Another Camaro/Trans Am conversion...Are they serious?
Every year, SEMA attracts countless custom cars. From mild to wild, the tuners show off their latest works. Everyone wants to attract orders for their body kits/cars/wheels/repair services. Since beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, you can always expect to find some "misses" at the SEMA show. However, these items are so scary that they bring new meaning to the word...horrible.
This year, Michigan-based tuner Heide Performance Products (HPP) decided to do what so many other custom shops have already done; turn a perfectly good Chevy Camaro, into a Pontiac Trans Am...and try to turn a Camaro into a Z/28.
Now remember, Pontiac is dead. Kaput. Six-feet under. There’s no bringing it back.
And the Camaro looks just fine the way it is. But that didn’t stop the guys at HPP.
Oh no. They took a perfectly good Camaro, and festooned it with...well, look at the pictures.
It sort of looks like a ’69 T/A...if you were really really drunk. And what’s with the wheels on that Z/28? It looks like they came off my niece’s Barbie Jeep.
It’s really surprising that HPP got these cars so wrong. Because if you look closely, the quality of their work actually seems pretty good.
So, the most obvious question is; which looks worse, car or model?
