Keystone Light Camaro Preview

HOTROD Magazine is building a Camaro for Keystone Light as part of a promotional effort... the build was handled by Steve Strope of Pure Vision in SoCal.

This is a couple of casual pics this afternoon before the Keystone graphics go on... then it's a drive out to Las Vegas Sunday for the unveiling on Monday!

A plug for Allen Gwynn Chevy in Glendale - notice no exhaust poking through the rear valance...



A couple of teaser pics of the wheels...



305's in the rear, 275's in front...



I see something shiney under the hood...



Some subtle touches for the engine cover, incl. a fabricated filler panel...



Grand Sport style stripes anybody?



The Hotchkis suspension tucks things in nicely...



A little mesh behind the grill is another subtle touch...



Steve said the front grill looked too heavy, so he trimmed 50% from behind to lighten to look...



The side pipes and gill inserts are a little over the top - but this will be a 'promo' car so it should stand out a little...



Time to get ready for a few shots before the light fades - Steve Strope (builder, Pure Vision), Chico, Jerry Pitt (Publisher, Hotrod Magazine)...



Getting things lined up...



Soaking in the sun...



Vegas or bust, 5 days and counting...



Hey, if this is the Keystone Light promo car - did anybody think to look in the trunk?



Steve taking a break, watching the traffic go by...



Gratuitous shot with 'our' car in frame...



And why not a close up, Honey your car is in the blog again...

Looks good. I do agree the side pipe and gills are over the top though.

I usually like side exhaust, but I'm not sure about this set-up. I would have to see it in person.

I agree that the look won't be for everybody... but remember it's going to end up as a rolling billboard.

After the graphics go on - if it makes you think "beer"... then mission accomplished.

The side exhaust could work, but I think by painting (or coating) it white, it draws your eye to it too much...

Otherwise, the rest of the car is nice.

I like it But I am not sure about the exhaust, maybe if it was chrome or even black.

those side outs would look MUUUUCH better if it had gfx side skirts... it looks goofy just suspended underneath...
otherwise, pretty cool.

I HEART SIDEPIPES!!! LOL. But seriously, do you have any undercarriage shots of them out of curiosity? I'm still kicking around the idea of adding them if I can get it to look clean and not scrape on speed bumps, lol.

Great looking car
