Lately, GM has been on the promoting warpath for the new Chevrolet Camaro, and it has left a trail of Camaros in different variations. So far, the company hasn’t showing any sign of slowing down yet.

These vehicles were designed from the inspirations of the Chevrolet Corvette and Camaro owners.

“Go to any Corvette or Camaro enthusiast event and you will have a hard time finding a factory-stock vehicle,” said Chris Perry, vice president, global marketing and strategy for Chevrolet. “These are cars that owners treat as canvases to express their personalization and high-performance dreams – and have been for decades. The SEMA Show is the perfect venue to test new customization concepts and to inspire new owners to start modifying their cars.”
