Late model (2010+) printed Pro Mod/Pro Stock question

28 January 2014 - 10:01 AM

Last year some time, I seem to recall someone working in a CAD file for a late model PM/PS Camaro body. I believe the goal was to eventually offer them through shapeways or something similar. Does anyone know if that project was ever completed to offer for sale? If not, does anyone know of anyone working on something like that for the near future?

TEM '53 Vette and '68 Camaro

I recently started back on a couple of PM builds I began working on some almost 9 years ago. I worked on the funny-car cage within the chassis/roll cage:

Ghia/Porsche

I've been trying to get back into it after finishing my drag bike. Those that know me, know how much I like the Pro Touring genre and some of you know that I also have an affinity for VWs. So, I thought I would make an attempt at melding the two. Following are some pics of my Porsche-powered VW Ghia. First is some chassis work (all pics are in my Fotki, so some of you may have already seen them through the Fotki feed):

The idea is to reverse the Porsche motor and have it mid-engine for better and more efficient weight distribution:

I made a buck and vacuumed a tonneau for the engine area in place of the rear seat and the convertible:

I then made a air vent/louver system for the "air cooled" motor:
