I'm a tarheel myself... but back to the thread. ;D
Thanks for those pics, Richard.  I'm going back to my first post:  This is not a rebody.  It is a kit car!   >:(
In the case of this particular car, how could you not call it a kit car?  It is not original in any way, shape or form: not an original body, drive train(?), motor.  But from these pictures I can also see how it would be easy to produce a car that could fool a lot of people with an original VIN attached to it.  The kit car market has lots of cars that are registered as the original.  Sadly, it appears that the same may soon be true for Camaros.  All the more reason to check out any car thoroughly before you buy it.  ::)
