If you wanted to do dual cowls, l'm sure you could find a couple airplane windshields that would work ?

May I make a suggestion? Look at it from a different perspective. You're trying to make the GTO look like a roadster. Make a roadster look like a GTO instead.

I'm building a GTO into a roadster without losing the idea that it's a GTO.

Thanks Randy, I'll keep looking.

 

This project is waiting for the flu I'm currently fighting to subside. More soon. I hope.

Exciting build Rob. I'll keep an eye on this. I've been inspired by Gary's concepts before, just never bothered to look for his whole catalog. Thanks for providing the link.

To duplicate this type of concept rod, starting with a 1/32 body might be the easiest approach.  That said, I like what you're doing, trying to create a model of a feasible 1:1.
