Build quality? Yes, it looks well done. Tasteless? Most definitely. I don't care for Camaros at all and that even made me tear up with sadness a little.

Oh, and 12.50.....and I don't have a blower....or suspension work...or....etc....

I feel sorry for the little old lady who pulls out in front of him.....it's always all about safety for me.....even if he does have dimpled and cross drilled rotors with 6 pot calipers those weight about 600lbs a piece you have any idea how much that increases your stopping distance by? You totally have rethink your approach lengthen your stopping distance by 2 miles LOL. I hope someone does pull out in front of him let see him stop that thing HA!

If someone were to ask a shop to replicate this build (or "bought" as you call it) , expect a bill of over $120k easy (not including price of the car) , and 6-12 month build (or "bought") timeframe.

This BUILD is very professional , and superb craftsmanship regardless if you like the car or not ...

"bought" cars don't get invited to SEMA .

I'm 100% sure you have no idea towards the extent of modifications made to this car.,

This isn't a camaro with big wheels and speakers , it's a full blown custom build that Tampa Customs did in an almost impossible timeframe.

Pretty sad you don't respect hard work based on your "preferred performance/style"

the owner did not do any work. it was sent to a custom shop. it was bought, not built.

a 12.2 for a car with that much power is pathectic.

my svt is not set up for the quarter mile, if he'd like i'll take him on at laguna seca just so i can watch him roll it in the corkscrew. i prefer function over some gaudy chromed shit wagon. and even with all that money dumped in its still a camaro with big wheels and speakers. its the same as any other donk. big, dumb, and slow. also why are you defending this guy? did you work on the car? are you getting something out of this? probably not.

also dont argue with a fabricator. I've been welding with my own two hands for over 7 years now. I have built just about anything that can be thought of in one way or another besides aircraft and spaceships. most recently i was building military trucks. welding the frames together by hand. all they did was fab up some lift brackets for this camaro. which is really easy compared to making an entire frame.

To me, the "pimped" Camaro and this monstrosity are on the same level of gaudy.



You wanna know the best way to get attention in a camaro? Do what it was designed to do. Take it to a drag strip and haul some @$$. It will get positive attention that way. Or, put on a nice, deep, throaty exhaust that says "hey, I've got a V8, and I will SMOKE you." Those are good ways to draw attention to a car. Carrying around enough audio equipment to power a city block with a ridiculous "LOOK AT ME, I NEED YOUR APPROVAL AND RECOGNITION FOR ALL THE MONEY I'VE SPENT" kind of paint job? Douchebag.

That said, the level of workmanship is fantastic, and I'm sure it would smoke my focus on the strip.

This is a 150k + project , the ford focus is a sub 20k sedan.

This car is a 6 speed manual SS camaro with a Kenne Bell 2.3L SuperCharger.

The wheels/tires cost the price of 2 titanium fully loaded new focuses.

The build video here shows the work and craftsmanship on this BEAST. The owner is infact in the 1% up end of the economy. He also owns a Rolls Royce Phantom coupe with a steel hood ...

Sorry , just had to get the facts out there.

I'm supposed to be, what, impressed? Get real. What a fail.

Everyone who has posted is ugly and so are their significant others.
You're all poor.
5 of you live in a mobile home. The others can only hope to someday.
Your mental processes don't compete with those of a field mouse.
You once did something dumb on a dare for no money.
You smell of rotting lettuce and stetson cologne.



Really, you're bitching about shit you have no control over and a car you'll never see in person, not to mention an owner you'll never meet. For what? Just for something to talk about, er argue about.
Awesome.
Just keep feeding the animals.
Project cars like this are done for this exact reason, free advertising. It's not done to be functional in any real means or to be safe. It's all advertising. Weather that be from likes or dislikes, airtime is airtime.
