Back when the 1st gen Firebirds were in the development stage, there were a couple of concepts the designers were toying with. The picture below is from the book The Fabulous Firebird. It shows two concepts that share a lot of Camaro cues. Thought ya would like to see... what if. :)

Those are more signature Pontiac front end styles then Cuda IMO :D
Also, they have the Camaro single round headlamp style.

'67 Tempest



1968 GTO

The split grills have been a hallmark in Pontiac design. Another consideration was the Endura bumper like the '68-9 GTO's, but that was nixed. That was just a GTO feature.

I know its a pontiac signature but the execution to me as he said resembles a cuda. That was the first thought I had as well.
