    like the idea of using a '69 inspired front end to match the body for a change, (instead of a '77/'78 front end that looks out of place) but it's still too ugly too look directly at.

    I really don't mind the retro body kits that have been tossed around since the 5th gen was introduced. Kind of cool imo.

    lol '69 is probably the only other year Trans Am/Firebird that I really like next to the 4th Gens, so I i guess my opinion is Biased.

    I've just never seen this until I was googling Raptor Hoods and it popped up. I really like the '69 inspired front end over the "bandit" and pre "bandit" inspired cars.

    I also kinda like this one. Its one of the few "retro" attempts of a 5th gen Firebird that actually has me a little wow'd.

    I mean it just hurt my eyes by seeing the hood I didn't even want to think about looking at what else I didn't like about the car lol!! They are going a little over board with this remake of the t/a bull I am getting tired of it, seems like every week your seeing a different style.

    I fully agree. Even if somebody actually wanted one of these body kits, they are waaay too expensive and on top of that you still have to buy a Camaro. No thanks!

    IMO, i think the fourth gen Camaros look a lot better than the new ones. I guess i'm just not a fan of the new Camaro.

    now I'll agree there... The 4th gen cars still had a unique look. I just don't like the new Camaros period. But honestly guys who are we kidding? the firebird/Trans am and the Camaro have been carbon copies of one another for along time, so what can we expect? I'm not saying I would buy one of these conversion kits because for 30k I can reel of a list of performance upgrades I would rather put into the car over a cosmetic upgrade.

    Well I guess I'm just saying IMO if GM hadn't killed Pontiac this is probably the best rendition of a Firebird Concept I've seen from anyone for that matter, but they do all look out of place. Now If I had just an unnecessary amount of money just to spite GM I would probably buy this thing because it has a Pontiac emblem.
