do the rear windows match up or something?? that would look awesome with louvers on the opera windows and the rear window, only thing would you be able to see out of the rear view mirror?

He means the actual rear window louvers. They were aftermarket accessories back in the day & you still see them around on occasion.

Not likely, but there are (were?) some made for ours. If I remember correctly, Limey scored a set.

Nope you are confused. We are ALL talking about the REAR window. If you are still confused, go sit in your car. Look into your rearview mirror. See that piece of glass? THAT WINDOW! Whichever generation of you are asking about..... NO it won't fit. Curved glass vs non-curved glass.

Yes Limey bought (or was going to buy) a rear window louver that he was going to use. He also had Opera louvers for sale.

i would love to just cover them up like this

Personally I dont like the completely closed in side window like that, altho it does give the car a completely differant look, and looks is an individual thing. It makes it look too much like a camaro. JB

Is that car even real - I mean, it looks severely photoshopped.

that picture is DEFINATELY not photo shopped
all he did was shave the door handles/turn signals/and cover up the rear window
and changed out the grille and turn signal lens and different wheels
and thats all

Firebird & Camaro = same rear window.

I've done better photochop jobs in 10 minutes.

If you find clear turn signals, let me know. Limey reportedly sold a set from a 73, but I've never seen them. Every car I've ever seen had amber lenses.

Grill looks neat if it's real.

jrsixx done the window mod to his Cutlass & it looks good on that roofline. Dragon's_Lair is contemplating it on his Monte, similar roof. Chevelles look wrong with Opera windows, this looks horrible. There's just too much sheetmetal.

There is a fellow over in Norway or Sweden or somewhere that has a G3 Chevelle and he blocked up his side back windows like that. He races his car on a road course for fun all the time and it REALLY looks like fun. He has some Youtube up. When you get old you lose a lot of memory, and I aint talkin' computer memory. JB

77malibu77 - Have you personally seen this car, or do you know the owner? I'm not saying what is done on that car can't be done, I'm just saying it all looks fake. Call it a rendering, call it your final goal, whatever.... It just doesn't look real.

haha sorry if you guys think its fake, no i havent seen it but its on my background and it does look like they photoshopped the front turn signal on the fender
but the rest looks normal and even if it was photo shopped it still is possible to do any of that

and im not going to buy white turn signal lens
i was thinking of finding like a certain type of plastic that i can cut to the same shape and glue it on the turn signal lights
ehh, all i can say is wait until i do it and then you can decide

It looks alright (the photoshop job) EXCEPT for one thing. Look at the wheels. I don't care if you can prove that car is real, those wheels were chopped on there. The backspacing is narrower in the back, the lighting is wrong, & you can still see raised white letters in the rear that touch the rim. I do this stuff daily, trust me. I wouldn't be surprised to find out the car is completely stock.
