1968 Camaro Shooting Brake Rendering Looks Like a Drag Racing Hearse

While magazines worked to keep the purity aura of legends such has the first-gen Camaro untouched over the years, the world wide web is now doing away with such conventions - nothing gets away from the rendering trend that has taken over the web.

The latest example of this pixel manipulation fashion comes in the form of the image above, which gives us quite a sinister take on a 1968 Chevrolet Camaro.

Coming from digital artist Rain Prisk, who definitely has a fetish for shooting brakes, this is one image you can't unsee. And while the artist didn't mention the reason behind the virtually-added sheet metal, we have an explanation of our own.

To us, this looks like the kind of hearse that can create an almost unexplainable attraction for this macabre genre. In fact, given the speeding clues on the car, we're talking about a drag racing hearse.

We'll start with the generously-sized hood bulge, which makes us think of the 427 (make that 7 liters if you prefer the metric system) being offered as a special dealer option for the '68 Camaro back in the day.

Then there's the wheel-tire combo, which simply begs for this slab of America to be taken to the drag strip. Should it be an all-motor build or a forced induction anti-hero? We're not sure, but with such cars, you can't expect a hypothetical owner to let too many years pass by without taking his pride and joy to the gym, so the starting point probably wouldn't be all that important.

It's easy to admit this is the kind of contraption we'd like to see in the real world and with so many shops out there, the never say never rule certainly applies here. And given the strong opinon-splitting nature of such a build, the show would be guaranteed.
