    I looked at that car and I just don’t like it....I also think $200k is a little rich. I have seen much nicer looking Detroit Speed builds sell for $80-$100k at BJ.

    I don’t understand what their vision was with some of the ( I think not tasteful) mods. I Mean what’s up with the front fenders? They wanted the upper valence panel to be the whole front rather than the fenders extending all the length of the car? The extended rear panel routing under the car...eh.
    I don’t see it selling for that much.

    Hell no. A quarter of a million dollars?
    Let me make one thing clear, the workmanship and quality is there for sure. The design just does not work. It is not a beautiful car. Not in the least. Those door handles are an insult to that car's body lines. I still do not like his tail lights and the rear roll pan with exhaust exiting out of it is goofy looking. Once again, the fab and craftsmanship is all there but the car is not brought together by it. The engine bay is awkward. The braces, if functionally tied to something like the cage going through the fender, are cool. The rear seat delete is just an easy out for the mini tub adn the storage compartments are not for a mega dollar build. More like a teenager's woofer box where he lost the back seat for some bass.
    It just does not "work" as a cohesively designed piece and is not worth $225K.
    Opinions are like b-holes since everyone has one so, maybe it is just me.

    The paint and the rims/tires are two of the biggest things for me and it is just ugly.

    I don’t think they installed mini-tubs...they flared the 1/4 panel wheel well...yuk!

    Hate to come out and say it, but the overall redesign is a failure. It just doesn't work. Looks like a bunch of tasteless add ons. Probably 500+ hours work on it too.

    The various changes are hit and miss. The front end fender mod is terrible. The thing is, Camaros were built and sold to be fun, sporty, AFFORDABLE cars for everyman (or woman). Spending that much money on one takes away a big part of what made them great in the first place. I'm sure the quality of the work is second to none but when you throw such huge sums of money at it, it begins to be grotesque. Just my opinion. To each his own.

    I like the color and the wheels but the gas cap, the front spoiler, the flares and a lot of other things just killed the lines of the car for me

    That’s why dse to me is king because they keep the soul of the car

    Ring Bros really dropped the ball on this one. Musta been their guinea pig. Would't be worth the time to ask all the "why" questions I would have.
