    Now thats a cool T/A. There seems to be too much Viper in it still, if that is the car you began with. Good job.

    I see a bit too much Viper, and not enough Firebird. Cool chop though.

    Re: firebird

    the way i did the chop should've made it so the only viper you see in it is the general shape. literally every part of the viper was changed on this chop, the cabin size, the overall length, door size, etc. i think the main giveaway that it's a viper is the front overhang, probably should've shortened that, but i felt it looked very firebird. thanks for the comments, i'll do a gif showing the original.

    Re: firebird

    I believe it to be a firebird if its had either: More aggressive hood scoops
    or
    a shaker hood

    They're the huge scoops that come out of the hood and they "shake" when the engine is on.
