BigDaddyCustoms creates a Chevy Camaro based on a..?


Kaustubh Shinde, They say sooner or later your passion finds you. Sometime in late 2009, I started writing for IAB and ever since then it has been a roller coaster ride for me. An amazing experience that has taught me a lot, taken me to new places, driven some great cars and met some amazing people. When you don't find me on IAB (very rarely), you will find me either at a coffee shop or an eatery or at the nearest gadget store. Hope you enjoy IAB as much as we do!

The boys at BigDaddyCustoms are on the front page again, impressing us with yet another custom creation.

After presenting replicas of a Ford Mustang Eleanor and a Range Rover Evoque, the talented chaps have brought forward a Chevrolet Camaro replica based on the ‘Indian Muscle Car.’

That’s right, we’re talking about the HM Contessa!

The HM Contessa is the most revered car in the Indian automotive scene. For our international audience, the HM Contessa is a GM Vauxhall Victor FE which was licensed to Indian auto maker Hindustan Motors so that it can be sold in India. It may look like a muscle car but it ain’t got no small block Chevy. It has a 1.8L Isuzu engine which generates a modest 75 horsepower.
