Of all the weird, occasionally heinous, bizarre junk we have highlighted here at BangShift over the years, this thing takes the cake. Chad’s head is going to explode when he sees this. We have to thank (?!) BS’er Rich Pedraza for tipping us off to the sale of this Camaro “kit” car on TheSamba. For starters we had no idea that such a horrendous mess ever existed and secondly (if you can believe it) this is one of several different Camaro kits that were available for VWs back in the day. We had to go looking because this car is describes as a “full length” kit. What we discovered is that there were “shortie” Camaro kits that had noses and decks that were lopped short to “fit” the VW pan. They look cartoonish…this thing just looks awful.
The bottom line question here is, “what’s the point?” You’d never “fool” someone into thinking you were driving a Camaro. If they were blind like Mr Magoo and missed the Dr Seuss looks of the thing, surely the sound of an aircooled VW engine struggling to push the mess up a hill. You can hear the conversation now. “How many cubic inches are under the hood?” — “None, just a few CCs in the trunk.” For those of you that grew up in the 1970s when crap like this was being sold, we’re sorry for you. For anyone who may have owned something like this, never admit that to anyone. Not your wife, not your mom, not your freaking priest. Keep that fact under your hat.
We’re out of words. Scroll down to see more photos and the link to the sales ad!
