Camaro/GTO conversion

I kind of like the Camaro/Trans Am conversion but I think they did a great job on this GTO conversion. A bit pricey @ $79K.

I actually think that looks better than some of the Trans Am conversions I've seen.

Pretty nice work but it's out of proportion and the angles look weird in some spots. The steering wheel with '6T9' and 'Goat'...that's stupid.

I like the wheels a lot

I don't get the whole 'conversion' thing. It could have started out as the single most badass Camaro in the history of time, but now it's just a big fake something else. Curious... do they have to retitle these after conversion? And what is it called if they do?

I'm with you. But I still don't like it.
Although the gauge cluster looks pretty cool.

Wait, what's "fake"? Somebody's trying to fool you into thinking it's a legit 2013 Pontiac GTO Judge or something?

The title is whatever the VIN says it is. No matter what a sticker on the fender says, it's a Camaro.

You can put lipstick on a pig, but it's still a pig. It's just a custom Camaro.

You know what, idk about you guys but I've had people ask me if I've seen the new Trans Am...and showed me pictures of these conversions. So then I have to explain to them how Pontiac is gone and that it's a conversion.

Well, them's some ignorant folks!

I'm not making this up...somebody asked me how I liked my new GT500 last year. I said "...it's a Camaro SS". He said "Oh, but it has the GT500 stripes."

Some people just know squat about cars

It would be fun if they did. Actually, that's a good trolling joke

Since when has Pontiac's counterpart to the Camaro been a GTO? lol!!! I don't dig it at all just because of that reason alone. Now some of the Trans Am conversions have looked so good that they could have very easily been a modern day 5th gen Pontiac Trans Am.

Well, I would think as long as it don't say ZL1 anywhere and because it's not changing brands. It's still a camaro so it wouldn't make a big difference . It's V6 and SS ppl that do those mods .

I don't like it.

I say good on you. The average Pontiac inclined would have picked a Firebird translation and we have seen several of these that look great! This conversion is unique and actually was a concept for the next gen GTO. If Pontiac would have survived they may have chosen to pursue the GTO path vs Firebird with this platform. We will never know.

Some of the prices for the options on the actual eBay listing are a little crazy...

Supercharger roots style $10,985
