    No offense Jim but i think the rear is too "SWOOPED" .I think bringing up the rear would make it look better. At least to my eye. Love the merc trim though. Hey what do i know i drive a Ford! Later Mike

    nope,,,just a 56 olds quarter section,,,,the exhaust will exit from the bottom holes where the backup lights normally go

    Jim. I'm always watching whay your doing and i'm amazed at how much energy you have and how you have no FEAR of cutting a car up till it suits you. I'm also afraid I'm gonna get on this thread and youlll be carving out a plaster mold based on your shoebox and your original car will be gone!:D
    No , seriously if I had some suggestions I would have already drawn them out. I'm waiting to see where this leads to, then i'll jump in there and throw my 2 cents worth in. I think about this thing every other day, its fun to watch this one!:D

    i cant find the shoebox!:confused:



    :cool:
     
  20. A bubble with a chrome trim band over the top similar to the Ford Mystere show car might be cool....without the big scoop on the front, though.

    Hoping to get with Greyhound tomorrow about the Olds windshield frame tomorrow.....incase you decide to go "conventional." ;)

    thanks james,,great work as usual..
     
  28. No worries. I like the idea of the Olds screen, chrome channel window frames on the doors and a bubble for the rest of the roof.

    Glad the back will be somewhat untapered. What you have would work, but only with fins to put the depth back into the body. :)
