I just got back from Spring Carlisle where I found this ... 'thing'. It started as a 2000 Camaro, and ended up being a Belmaro...

They should at least put some better wheels on it instead of stupid plain-jane v-6 Camaro wheels.

^ Agreed!

With the right wheels, I think that thing would look pretty "neat"

That 57 is ok could use a little work and maybe a non-rag top would look better, but that Vette is badass.

That's what the C7 Vette should look like instead of what they are talking about going with.

IMO those kits (I've seen a similar one that made a C5 Vette look like a '53 Vette) always fail to pull off the look for one major reason: the windshield just looks ridiculous. The rest of it looks okay, but you can't go for a '50s look, have a modern swept windshield, and have it look good. That's where these kits fail, and unfortunately, that's one of the few things they can't really change. Although on that particular one, the stock mirrors look pretty out of place too in my opinion.
