    2011 Pontiac Banshee - The Banshee Wails Again

    Unlike the ghost of Gaelic folklore that forewarned impending death, Restore a Muscle Car's Banshee communicates the company's vision of Pontiac's rebirth"Though I like all of the retro-designed, Fifth-Gen-Camaro-based T/As I've seen to date, I feel the Pontiac hobby needs a Firebird of the future, not a re-creation of a Trans Am from the past. That's what really helped me steer the unique design direction of the Banshee," says Dave Hall, president of Restore a Muscle Car, regarding his company's latest creation. Before we delve into the details of the new design, let's get the backstory on the Banshee.

    I can't see why they would post hate mail. Its not claiming to be a 5th Gen T/A.

    I like the rear on this one. The tail lights on the 5thGEN Camaro I loath. It seems to me like it was an afterthought on the lights.


    Me wonders if GM is getting the hint that Pontiac Fans are really pissed off at their mistake for killing the brand?

    They know, but just because some people like Pontiacs doesn't mean they buy enough of them to make the brand worth keeping alive.

    as for the car, I wish they went with a monochromatic paint scheme instead of the two-tone, it says "okay orange is all the new stuff we added, and black is where the car is still Camaro"

    I like the idea of making a new Camaro-based Pontiac that ISNT a rip off of older styles, and this is the only one I've seen that has begun to move away from that concept, sort of.

    i don't hate the idea... i hate that every retard has to use a piece of crap new camaro to get it done... i don't see why people can't use an ounce of their imagination...

    so far that is the (for lack of better terms) best looking altered camaro...

    I like that P1SC-1 plate kit on there. All it needs is a little re-organization with a smaller pulley and I bet you could squeeze some more boost for some better numbers out of it!

    seriously, a stock ls3 pushes what? like, 426fwhp, so a 6 psi blower should be pushing well more than that even it is recalcualated to rwhp
