Tim G. says:

The ONLY thing/s I would request (differently) if I had one built, would be 100% all Chrome blacked out (want that Euro look) and I'd want adaptive, modern high intensity Xenon projector headlights and LED taillights. 😉

Real metal car!!!

Renato LoBue says:

I have a 1967 Firebird. The first car shown is a1967 Firebird but as the video progresses it changes to a 1968 Firebird, no vent windows on the doors, front turn signal lights and rear quarter panel lights are definitely from a 1968 Firebird. My comments are not a criticism but a appreciation of the details and hard work that went into the build of this beautiful car.
