You own a Dusk Edition, don't mess with it. You won't be happy when you're done and you have cheap parts hanging on your car with scotch tape.

I know exactly what a Judge was. A friend of mine in high school had one. I rode in it several times. I never really cared for it and like this "clone" even less.

I know what a Judge was and that thing is a disgrace to the Judge name. It's an effing bastardized Camaro with some terrible body kit. That's it.

Hahaha .... You're mad because we don't like it. Nobody wants this cartoonish looking car. Just because they call it a GTO doesn't mean that it looks like one. Sorry! Give me the old school one. Any year

I don't care if anyone likes them. I don't sell them. I do agree with you in the respect that I would rather have the real deal though. I guess I'm just bitter because I miss Pontiac. It was my favorite GM brand for many years. I had a few GTOs back in the day. Never owned a Judge though.

To each is own as they say.

Oh , alrighty! I understand and I wasn't trying to start mess or anything. You can definitely get you a judge.

Dusk would look good with this color combo for sure tho....



Minus those gaudy rims... would look a heck a lot better with the stock dusk rims

I think the "ZTA" option (http://ztafirebird.com/) is one of the best looking ones and the most easy to actually swap out.

The only issue is that it is CRAZY expensive. Overpriced if you ask me.

As for the "GTO" posted by the OP.......... no, just no

Best conversion I've seen yet. These show up on Ebay from time to time, think it's the same as the one mentioned above.

To me, these look far more out of proportion than the GTO want a be.

I don't know, there are a lot of haters here but give me some T-tops and I'll grow a mustache and have a good ol time.

Of course you could also do this do a standard Camaro for those who don't condone conversion blasphemy and prefer mullets to mustaches.
