I've decided to put this one back on the bench...It'll be built in the classic 80s ProStreet style. Solid Centerlines, possibly mono-chromatic paint, not quite sure yet. Been tinkering with it, will post pics soon.

May even see a Jeep hauling it on a trailer B)

I was hoping somebody would jump in with a Pacer. B)
Now somebody grab a Gremlin and we'll be officially underway.

Hey Chuck - I'm already there! Check out my reply from the 10/12: I'm in with a '76 Pacer that I originally built in late 1975 for my Mom. I'm doing a complete restoration on it, for her AND this CBP. Originally built as a metallic blue Pacer X, it will now be a bare-bones bright red base model with dog dish hubcaps, 3-on-the-tree and a tan bench seat interior, replicating the car she actually owned for a decade before giving it to me. It'll be about ad different from Jeff's model as possible and still be a Pacer! (I'm looking forward to seeing a Pro Street Pacer! :D )

That is so cool. I can't wait to get my hands on a few of the kits when they come out.

Oh, I know, just didn't see a pic! :lol:
I'm actually thinking of picking up one of those terrible Lindberg Gremlin kits just for fun.

RMR kit or Spec Cast model? Either way, soooooooo stoked!

Did a test-fit of the 'Vette chassis, Viper engine (with modified Vette bellhousing), and Matador body- It's either going to be fully sculpted, street-rod style underhood or have a couple fully plumbed turbos- looks like there is going to be a LOT of dead space under the hood, even with a giant V-10 stuffed in there.

That would be the SpecCast pre-painted diecast my friend, with different wheels/tires added.

Couldn't pass it up, loved the paint scheme :wub:

KNEW I forgot something! This would also bring Willys, Kaiser and Frazer into the mix... any of those last two in kit form?


I can think of only Revell's Henry J, but I bet there is a die-cast of it, too.

Not to worry- the Matador will be out of project purgatory soon enough- the Hornet is almost done, and the apocalyptic Hummer is only inches away. Even then, I might dig out the Matador when I'm working on the others.
