2009 Camaro Roadster

Lets take a quick look into the future. It is late winter 2009. Chevrolet is getting ready to launch their brand new 2009 Camaro coupe. They have promised a convertible version once the coupe is up and selling. To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the 1969 Camaro Indy Pace Car, Chervrolet Division and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway announce that the 94th running of the Indy 500 will be paced by the brand new Camaro Roadster. A special limited edition run of 500 uniquely painted Camaro's will be produced in Vanilla Creme Pearl with Burnt Orange Rally Stripes with a flame design up front and Special Door Graphics noting the date of the race. The interior replicates the 1969 version with orange leather and plaid inserts. Ok, back to reality, this is a Camaro coupe that I converted to a roadster, I added headrest flairs to the back seats and a Corvette style "waterfall" between the rear seats. The front has a new lower air dam with vents for the front brakes. I made the rally stripe patterns on the computer and cut them out on my brothers vinyl sign making cutter. ( I love this piece of equipment). The side door decals are modified from the 1969 Revell kit to reflect the future date and number of Indy 500 race. I painted the Camaro with a solid GM beige topped with Clear Effec's to give it a pearl sparkle and the used HOK Dark Orange Pearl for the stripes and HOK Yellow, Light Orange and Red for the flames. The plaid seat decals came from Scale Motorsport. Other then that, it is a Camaro coupe build. The 1969 Camaro Convertible in the background was built about 6 or 7 years ago and the only modification to it is the 3 part Nissan Snow white pearl top color (base white, pearl overcoat and clearcoat with hardener). Thanks for indulging me and as usual Complaints and or Comments are always welcome. Next up will be a Charger that you may have never seen or heard of before.
