Front wheel/curb camera

If a Camaro can have a back up camera, why can't it have a front wheel camera? Those $5,000 wheels ain't cheap to fix or replace!

They could put a little spot light & camera up in the wheel well so you can see at night when pulling to the curb. You can't see the wheel from inside.

I bet some of you fabricators could come up with something!




This car belongs to a friend of mine. He makes a lot of money fixing dents in tops. That's why I'm gettin' a vert!

PS: Maybe I should just do it and patent it; no, I don't have the time.

Sort of reminiscent of those old side walk feeler rods but high tech eh?

Yep. Maybe I could take the back up camera on my new vert and just transfer the location!

I have never heard of this, but its not a bad idea. Kinda worthless though if you can learn the perspective points

Looks like they are on the wrong side! Had those on some cars I owned way back.

Depends on the country Those were a terrible 'appearance' mod years ago. Thankfully it went away... or so I thought

Yeah, but a hi tech version won't even be seen, but you could save the appearance of your wheels (which is the appearance of your car) before you scratch them up trying to learn the perspective points.
