Fugly looking 69/02? Tell em' Nancy why!

While I'm not opposed to LS engines being transplanted into 1st Gen's I think it gets the thumbs down from me.
What do you guys think?
Yay or Nay?

Interesting concept with a lot of work in it. Cant tell if i like it or not from the pics. I think it needs a walk around.

67RSSS......owned since 69. A basket case for most of it.

Re: Fugly looking 69/02? Tell em' Nancy why!

I like it but clearly it's not a 69. You gotta appreciate the work that went into it. Nice write up too. Thanks for sharing!

It's hard to believe the author of the article said this.
"As you may have guessed, we’ve seen more than most so it takes a lot to capture our attention" "At first, it appeared to just be another ’69 Camaro. Clearly, we gave it a once over and then moved on. But after the initial scan, something seemed…off"

Seriously? Dead giveaway is the rake of the windshield and the doors. Even a novice Camaro guy should be able to spot that immediately.

I can't decide, but I'm leaning towards liking it. If nothing else, you have to admire the craftsmanship.

Experience...... It's what you get when you didn't get what you wanted.

Chevy should have done something like that instead of letting Camaro die off for a few years.

Yes Dom, I too noticed the glass and roof line in the very first pic.

Re: Fugly looking 69/02? Tell em' Nancy why!

I give a lot of credit to the person that took those pictures. I've seen this modification several times online and once in person. From most perspectives, it looks "wrong."
The 69 nose does not fit the flow of the 4th gen body. (Would anyone stick a 4th gen nose on a 69 Camaro?)

It's a swing and a miss for me.

Re: Fugly looking 69/02? Tell em' Nancy why!

You all know I am a big advocate of making cars better than original, but always keeping in line with the 'originality' of the car no matter what I build.
This is a case where they have gone way beyond that point and as much as I can appreciate the work that went into this car, to me the design is not good for many reasons.

Just my 2 cents

I kind of agree with rgwiz. If it was not for what we know today where they took the 5th and 6th gens it could have been a transition car. At least you can see out of the side windows. The visibility out of the new Camaro's has always been a sore point with me. Looks cool but can't see s**t.
