Like I said in other threads, I've seen a lot more abortions that look far worse than what Paul did here on this very site. I think it looks pretty cool for what it is.

What's up with the rivets? Looks like they were extras from the P-51 bike they built. Not feeling it. :(

Dammit Paul Jr. you ride a bike from now on.
Pouring rain = bike
blizzard = bike

there should be a law of turning true beauty into straight trash.

Look at the countless other that have done the same exact thing. nothing new at all.

That looks awful, and I'm kinda disappointed. I respect the work that he does when he builds a theme bike, his creativity and attention to detail there are impressive. On this though, if it weren't for the company logo, I'd never guess that it came from Paulie. I'm not entirely sure what he was going for, maybe an airplane theme or something. But whatever it is, he didn't seem to do a good job carrying it through.

He probably would have had far better luck turning it into a Firebird, but lots of others have already done that.

I really like Junior's bikes. I think he really nailed it with the Cadillac bike. But it didn't work the other way this time. Rivets? Tacky. The polished panels clash obnoxiously with the graceful lines of the Camaro. And the whole unsymmetrical pattern of rivet lines give it a patched-together-like-Frankenstein's-monster look. He should have chosen something a little closer to his genre, like perhaps a rat rod, or even a classic hot rod. Something that would allow for a little more creative latitude. He has a lot of talented people at his disposal. If you're reading this Junior, I really admire what you do. But this experiment missed the mark in my estimation.

Are you out there Fbodfather? Would really like your take on this one. Although I understand there is a product placement issue as well...
