That thing is sick!!!!! If I had that joint I'd call it the Batmobil. That thing is damn near flawless. I saw a lot of folks talking about how the really didn't like the rims but what I have come to realize with this car is that picture does this car no justice. You have to see it in person to be a believer. Cuz I know how wide my back tires are already so I can only imagine what 26s w/ a 7" lip would look like on that thing. Goodness!!!!!

Rims are way too big. Although if your going for the dont have to jack up the car to change the oil look then you are perfect.

Just my opinion, not worth much but there it is.The rims do tuck up in the fender but the body is sitting too high. Tire sidewall is too short also. Doesnt look meaty in the rear. Nicely put together just not my look.

You definitely pulled off the look you wanted. I like it in that respect. Personally, I'd stick with 22's, maaaaaaaaybe 24's. The 26's make the care sit so high off the ground. If the widybody covered more space towards the ground to make up for it, than this would truly be a magnificent car.

I looks like something from oakland before certain residents let it get banged out at the sydeshow.

Cver the speakers with grills, and find some way to get the body closer to the ground (extension or dropping the rim size) are my only suggestions.

Great job!

The widebody looks nicely done. I am curious to the work underneath the paint, however. Anybody that does any kind of bodywork, especially on older cars, knows that what is lying under the paint is as important as the shiny stuff everyone sees.
Not my choice of wheel style, looks like a wheel more for a luxury car than a sports car but looks good none the less.

What would you rather see a "nice" set of cragars. Those are meaty.

I am assuming a few thigns on the tire size they have used, but mounting those 26's hasn't raised the car as much as you may think. They probably raise it 1.5 to 1.75". To me it is exagerated by the already 4x4 look of the stock camaros ride height.

That is by far the best custom engine cover I've to date. I wouldn't so big on the wheels, but to each there own. Everything else about the car is awesome. Good work!

You can't please everyone I think it is an awsome built car for SEMA. On the personal side I don't care for the size of the rims but again for SEMA they work. Also just a little curious why the dash was left stock for a custom car.

Body looks good, wheels would only look good on a stagecoach with horses pulling it. Please let the giant wheel craze END!!

I LOVE the rims. Like someone posted a few pages back, it is your Camaro, your style! Looks great! If you are like me, doesn't bother you if people love it. :P.

I only wish I had the money to buy a Camaro, then on top of that, add extra mods to it!

Looks great

Looks great but I think I would just buy a brand new vette for the $60k it would cost you.

Buy and brand new vette and you will still look like every other vette on the streets. This is one of a kind. Also, in response to the metal work... The rear quarters are one piece and there is minimal filler used on the car. The hardest part about metal working these cars is the factory sheet metal used is seriously as thin as a beer can. Have to use .023 wire at a low temp and take lots of time welding them up not to warp the car. One of my guys posted pics of this car about 3 weeks back while it was still in metal with a mock up wheel on it.

Not to mention also.. THE CAR IS BLACK!!! You can't hide ANY imperfections in body/metal work on a black car.

Car rides like any sports car does..stiff but great in the corners.

There seems to be some confusion on ride height as well.. the car was NOT raised to fit the rims. The car was lowered 2" in the rear and 1.5" up front. As soon as the adjustable coil overs are in we plan on going lower all the way around.
