upholstery update, and supercharged...and gill delete, it would have been nice to see something different. something that generally sets Paul Jr. apart from everybody else.

...not a fan of this edition

Dont like the car. I think the car looks bad. Paul Jr. should stick to bikes. He does a great job with bikes.

It could've been worse..Junior could've did the (entire camaro) in rivets like the Chopper he named after his wife. If your wondering what he named the bike it's called Roseanne.

The Anti-Venom & Jared Allen was nice. Maybe he should stick to Choppers and let the experts customize cars.
