Wow. That's.... uh, yeah. That is.... not very good.

I'm not being a hater, but what aside from being on a tv show qualifies this guy to be a vehicle designer? The car doesn't need a design, the original design is great as it is, all he did was throw on paint, graphics and new leather which i'm sure he didn't do.

I could have done that. Leave this area to guys like Chip Foose that do much more than change the car cosmetically.

BTW, what's w/ the shot of the door trim? Is he taking credit for the ambient lighting too?

How does this classify as a "Build"? He slapped some decals on the car, changed the shifter nob and put on some new seat covers. Its more like a mod, not a built car.

I watch the show all the time, and love his bikes, but I'm not feeling this design.

On a positive note, I did notice on the preview that he put a Whipple on it!

I'm gonna be mr. positive... i appreciate creativity, and where he was TRYING to go with it, but it was not done well.

I'm a big fan of flat black, and i think the rivets could work, but the side rivets are just the wrong lines to go with the C5. Needs more angles, not swooping curves.

But yea - let Chip give it a try. Even if 89% of his builds are two tone, they always look good.

And Lets go Bears - Beat Xavier.

I think this PJD Camaro is supposed to go with his bike design

It's all about the TV show. Without that, those two businesses would have folded long ago.

Leave the custom cars up to guys like Foose. TV doesn't do a lot of his cars justice. I saw one of his Mustangs in person a few years ago... freakin awesome. He knows how to use the lines of a car in a good way, and really has an attention to detail.

I like the way his two tones kind of stand out as his. I walked up to a '68 Mustang at a car show that was two tone dark gunmetal gray and silver with some yellow/orange pinstripes. I mentioned to my friend that it looked like something Chip Foose would do... and he walked up behind us and said - yes I would and did! Stunning paint work and complimenting color use.

Looks like he took the Bike build off a little far and took the Rivet concept one step further... not a fan, it does not look right IMO.
