On one hand, "Here we go - here's where the love for the '71-'73s starts taking off."  ::thumb::

 

On the other hand, "Oh great - now every copy-cat hack's going to build one."  :shootself:

 

 

Regardless, the days of the good deals are winding down.  Cue up all the Gas Monkey Wanna-be flippers... we're about to see a deluge of over-priced turds hit the markets.

If they guys from Roadkill have anything to do with it, its going to be real turd for sure.

It's seems their style resembles one of my kids well used hot wheels cars with a set of Craigers on it. I can't say I'm into their stuff except to say that owning one of their cars..... never stressing the door dings.

I still see a pretty flat panel. Looks like the angle that runs from the nose to the door is mimicked only in the first few inches of the quarter just after the door. Then the test of the quarter is flat. I really thought that would be different. Need to see the car finished. Preferably in person. Pictures often say a different story. Cars looking cool. All metal is beautiful to look at. I just hope the gloss painted doesn't do something weird when it bounces off those two plain.

Paint is a good point Angelo, if you take notice on the new camaro ,where the door meets the rear panel the quick contrast in angle makes the paint look weird like a different color even sometimes pending on light.

Ya. The Camaro. I hope I get past that same issue on my own build.

I like that a LOT!!!

Great lines so far. Ok, it doesn't look exactly like a 71 anymore but there's the point in customizing something if it still looks exactly the same afterwards.

It's still clearly a 71 body though only with some changes.

Can't wait for it to be done.

Proportions look really good. A coat of clear on that metal and call it a day.

Ya,  very cool rendering, I don't see those angles on the build though. Lots more mods on deck lid angle and dimension ,etc coming I guess. Nice !!!

I like it. Can't wait to see the finished product. I appreciate the level of creativity and attention to detail going into the project.

...it's a good thing some people just don't listen.

 

This Mach will be gorgeous.

Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic! ::thumb::
