I like it. I also really like the Trans Am conversion pics I have seen. Why not. Damn, check out that house in the first post. If I could afford a house like that I think I would take a ZL1 and have it converted to T/A.

I don't know why, but that screams Photoshop to me.

You know it could be good if it was truly custom and I don't doubt that the work was done in a quality way. Having said that, it still looks cheaply put together. That "GTO" just screams kit car and just doesn't look like all those new prefab piece fit well together.

Beside, why a GTO conversion when there was a GTO available not too long ago?

I wish the madness would stop. The only thing I like about this example are the wheels.

People should have let the ruining of the GTO name end with the 2006 model. Poor GTO :(

If you all had a choice to buy a standard SS or one of these conversion Camaro's for the same price you would choose the standard SS? You guys are tough to please.

Honestly? I would buy the standard SS, if GM really wanted to build more retro versions of their old pony cars then they wouldn't base it off of one platform...at least I hope they would be smarter than that.

The GTO did NOT share the same platform that the Camaro/Fire bird did. They were always a land yacht and that's why my dad loved his Judge when he had it, very spacious and still had a great rumble.

We will never know.

Not bad, but if the TransAm that's been used as a hero car in a movie a few years back was actually released I'd have been driving that.

I think it looks awesome! I would rather have this done in the fashion it is with the GTO name on the side than some of the abortions that people do to their Camaros and keep the name.

I would bet that most people who don't like it never knew what a GTO Judge was.

I have been to their shop and they do some nice work. But I honestly don't care much for the GTO. The trans ams look better in my opinion but the Camaro will always look best

Tough crowd here. I think the body work and styling look pretty good. The "6T9" and "goat" emblems are awful. The price is a bit out of control for what you get. I think I'd rather have one of their trans ams with T tops! I think it's funny that they are using actual Pontiac emblems but apparently can't get away with using GTO emblems. GTO is kind of a generic term used on different cars.

I had inquired about the trans-am conversion for my camaro on the kit that you can do yourself, but to have a custom shop that installs them professionally and was advertising them. Anyways the Kit was average, OK but not awesome...so I proceeded to ask the gentleman what happens to the parts that come off of my car ? like the headrests, front and rear bumpers and anything else? the guy laughs and says I keep them of course, that giving them back would be stupid. He also states that he owns a collision center out of his shop and so that is where the additional parts would go. Now if the Kit cost 5-6k (I checked) and he's charging 10-15k depending on my options that he told me, "WHY IN THE HELL WOULD I WANT TO GIVE HIM MY PARTS FROM MY CAR ???" especially for free ??? I mean I am paying full price for his parts "right" or am I being unreasonable ? any thoughts?
