AMC styling always was quirky...


That's the nice way of saying it. :lol:

I like a lot of AMC sytling cues, but rarely did they hit a home run on any vehicle, save for the '68 Javelin IMO.

There's a lot to like about the Pacer, provided some small changes are made. :lol:

Here's a Pacer I did a few years ago. Not quite as radical, but still an improvement on the original, IMO...

Erik, that Edsel needs a longer rear... needs to be stretched a little bit between the rear window and the back end. But a cool idea!

yeah i was trying to make it look modern, i actualy stated by drawing a mustang, thats why it has the short rear.
if i had the facilitys to make fibreglass body panels, i would totaly make conversion kit for the 2010 mustang. i get the feeling it would'nt exactly sell like hotcakes tho... ;) :lol:
some people just dont like awsome cars. :lol: ;) :lol:

hmmm is need to make a teletouch transmission tho...how would i do that? lol

by the way, im almost sure i saw that that tranzam rendering in hot rod magazine. some companys making convo kits and seling them. thats a real car. :D

What if Chrysler designed a 2-door Magnum?:

This was a quick PS job, as you can still see the kink in the upper window/roof frame...but it looks a lot sleeker than the original IMO. Existing pic- I never would have chosen these wheels!

It's a shame this one never made it to production, as Pontiac had a great performance image and many styling cues to work with in the late '70s:

the mustang wagons were known as "mustang stallions".


I forget how I ended up finding this one, but what a cool barn find one of these would be:

Casey there was a dealership in Detroit that converted El Camino's like that.

Fun with Photoshop, looks like.

Lots of interesting what ifs. A phantom I've long mulled is what would an Oldsmobile version of the F-body had looked like if Olds had it's own Camaro/Firebird equivalent from '67?

Hmmm, lemme guess....Super Stock wheels, Rocket steering wheel, aluminum diff. cover, integral hood & header panel with a "widow maker" at the leading edge, and a small block Olds 350 underhood? B)
