It's like a reverse mullet.

So you started with cars I really did need (want) and then either it rapidly went down hill or I have worse taste than I thought.

Whoever buys this car will need to get ready to answer over and over again, "Hey, what kinda car is that?" That alone would keep me from purchasing. Looks like they did a pretty good job of piecing it together.

The side view and roofline remind me of a Nascar body. The only Camaro looking feature is the grill.

It's cheaper that way.

Okay, Mr. Wallens, it has become clear to me that you're trolling us.

I, or anyone else, needs that like I (or anyone) need a '94 Cavalier, runs good just needs brake lines and a trans and four tires and a new windshield and there's no title, will trade for sportbike or lifted diesel truck

I'll give him credit for piecing things together pretty smoothly, but that's one weird looking car...proportions are all wrong, the front end looks huge compared to the rear, and the rear fender flares just look strange....

and then you also get that 80s-tastic interior that looked dated when it was new!

No. I do not need this.

You either need to increase or eliminate whatever meds you are on.

Good example of why I pick cars with style I already love and try to leave that aspect alone.

I own a Camaro.

I own a Thunderbird. Actually, if I'm being honest, I own four Thunderbirds (don't judge me).

But I've never felt the need to combine them. Still don't.

For some strange reason I don't hate that. Change the interior to black and that would help it a lot. But over all it is kind of cool.

I admire people that do this stuff. Similar to the stance crowd. They are car people. They had a vision and executed it.

This is a bad, but it's a well executed bad. It also just screams for something stupid to be done to it: like sticking a supercharged LS3 under there, custom inboard suspension bits, and giant 18x11 out back. Not that I recommend doing this, but if you're gonna do stupid, might as well go full stupid.

Yep, I'll second that emotion. I also like the idea of stuffing it with a ton of power and just standing behind it.

I can't agree with this more. Many people will never understand why one would want to take a perfectly driveable car, strip it down to bare essentials, and weave in and out of traffic cones in the blazing hot sun on a Saturday morning.
