Okay with me. I like it when done to Chevelle station wagons, too.

Seriously guys? It looks like a bag of smashed assholes with that front end. Fix it back to what it is supposed to be, and it will be a fine looking truck. Upon further observation, it is an obvious chop. I'm sure no square body Chebby's were harmed in the making of that photo.

I kind of like it, but a photo chop it is, headlights way too big in comparison with rest of vehicle.

The transition from truck fender shape to GTO headlight and fender peak would be horrible in reality and they chopped it right out of this pic.

That being said, I may drag out my old model car repository and see if I could make this work.

I just calculate what it would take to put the correct front clip and hood back on the truck. Also, you'd have to fix the roof to get those cab corner lights off, and find more appropriate wheels. OEM, or period correct American Racing outlaws would be my choice.
