57 Chevy Belaro: 1997 Chevrolet Camaro Kit Car
The Machiavelli Max post the other day was one of the better looking fake Ferrari kit cars I’ve seen recently — despite its plebian TransAm roots, it looks like a Ferrari to a casual observer. This next kit car…it is interesting, but I don’t think that anybody is going to be fooled into thinking it is a ’57 Chevy. Similar to the Machiavelli, the Belaro also uses a GM F-Body for the mechanical parts, but this time a Camaro. And yes, we’ve seen one of these before. Find this 1997 Chevrolet Camaro Kit Car offered for $19,750 in Ft Lauderdale, FL via eBay.

With the windshield laid back like that, it looks more like a late fifties MOPAR.
I kinda like it.
It’s weird, yet kitschy.
Misshapen, yet chromy.
It looks like something a cartoonist in the 60s would have drawn. And that’s a sincere compliment.
I mean… how many of us have driven something that looks like it came straight out of the pages of a classic comic book?
I’m completely serious.
Two thumbs up.
