Ok, finally had a chance to give her a proper bath.

Originally had this murdered out, but saw the Camaro to Firebird conversions that were being done and my wife and I always loved that screaming chicken. Plus the horsepower is similar to the Firebirds

So now she is:

Dechromed
Debadged
Blacked out headlights
Blacked out tailights
Red Calipers for that side splash of color
Logo'd

Yes, yes, laugh if you must, I get it. I see some of the obnoxious rims, spoilers, etc and they aren't my cup of tea.

But you do you, I'll do me. I'm happy with it. If you like it, cool.

If you hate it, that's cool too, I understand

I like it! One of the painters at an auto body account of mine has a zl1 Camaro and he did a Pontiac nose on it. Looks incredible.

My e90 that I searched for for 6 months back in 2011 just got hit in a roundabout and I’m pretty sure it’s totaled. Crumpled the B pillar a little plus both doors, rear qtr, and rocker... with the bpillar needing to be replaced I think that’s going to be a wrap. I’ve been thinking a c6 or c7 zo6 for the cheap horsepower if I can find the right one, but every time Greg drives his Camaro I start thinking about one of those and doing that conversion. I love that noise, on any car apparently.

I don’t know if I’d go full chicken but man I love that nose.

@k9dr , one of my best buds in high schoolhad a black ‘78 in REAL good shape with the chicken and everything. It was mildly popular at school (late 90s, civics with straight pipes and 5” chrome tips ruled the parking lot :D ) but HOLY CRAP we got a lot of attention from “adults” in it. Gas stations turned into ten minutes of “old dudes” talking to him about it almost every time. He sold it when we were in our late 20s because he had nowhere to keep it..... man what a time capsule that thing was.

(Nice to see you've copied the color scheme of my Alfa, though -- right down to the red calipers. But those tiny little discs???)

Please at least tell me the car is RWD.

Next is rear window louvers!

I wish they made a RWD or AWD version but no dice. She does have 300hp and a throaty growl when you start her up though


The casino thieves are going to be really confused next time when they try to put your wheels on their Pontiac.

Bwah-ha-ha, you win the Internet for today good sir!
