    I'm really starting to love the lines on this car man.

    Hard to believe you started with a boring ol' slab-sided shoebox Ford! :eek:

    I was wondering where this was going!?!?!?!? Now I can see it I LOVE IT!!!!!! It's hard to believe that it started out as a shoebox. What are you going to do about the bottom of the side trim?

    I think he's trying to make it better, though. Hopefully it doesn't puke when it runs!

    Seriously cool car with a lot of talent behind it.

    The progress on this is remarkable!! Cannot believe how well it is shaping up. . .

    Couple of questions, tho. . .

    What is going on with the decklid? Is that what you're planning on using? What do the green tape lines represent?

    Any ideas on the windshield, yet?

    After seeing the photoshop that JamesD did, I can really "see" where this is heading, and man o' man, it is OUTTA THIS WORLD! ;):D

    the deck area will be non opening,,,im planning on using a hood from a 40 ford or something similar for sort of a boattail look,,,,the green lines represent an idea im kicking around for a raised area,,dont know if ill actually do it yet,,,

    the windsheild will be cut down from a 57 chevy windshield,,,picked it up today, in fact,,,,

    you are right,,that photoshop JamesD did is FANTASTIC,,i need to post it here later on,,,

    OUTTA THIS WORLD is my goal,,,,so mission accomplished,,,lololol :)

    THANKS a TON for the compliment;):)

    It is starting to remind me of a Chris Craft Cobra... with the Windshield and Rear Deck... a small Fin in the center would be cool!

    I can't believe it, that was a Shoebox Ford at one point, right? Would love to see a pic of the car before you started sculpting and one of how it looks now, side by side.
