    Sadly now demodded :(

    Paint, spoiler and some of the interior I would classify as "gaudy and overdone" to my tastes but I've seen worse.

    I'll take the Vortec setup though...

    Do they seriously have a spoiler on top of the stock spoiler? It looks like they took it off of a boat if that is the case I also think the yellow and green clash too much.

    I neither care for the paint, wing and I am on the fence about the hood work. They actually put a 3rd gen spoiler on top of a 4th gen spoiler. Good luck looking in the rearview mirror while backing up.

    Wow, no understating here. I used to think tall scoops and "superbird" like wings were really great. Now even a body kit has to look molded in or it looks glued on and cheap. Enhance the factory design by smoothing the look. The wing thing is awful. I have never really liked the pontiac F bodys as much as the chevys. I just think they could have done a much better job from the factory. The z28 wing looks integrated into the quarters and hatch wile the trans-am and fire bird look like it was glued on as an afterthought. I don't even care for the extra lip on the SS. Long, wide and Loww. Not stacked like chord wood. I think most of us ( not all of us ) prefer this, which is why we like to lower are rides. Paint is hard to chastise. Unless it looks like it was spray-canned on a hot day, the paint is more of a reflection of the personality. As loud as the paint job is at least it looks like quality work.

    it is funny how people that love F cars see the pontiac and chevy so differently. as a trans am LOVER i see the trans am as one of the most beautiful cars GM has put out. it looks 110% finished, bad to the bone and ready to kick kittens, eat doggies and laugh while doing it. the camaro on the other hand, to me, looks like the whole car is an after thought made for those that want a toned down version.

    when i look at the TA the OP posted i almost want to cry for it. they took my dream car (4th gen TA) and basically destroyed it. very very sad for that proud car.

    Here we go....that did'nt take long. I like an understated ride and you like one that screams out. I especially like the part about "ready to kick kittens, eat doggies"
