I definitely like these designs.

I have posted previous comments on this board and FBN about the Lingenfelter Trans Am and the Kevin Morgan Trans Am.

if they were to build these cars, they would sell them.

Now the 1969 retro Trans Am design is very novel. It has a lot of hard lines and edges, including the nose piece and grill.

The exterior is well done.

The interior can do without the orange carpets and the orange leather trim on the steering wheel...just awful.

I like them, especially the first one, the '69 queues definitely work. However for an extra $15 to $20k over Camaro's already formidable sticker (for high performance models) they will have to keep them.

Pontiac has been gone for a long time in my mind, about when they started changing everything over to G-whatevers and Aztecs. I seem to be in the minority liking even the '80's Pontiacs ("We Build Excitement," Remember?). These G5's, G6's, and event GTO's and G8's were competent and powerful cars but they did not look exciting. It really is too bad that all these people building all these new Firebird's from Camaro's weren't on GM's Executive Board isn't it? They really would have altered history if they were.

Yes, I like them. I applaud the people who are creating these cars. BUT the price tag will be very steep. Most of us will not be able to afford them. Back in the day, the working man or woman could buy a Trans Am for an affordable price.

They look cool but they will always be a Camaro.
You can put lipstick on a pig but it is still a pig and my tag line says all there is to say about Camaros.
