    Tasteful being the key word.

    My answer would be no.

    that is the problem... i've seen one and it looked like shit... the curves went out to fast and didn't seem to smoothly melt in to the body lines... basically it was a large fender flare... maybe the guy just rolled them like that...

    While searching for Wide Body Kits, I came across this:

    Bird of Prey Kit

    What does everyone think of that? I'd want to see some more pictures of it up close, but I think it looks badass!!!

    I'm not sure if I like those or not. To be honest, I never thought our Birds needed much in the way of restyling. The only thing I would be interested in are some wider quarters. It would be nice to be able to stuff some seriously wide meats inside the wheel well withought the need to tub. I am in the car parts biz and there just isn't much out there for 4th Gen's.

    the thing i dont' like about the camaro one is that the fenders are just flared at the top... i want them to come all the way down to the bottom... i don't want my car to have any more muffin top...

    I like the way the Dick Harrell looks (the wide body looks nice), but you are gonn ahve to have that custom done. and I'm not really a fan on teh bird of prey kit. It's ok, but not a vast improvment over a stock t/a. I would rather just see a west wing kit molded into the front bumper.

    maybe i'll do some photo-shoping... and see what i can come up with that looks good... then send it off to a manufacturer and see if they can produce it...

    Sorry, I like the stock look. I think Pontiac hit it on the head.

    No disrespect to any of you guys, but I feel like this is a pretty understanding site when it comes to peoples opinions so here goes.
    I can understand a fella wanting to change out his wheels and maybe spray on some flames or stripes, but if you dont like the way the car looks why did you buy it?? I mean I could have went out and spent a quarter of what I did and baught some cheap ass car and made it look somewhat good. I guess what I am trying to say is, buy what you want and make it your own. Dont buy what you kinda want, and try to change what it is. These cars were built beautiful. Yes they have their flaws, but the exterior is not one of them. Have a little bit of respect for your F Body.

    Alright Im dont now. Not trying to be mean, you earn your money spend it how you would like, but remember why you baught the car in the first place.

    maybe he did go out and buy a half ass car and hes trying to make it look ok...

    Me personally I would love to have a Vantage... but i cant afford a $100k car... so I have to go out and by a $20k car and change it up a lil to make it more what i want...
