There's really nothing wrong with the first-generation Chevy Camaro, except perhaps for the fact that rows upon rows of them can be seen at every single car show in America. In fact, so ubiquitous is the 1969 model that there are a couple of aftermarket companies willing to build you a brand new example from the ground up utilizing just about zero OEM bits or pieces.

This being the case, it's hardly surprising that this is the model year The General chose to mimic with its new fifth-gen Camaro for 2010. But what would happen if you could somehow jump to-and-fro through the time/space continuum in your Mr. Fusion-equipped DeLorean time machine and transport yourself back to '69 with visions of the 2010 model in your head?

Answering that question-that-nobody-asked is the 1969 Danz Camaro SS concept car, which you can see in the high-res image gallery below. Words cannot describe the initial reaction we had when opening this sucker up in our browsers for the first time, so we'll just say that we hope its creator kept the original pieces in the garage when it comes time to sell. Yikes!

This probably seemed like a really sweet idea on paper. It just doesn't look quite right in reality.

:palm: Another case of just because you can does not mean you should.

Hey, this must be the first time the 'facepalm' gif was used on these forums!

I do not believe we had this emoticon before I made the suggestion to DF. Best facepalm I have come across. Simple, yet effective.

I get what they were trying for...

... they just didn't get there.

Every proportion is just wrong.
