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.

They should make the supercharger look like a beer can.

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.
