There are many behind-the-scenes players in the automotive industry that few on the outside ever hear of, despite their huge contributions. Heide Performance Products (HPP) is one such company, designing and building some of the most cherished cars on the streets, including the previous Dodge Daytona and Plymouth Superbird kits for the latest Dodge Challenger muscle car.

Now HPP has turned its attention to the Chevrolet Camaro and in the process developed two new kits for the car, one inspired by the original Pontiac Firebird Trans Am from the 1970s. Effected mostly by a body kit and wheels, the transformation to Trans Am includes an all-new Pontiac-style split-window grille, new front, side and rear aero, rear fender vents, trunk-lid spoiler, reworked side mirrors, and a new hood.

The other Camaro follows a fairly conventional makeover, with new wheels and tires, a custom bodykit and blacked-out headlights all featuring on the car.

The cars will make their official debut at the 2010 SEMA show, which kicks off on November 2.
