The rear quarter windows have a 'cuda look on the red hard-top. Thank you Osiyo59.

Good job Osiyo59! Those are the pics I was referring to. Lots of different styles there, Mustang II,(trunk) Cuda,(c-pillars) Vega, Camaro (front grill area).
If you don't have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over?

If I had seen these before I finished all the body work on my Wagon, I would have incorporated that front end into the build. I just think it looks awesome! I will be doing it on the next one though.

It's kind of odd seeing some Chebbie-like and Mopar-like motifs on those prototypes.

But I was wondering if the original '60s Ford Allegro concept car influenced those early styling studies any.

Looking at the pics again, what I like is the lack of front bumper (the integral "molded in" front end) that is so common today. That appearance was somewhat ahead of it's time. I would love to see someone pull off this look on a Pinto in fiberglass, perhaps. Map351? Where are you?

Every custom-built convertible I've ever seen looks atrocious with the top up!  Very cool with the top down, though!  The rear windows would probably have to be eliminated.

Hi, I'm new here. Mike in Arizona. I saw one! At a bank in Palmdale CA. around 1987. It looked really good!... We didn't have digital cameras yet!
It's only good if it works!
