Camino LS6    866

Love it!

Phantoms are one of my favorite approaches to creating a personalized car. This one also incorporates the "restomod" concept that also has great appeal for me. This and 442 wagons, and SS wagons, and GTO wagons, along with "off brand" quasi-Caminos are some of my favorite creations. Cars that the factory could have done, but didn't.

Expect things like this to be in my "fleet" from time to time.

If my budget ever allows, I have a long list of creations like this I'd love to bring to life.

Imagine this example: A '96 B-body Impala SS 2-door convertible with LS* power. :AH-HA_wink:

My father and I are currently in the process of making a 1940 Packard panel truck that never existed new out of a 1940 Packard Henney-bodied ambulance that was slowly being reclaimed by nature in a guy's side yard before we bought it. It's now twenty inches shorter than it was when we started and its windows have been deleted. It's gonna be pretty cool when it's all done!

I've seen a few phantoms myself; the two that stick out the most in my mind are a 1970 Pontiac GTO Judge wagon made from a 1970 LeMans Safari and a 1970 Buick GSX wagon (called the GSXpress) made from a 1970 Skylark Sport Wagon.

I'd like to see all three of those!

Seen it before - I know that's not a big surprise. :AH-HA_wink:

Very cool idea that I thought about doing way back when. Since then I have actually seen several done this way.

I like.

Whoa. When I saw that, I was drinking some milk, and it came out of my nose, but it was totally worth it. I love it. :wub: :wub:
