Question Camaro in a crate - Good or Bad?

What are everyones thoughts on the all-new 1969 Camaro body in a crate? I’m a member at a few forums and this has popped up and caused heated arguments both ways. I thought I’d open the can of worms here and see the responses. If it’s new to you then check it out <Link Removed>

This is the best thing I have heard in a very long time. These cars are timeless classics.

While this idea is nowhere near new, it is an engenius one. Why search arround the junkyards to find the perfect Camaro body with no rust when you can simply buy one? I think its a very good Idea. The only thing I see wrong with it is whos making the bodys and are they actually Chevy approved Vin numbers? Lastly, is'nt this illegal?

No, it's not illegal (as indicated in the article). You have to do one of two things;
- transfer the VIN information from a registered '69 Camaro to the new body

or

- register the whole thing as a u-built kit car of some sort. Like a reproduction Cobra.

Which way you chose will determine how much the finished car is worth, of course.
The danger areas are clear, such as people making "fake" Camaro's or passing of clones as an original SS or Z-28 or whatever. But lets face it, that's already happening with people cloning '69 Z-28's from a 307 powered car and doctoring up the VIN and making big profits. Buyer beware.
I guess while I see some of the negative reaction, I don't have a big issue with the concept. For the people that use it for legitimate purposes, it'll be great IF the quality is comparible to the original. It's not like the unibody kit is a complete car, you could buy most of the parts separately before, this just saves you welding it all together.

I think it is a great idea, it makes the original camaros even more holy and raises them to the glory they should get, and alows for people with much smaller budgets to get a piece of the muscle car action

Thumbs up

I think its a great idea, let the Camaro live forever!

My only question is when are other cars coming out? (chargers, cudas, mustangs, challengers, trucks, the possibilities are not very limited)
