I personally really, really, really don't like that car. Looks like a Camaro with some after-thought mods. The taillights just look out of place, the front end says "hey! I'm a Camaro with a beak," and the spoiler is just too vertical (looks like an air-brake, not a downforce generator).

Man LPE knows what they are doing!

Tons of retro inspiration in that baby. Even the fog lights have a retro nod!

Don`t really like the blue colored interior, but that`s cause I never liked blue interiors.

They almost took a New Challenger approach and made a new car the way people remember the old one, instead of just having a few homages to the heritage like the new `Maro

Its a nice effort, but there are a few things that bother me. The biggest is the lines of the car. Its a mixture of a first and second generation Trans Am's. They went with the look of a 1970 TA where the lines of the car were completely differant from the '69 model. Had they tried to make this car look more like a '69 TA, I think the out come would have been better. The roof, doors, and rear quarter panels don't match the front.

The double tails lights from the first gen with the spoilor from a second gen. It just does not look right. The biggest problem is the tail light shape is more from a 1978 TA and split into two lights. Again a mixture of 1st and 2nd generations and it dosn't work.

Its kind of like the 1993-97 camaro front campared to the 1998-02. The front on the latter years still bothers me. Something about the headlights and front grill that just don't match the rest of the car.

Just my opinion...

The taillights look awful. Almost think I've seen people with busted out taillights come up with better looking repairs using that red cellophane.

easy. heck i like some old camaros & dislike some old camaros
the camaros i liked are the first gens, third gens and fifth gens.
i never really cared for the second or fourth gens - but i did love the trans ams from then (well, actually the 77-81 & 98-02)

The seats look like a catchers chest pad

Its a nice exercise, but I am just not feeling it at all. Look at a real 74 TA............it was smoooooooooth lookin. This thing is a chopped up mess that need a lot of massaging to say the least

Wow.. with all due respect, that TA is completely FUGLY. But then again, I have never been a huge fan of the Trans Am... However, I do commend you on trying something different Everyone has their different likes and dislikes... I can respect that...

I think the T/A concept is awesome. I think it is captured perfectly in this representation.
But the best part is what you can't see, what's under the hood!

this car is just too bulky to make it look like the more slender pony cars of the past

hell of an effort though it looks pretty cool

Thumbs down

It should be a First Generation Firebird T/A. I'd keep the interior, but the front is just atrocious.
