This is in no disrespect to the owner of the camaro, simply opinions of a viewer who was at the show and is involved in the industry.

While I am not a fan of the design of the vehicle, this car simply should not have gone to SEMA in the condition that it is in, looking like it was put together by a group of hacks. It honestly is a disgrace to the SEMA show that this car was in attendance as it epitomizes what has been wrong with the show for years, the show is to display new products for members of the INDUSTRY not to display a car thrown together with parts that obviously dont fit just for the hell of being at the show.

Having been involved with cars that would be on display in a manufacturers booth I know exactly what its like to be down to the wire, but there has to be a point where you call it quits and either dont bring the car or bring it unfinished but still in a positive way that shows off the new parts on the vehicle. Unfortuanetely the condition this camaro is in is neither, and if I was the shop who "built" it I would be embarassed to have my logo on it.

I hope you the owner gets it all worked out without taking even more money out of your wallet and time away from your car.

you would have been better off not showing it at sema than taking it looking like that. hopefully you get it all resolved and it looks better.

The only problem with that plan is that is probably still doesn't run

hey i agree trust me i was pissed. i actually called it off and did not want to take it but it was demanded by the shop who gave me the kit.

now as far as the work i know i am doing what i can but i am screwed i have to pay to get it done right. took it to another shop to fix this guys mess.

well with this post the guy who worked on my car will know people saw his shitty work and also will know he shouldnt have ****ed me over. he took my car back after sema promising to fix it and it sat for a month. so i pulled out. well some people know what is going on and guys talk all the crap you want more fire power for me on this guy.

well other then that once this car is done i hope you make a good comment. and again its my fault cause i posted the pics and shouldnt but its proof for me in court of his work

The guy who did this work should be ashamed, unless he's legitimately blind, then he actually has an excuse...

i know guys i know its bad. one reason i posted was to show the idea of the car. all i can say is once the other shop is done with my car i will get better comments.

i know this is bad to see done to a camaro. see the sad part is after the guy got my car and it got closer to sema i was hearing bad things about him i was hoping they were wrong but i am proof they were not.

also after this people will also know who worked on my car and not go to him and the word will get around.

shevyman - I applaud you for posting the pics, and I feel the pain you are taking from all the bashers. I know you are sick to your stomach because it's your dream gone bad.

I look forward to seeing it done - right this time! Good luck and keeping pushing toward your dream!

That sucks! I hope it all works out

IMO its looks too "show car" and not something I would drive daily
If it were my car I would
- lose the tacky aftermarket decals
- paint the wheels black
- and paint the car another color (I can't stand burnt orange)

just sayin

Anyone that has built all out show cars have gone down a path of a few bad vendors and end up costing more in the long run. But, I promise, once it is all done and you look back at it, it will be worth it.!!

hi, Im the person that took the original pics at SEMA and thought you might want an update; FYI this is not an isolated incident and everyone should stay clear of Ernie and Hard Core Muscle in Santee, CA.

here is more info and pics; worth taking a look at and I will update again shortly as HCM butchered this poor car:

It gets worse!

you didnt think this thread was over did you???? as promised there is more!!! better late than never I guess.

PLEASE REPOST THIS ON AS MANY FORUMS AS YOU WISH AS A PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT!!!!

The car is now up at Real Auto Works, the shop that built the green Camaro that was awarded best GM at SEMA and was underbid by Ernie for this Hot Wheels project, to be saved. The kit, hood, wheels, etc will be the same as that is how the project was commissioned however it will be assembled properly. I drove up and they were kind enough to let me photograph the car in greater detail as it was being torn back apart to see what needed to be fixed; needless to say its just about everything and probably would be easier and cheaper to scrap the thing and buy a new car lol. Prepare to die laughing!!!!
STAY AWAY FROM HARDCORE MUSCLE IN SANTEE!!!

****WARNING - PHOTOS ARE NOT FOR THE WEAK OF HEART, THOSE WHO ARE PREGNANT, HAVE PREEXISTING HEART CONDITIONS, ARE SUBJECT TO SICKNESS OR UNCONTROLLABLE LAUGHTER MAY NOT WANT TO VIEW....YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!!!****

First the paint is horrendous, there are sanding marks, runs, blotchiness, faded areas, discoloration, etc, however due to the metallic nature of the paint most flaws do not show up in photos...

and of course we know of the missing body parts like the door handles:



And again, nothing lines up or fits right:





AND THE REASON WHY NOTHING FIT?!?!?!?! WOOD SCREWS!!!!! More on this to come.... oh and notice the rubbing compound...that extra, free of charge!

Ernie didnt mask off anything and as a result there was some of that cool, custom paint everywhere!!


They ****ed up all the rubber seals:

more over spray, wood screw, misalignment, and compound:

scratches, compound; remember this is EXACTLY how HCM took the car to SEMA:


They just used the trunk as a garbage bin:


The car is just a complete mess:






The engine bay remained stock red; well except for the over sprayed parts:



Overspray and rubbing compound went everywhere! Including wires; not even the interior was safe :( (more to come on that):

a few more just for shits and giggles! and again there are plenty of **** ups in the paint that dont show up in the pics so Im not posting those; that and a lot of paint and not painted parts that were burned with a buffer or sander
awww he ****ed up the door sill plate, and Im pretty sure the side skirt is suppose to mount flush to the car:

notice all the soap and/or compound on the seats??? more of that to come, and what the **** is with the screws? Im not so sure those are suppose to be there....


theres a damn good reason why the bumpers dont fit, hint it has something to do with the use of wood screws to hold them on:




HEY LOOK A WOOD SCREW!!!


Hey look, another one!!


Looks like they needed more screws!

this one shows the runs, discoloration, etc a bit; much worse in person
