    I moved the windsheld back and coverd up the headlights a bit. When I first saw the Velite side shots, it didnt strike me as a "Camaro" in its dimentions. The hood was very stubby, as is the trunk. Plus, that V6 engine looks pretty snug up front, and I wont be having that with my Camaro!! There isnt much done, but I like the longer nose. I wana try working on it more and really try to get more of a camaro feel.

    it's a very smooth, very refined car. I think that the 612 roofline would probably look best but the GTO might work well too....you never can really tell until you get finished

    Yes I love that LONG nose treatment with the front axel line in front of the engine like the new (QUATROPORTE) has. It looks sleeker yet more substantial and powerful this way. I wonder how long the WB would be on your version?

    How about with a T-top? Not sure from your orinigal post if you were going for a Camaro or a Velite as the end result.
    Is it coincidence that Bob Lutz owns an Hidden Content

    Well, on the idea that the Velite had 20" rims it would be about a 108" wheel base.
