It's got alot of nice work in it that's for sure.
I was never into skulls and flames, that always reminds me of death and destruction.....Not really what I want to experience after spending 150K on a car,,,but, whatever...

The painter guy did wrap and flow the design around that car better than any other than I've seen though.

Why is it listed as a "41 Chevrolet: Camaro street rod" ?

Later, mikey

It's a beautiful piece of work, but not my cup of tee. That's what I call an Easter Egg - a car built for show and NO GO. It doesn't even have a driveshaft! 500 miles on it? How? By induction-drive?!

Don't get me wrong, someone built a heck of a car and looks killer nice, but my guess is that it'll never see the road, which makes it an Easter Egg in my book.

That car is almost too cool for words. Only thing though, he went through all that trouble only to throw in a standard set of autometer gauges? You'd think that with the level of quality on everything else, he would've sprung for some custom gauges or gauge cluster that could complement things better.

I guess his "open checkbook" had been closed at that point.

I agree, like the teardrop taillights, pretty lame. The black wheels killed it for me too. Otherwise, killer ride.

Looks like someone ran out of money and they're are trying to unload it.

I think the photo with the drive shaft out is a construction photo, there is wire all over the place and other things incomplete.

I was wondering about the "Camaro" in the title too, what it the hell is that all about?

probably just put camaro in there so everyone searching for camaro's sees it. It is an annoying trick listers do to get people to see their stuff. Search copo and see how many non copo cars come up, or snap-on. I like that one cause everyone listing a tool puts 'not' snap-on so they come up when you are looking for snap-on.

I watched that guy paint flames on a car on TV a while back and it was awesome. I'm not into the skulls and demons either but you have to appreciate the talent it takes to do work like that. What's with those wheels? must have run out of money after the paint.

I take it that laws against using endangered, and protected animals such as Alligator for decoration are just ignored when you have an open cheque book.

Certainly not my cup of tee either..I want something that I can feel fine about driving..either build it as a cruiser driver or as a race car..but getting all mixed up with design features makes for a mess..

Just my opinion..

Alligators aren't protected anymore, they've developed a taste for yard-dog and little children in Florida.
I like the flames but the skulls are tooo much. Probably couldn't build a car that cheap unless you did it yourself. Easter egg is a good description...

Yes, those guages are right out of place.

Nice car, but not my thing. What if he hits some gravel
