    Red coupe looks like a true "hot rod". The other photo....well, a bit too "blingy".

    Red is nicer of the two.
     
  13. I like the red one better

    Probably because that exhaust looks bad to me.

    Well, I like the black version better. Sure the polished engine is kinda flashy, but overall I like it way better than all those "slammed" on the ground A's that are so popular lately. The red version is just, well, "yawn" to me. Oh, and I think that the headers are not as bad as those "zoomies".

    i like it. the black looks more of a early 90s street trod to me. a lot of billet.
     
  24. This car would have looked good in the 80's and would look good now,,a simple understated hot rod never goes out of style,,sorry,the red one does it for me. HRP

    I like both, but personally, I'm not a fan that header style & that big rear tire/wheel combo. I'd love to see balanced front & rear wheels (preferably bias plys) & lake style headers. Nice car, either way. Keep up the good work!

    I think the black version may be more steet rod than the red version. Polished four bars front and rear, fat radials, electric fan, disc brakes, large blob of polished and chrome engine, needs some colored pieces to break it up abit.

    I think the black version looks very nice, and appears to be well done, just not what i'm into. As long as you like it than you are good to go, drive and enjoy it, that's what it's about.

    I like the red one personally, but maybe some pie crust slicks would help the black version, gives off a 60's drag vibe to me
