I think the same guys did like 2 challengers the week they came out. I like what they did with the lower vents

Wow, that takes guts to start cutting up a $35k car like that. To each is own.

I for one really hope the "donk" look does not happen to too many Camaro's.

maybe 26" WIDE....but tall? wow. Nah, not my style. I would like to see some wider meats on the back and some flared fenders. That would be cool.

Thumbs up

IMHO, I think this is what "exactly" the 2010 Camaro needs to look good from the rear. I think it will look good. Just have to wait and see how it plays out.
As for the 26" wheels??? Not for me ,...or that car!

Can anyone give me a little history or background on "widebody", I did a google on it, saw a widebody 1975 corvette, new challenger and a few others. But why are they doing this?

Is it just the flared out fenders, front and rear? looks like Topo is the best at this? Can you provide reasons and anything else... just curious... i think it looks pretty good, minus the rims that come up to my waist. haha

They probably saw that other thread with 26" rims.

It's basically so you can install wider tires with out having to modify the insides of the wheel well. By widening fenders, it can give more room.

I think it's cool. Batmobile style.

I like fat and thick wheels old school more though. Not the thin so much. Maybe if they where black too would look even tighter.

About only thing I can say islooks like the vents are going to look sick but the 26's will offset the good looks with hood looks! Oh well if that what makes em happy than so be it. Hope he's planning on building up the motor since he's putting those huge tires on it. If not won't be any mustange or challenger killer. Just don't know why people are wanting to put these huge wheels on theses awesome cars. Guess some peoplejust have more money than they do sense?

They just wanted to put the meaning junk in my trunk to real terms. That or they want to turn the sports cars into sport duallys! That's what they should do put 4 wheels on back so it be a dually. Can't believe they getting rid off $2000 worth of tires. Not including the rims.

What would really make that funny is if you could put that widebody cammy in the video! Now that would be awesome. If I had any real computer talent I would but that was funny!
