HPP Trans-Am – Click above for high-res image gallery

We've seen companies attempt to turn the Chevrolet Camaro into a Pontiac Trans-Am, but the results are often mixed at best. Heide Performance Products, a customizing company out of Madison Heights, MI, is looking to change that. Is it successful? Well, let's just say we're looking forward to seeing HPP's pointy-nosed '69 Trans Am knock-off with our own eyes at SEMA next week.

The company has detailed the build process on its Facebook page, and there's also a second Camaro with T-Tops the company is bringing to SEMA. Finally, we have modern versions of the Dodge Daytona and Plymouth Superbird based off the current Challenger. See for yourself in our high-res photo gallery below.

      My first car back in the mid seventies was a 69 yellow/black "worked" 350 Firebird convertible...Lots of great memories and I like this new rendition. I like the front...a lot..not so much out back..(could live without the rear chrome bumper)

      I wouldn't spend the extra money over the stock Camaro SS but I can't help but admire the firebird remake.

      Thanks for posting up such a cool looking car.

      Have you seen the Banshee by Restore A Muscle Car in Lincoln, NE. It will be at Sema too and I think they really did a nice job. They captured a lot of the TA vintage styling with keeping a focus on a modern look. I think it is a nice blend.

      You can see it at their web site
      http://www.restoreamusclecar.com

      They are the same folks that worked with Year One to build the Burt Reynolds Edition - Bandit TA's and co-sponsor the Bandit Run every year. If I remember right, they will have 3 cars at Sema. One has Mike Lavallee Flames, DSE Suspension and an LS9 in it.

      Wow, TOP MUSCLE RICER, makes a lot of noise, and drive only straight, like all muscle ricers.
      Let me guess... 6-liter, 300hp, and Impreza STi or Golf R32 will destroy it always and everywhere.

        I don't know what you are talking about, I would smash on either of those girls.
        Not saying I'd marry either one of em, but I would smash...

      Oh yeah... there are cars in these pics are'nt there.... ;) Cute girls! uuhhh... anyway... I too am not for these converted Camaros. I do love the headlights and ramair scoops though. The side of the car looks good too with the air vents on the sides. I don't like the chrome grill and rear bumper though. The jury is still out on the tail lights.

      I though the Lingenfelter 455 T/A Concept was a much better looking Trans Am / Camaro conversion than this one:
