  • My custom, Camaro stretched, concept.

    This concept of mine would mean stretching the Camaro ~10inches (with all its difficulty), adding a bolt over shell body, 3 inch spacers, and a new roof with T-Tops.



    With enough money I would relocate the engine to the back in the future.

    What do you guys think? No windshield modifications and the body shape turned out like the Italia.

    Some technical talk on the donor and a mid engine setup
    Lets build a mid-engine Trans Am - need advice - LS1TECH
    Lowest Trans Am in the World - Radical Thinkers Only!! - LS1TECH

    note: the rear end was heavily shortened, I'll need to work out the details of that on the donor later.

    damn, won't let me watch the video. Would the engine relocation be required?

      Is it Youtube blocked?
      No relocation is required, you'd just have a lot of empty room back there.

      I also posted it on a busy forum for design feedback

          decent concept but what a dream i tell ya!

          this thing will get off the ground in the year 2030 aproximately.

          stretch a camaro? WHY? how looooong is this thing going to be? chopped camaro yes, stretched is rediculous.

          next, why or rather HOW are you going to put the engine in the rear? that is a lot lot lot lot lot lot lot lot of EXPENSIVE work.

          I am guessing you do not have much money for this. make it as cheap and nice as possible, if it ever will be made.

            For whatever reason, youtube decided to block the content in the USA.

              I found a cheap alternative which would bring this design closer to reality. I dont think I'll be able to chop the roof off for safety concerns, but it will still look nice as a sedan.
              Relocating for a mid engine for such a long and wide car, when money permits, would make it interesting.





              P.S. to Ronin, the A pillar looks closer to a Lambo then the Camaro does.

                As they say 'in da hood', "damn, dawg, you got skillz, bro!!"

                No, really, it looks pretty good.

                Good luck with it, mate.

                  Thanks

                  I found forum chat about making the donor convertible, I wonder if I can still legally do it if it has safety concerns.

                  edit - made some Sebring overlays




                  edit - did some work on the Sebring.... the Intrepid with a cut roof would be best

                        I am glad you brought the NSX up...I've had 3 of them in the past and plan to pick up another one to play with soon. I just love to take them to pieces and put them back together. lolz Have you gotten any good idea to slap on the nsx? One thing that you probably noticed is that the nsx front and rear bumper is a little longer from the wheel base than the rest of the sports car.

                        I can really see the above model for the nsx, but the long rear wheel base and the engine cover may be an issue

                          That picture above is fit over an NSX actually and it would be the ultimate sub-affordable kit car but it would need a custom canopy/windshield to attain its exotic look... without it, its kind of like a F430 knockoff

                          Some of these pics show a thicker and larger kit size over the NSX

                          Even with a new custom top (still attaining structural rigidity) and fitting a Lotus Elise windshield, it still didnt look exotic enough unless the windshield was pushed all the way to the front of the car... but that made it awkward with it mismatching seating position.

                          If a legal bubble canopy can be made like the Ferrari P4/5 without costing an arm and a leg, I think it would be pretty epic, other then that I dont have anything worthy to kit the NSX

                            I like the concept but I don't see that coming together quite well on a camaro chassis. I think its a mistake stretching the camaro chassis to begin with. It's not built quite the same way as a Fiero or MR2 where you could cut the subframe and go from there with the camaro you'll constantly run into a whole lotta problems. Even more so trying to replocate the engine into the back of the car. Lots of sheet metal will need to be cut away and by the time your all said and done you'd be better off with a tube chassis than you hacking away at a 4th gen and trying to re-enforce it. Trust me I've had to work on mine quite a bit and I couldn't imagine stretching the frame.

                              it looks too much like an F430. You are right, the rear canopy would be the hard part. Here is Jeff's solution to that Project Widebody- Jeff’s 1991 Acura NSX «
