before anyone says anything, this chop was not inspired by prova's and is only red because the car in the original picture was red.

i was really happy with the way this one turned out. the only error i could find wat that smudge behind the rear tire, so just ignore that :D .

**i used the bumper from an asc gto stinger, as well as the grilles and rocker panel. the side intake was from the ram air 6 concept, as was the cabin and rear fender hump. the side vent above the front wheel (as well as the wheels themselves) is off of the solstice weekend racer concept, and all of the vent-inserts are from the solstice at different angles. the only things i really left alone were the headlights and mirrors.**

comments/suggestions welcome

Too much rice with all the vent scoops. The nose is an improvment.
rice? have you seen the solstice "weekend racer" or the ram air 6? that's not rice, my friend, that's american muscle needing some air.

Good job, camaroman. Nice touch using the Solstice wheels, I hadn't thought of them. (until now!).
thanks, at first i only had the ones on the ram air 6, but i figured more solstice wouldn't hurt (already had the grilles at that point). and anyways, they're better looking wheels :yup: .

Yes and thats why most of the ponti_knock line is weak. You say thats american muscle needing more air! its american muscle that is trying to look like an angry japanese kitchen appliance. The nose looks solid but the front fender vents..........looks like the typical ricer mod. The quarter vents.......meh. Maybe if the vents were alittle smaller and a fine stainless mesh instead of the honey-comb look.

Ponti-knock really needs to update thier look.:fall:

rice is putting wings on the back that looks like it came out of a plane and colored like an easter egg. this is awsome and it does need some scoops somthin clean and not too exagerated like the way the z06 flows with the scoop or a shakerhood.

Nice, though still has the same styling problems that the current one has; it's still too much of a 90s jellybean.

the front fender vents let the engine give off some heat and cool down to perform better. it's on pretty much all the new high performance pontiacs, not to mention older firebird models:

You don't want comments, then don't put up your chops. I'm not knocking your vision of what the GTO could look like. I don't drive a ponti-knock...(GM product)I drive a Camaro....(GM product) Read the post.....I said the nose looks solid but all the ricer vents is alittle much. I know this is a GM-oriented site genius. Are you just looking for absolute praise for your chops...OK it looks F$%^in awsome. Fell better now:yup:

Why mess with projector headlamps for the larger halogen units?

The arrow head on front is a nice touch it seems a little big.

I agree hood scoops are needed.

the bulbs aren't really important to the chop, it's just the headlights' shape that i'm interested in.
big arrowheads don't have to be bad...it just means you can tell its a pontiac from farther away.
