+1
love that the 5th Gen evokes the 1st..but doesn't bastardize it..like this bumper conversion does.

I have seen the chrome bumpers front and back in person. They are just stuck on and they look like they are stuck on, does not blend that well with the lines of the car, and I like to mix a little old school with the new cool on my Camaro!!

Yeah, the front kinda looks like a rice burner. I think you are right. My car is smokin hot the way it is...spoken by a true Camaro girl.

That looks like better quality...looks better than the posted ones...still a lot of "rear end" below the lights...

Nothing for the front??

Relax...I looked into all that right after I got mine...they look like they tried for a retro look, but didn't quite pull it off...
I just went with some nice quality white retro SS badges, on grille, rear and sides...with the 69 cues it already has, I'm happy with it!
