Never liked the "gun slot" roof line on the new camaro. Your Chevelle proves that good vision and good looking are not mutually exclusive

Well I kept looking at the back of this build and just thought it did not look new enough so I did a little cutting and adding some plastic to change it up a bit, I also moved the license plate down, but it still does not look right to me. any way here are a few pictures, I will let you guys be the judges.

Hello again, I was also think about adding some side molding to this. My idea is to embed the molding into the body. I added a strip of plastic to the side to get an idea what it would look like. this would be body color so not to distract from the car. What do you guys think.

i think the problem you see is how the back end slopes off into the rear of the car. when i see that slope it instantly makes me think of 70's muscle cars and the chevelle. newer cars don't slope like that. if you look at the 69 camaro and a 2010 camaro the 69 slopes the 2010 stays straight to a definite angle down. also the higher ridge of the fenders sloping down into the trunk modern cars are more flat in that respect.

 

fantastic build though

I like the side molding, looks like its meant to be there. As for the rear, Im not sure what to add but I think you are headed in the right direction. Maybe on top of what you did, a molding/flushed bumper and a center piece between the tails?

Thanks to everyone for the nice comments. Got some more work done to this build today, still trying to work out the back end of this. I did away with the inner tail lights and added a center panel in between the lights, this panel will probably be painted black. If you look at a70 chevelle SS most of them a panel similar to this. I will make the panel lines narrower in the future.

Also worked on the front grille. I cut out the center and added some horizontal pieces and shaped to match the grille. I also added some material to the rearveiw mirrors to get the correct angle of the chevelle sides.

I really like how this is going. That front looks really good.

 

I'm serious...send Chevrolet's management team some pictures of this once you're done with it. If this doesn't inspire them as to what the future could be, I don't know what, if anything, will.

That is just beautiful! Excellent work. I think you sorted out the tail light issue perfectly. This thing looks like a legitimate concept!

That rear bumper is much better! :wub:  Thanks for that! I would go down and buy one of these right now!

can you get someone to cast this ? I would also buy a body from you! I think it would be a hit!

nice work so far although i love the reinvention of classic looks i think to blend in with modern cars a little more they should be a little more bubble shaped. although chevy would probably make some money off of this.

I like the rear treatment, and if I may. The window should be closed in some as you stated.

Bam!  Thats the look it was missing before.  The only change I would suggest is like others have mentioned... the sail panel area.  It has the Impala feel too it cause the roof looks so low and long.  It's not bad for the car but would love to see a little something different and more aimed at the 70 Chevelle.  The rest of the cars body mods are based on that so it would seem fitting.

 

I swear though... if GM ever makes this car, I WILL BE WRITING THE CHECK!!!
