Interesting, but I'm not a big fan of the color...maybe if it were all black or something!

Call me "strange" but I like the paint scheme and the front end treatment.

Good thing the hobby has room for everybodySmile!

yeah the idea is not bad but the craftsmanship is a little sketchy i think. you can see all the rivets holding the skirt especially on the rear end photo.

I do kinda like the flares! Reminds me of old school vintage vans! (I used to have a 77 Dodge with shag carpet and all. I wanted fender flares but it rusted before I had a chance to mod it up!

I was just thinking the same thing. Kinda reminds me of one of those custom vans that they over-did.

I like a good restomod just as much as the next guy, but there are definitely some cars out there that looked like they drove by the parts store with the crap-magnet turned on.

Can't say I'm a big fan of this look... but, to each his own.

Finally. Someone with some sense when it comes to paint schemes (of course, the gray should be white...). Big Grin

In some ways I like the rather wacko treatment, but with the craftmanship as mentioned, I think I'll pass. But you're right, BT, to each his own.

I too kind of like the front end but hate the rear end. Especially hate the way the blue does not follow the body but curves and has a corvette shape also don't like the side scoops.

OK - looking again... still can't get there from here. Sorry.

Must have something to do with the almost Dallas Cowboys colors or something... (barf)
