Ok, here's an example of a car that's not too bad but still didn't quite hit the mark. The ideas were great. The double-tunneled tail and headlights, nice touch and too much at the same time. Clearly this version looks better w/out the Vette-esque rear glass. If the light tunnels had been pulled back just a bit, well, maybe 1/2 of what they are, there'd be a lot more balance to the look. She's a victim of "If some's good, more's better", but I think not. Molded bumpers, tube grilles, chopped, overall way better than some of the other examples shown. 37kid, no I don't think that's a real Facel front end, nor do I think they're ugly. 39-40 Fords are lovely too. Mix the 2? I think not, but then again it wasn't built for me. I also agree that even the best of the best built some dogs, and especially the thought that they learned from them as well. Many of these cars were built during the dark days of kustoms. We got through it, we also got through the "easter egg" paints of the late 80s thru early 90s.
