Hey guys, well while being on another model forum ( from the UK), It got me thinking about doing a forigen car build or a excoita car build or something along those lines. what i am thinking is like a one make only build for one of them.

Another idea I was thinking about was doing one for next year that every month will be a different subject and maybe make a contest or something, just throwing these ideas out there.

If any one is interested or has an idea please share, I am thinking of starting it after the holidays , I dont need to add another build at the moment :lol:

Update- If you have an Idea list it, then after there are enough of them I am thinking of doing a vote on them.

How about doing a non-U.S. build? That would incorporate all sorts of stuff. British sporty types, Italian super-cars, German autobahn scorchers, Japanese drifters, Aussie muscle and Russian...........umm..........tractors.

Craig proposed a build for your First or Favorite car. My first car would be difficult but not impossible - an 'el strippo' 1965 Chevy II 4-door sedan. I suppose I could modify the "Rat Packer" body and use a Trumpeter Nova chassis, engine, and modified interior. I could do my first Corvair, but I'm already replicating that car for the "Glue Bomb" CBP. As far as my favorite car goes, I had a fantastic (albeit slightly scruffy) Lemonwood Yellow '66 Corvair Monza coupe that I had to sell for financial purposes a couple of years ago. That car was great at traffic lights, especially when some punk kid pulled up beside me in a 5.0 Mustang! My vanity plate said "CORVA1R" to let people know what it was that had just blown their doors off! I've already planned to build a replica of that car, since I think I've FINALLY found paint close enough to look right. Ok, I know, I know, this is a MODEL website, but I just have to show off a little:

I know she had a few body issues, but the model won't!

Yes it was very ugly and a POS, I think it was like a 60's Mercury

"Ugly" is open to interpretation. For instance, I used to own a Pacer and I never thought it was ugly, exactly, just "Different". And different for good reasons. It had great interior room (with the exception of rear seat legroom) and it's wide stance made a decent handler out of it. But the Pacer is often included in lists of ugly cars. Meanwhile, I've never liked the looks of the first two styles of Mustang (1965-66, 1967-68). Yet there are plenty of people who consider them to be great looking cars. All I can say to that is, park one next to a 1965 Corvair coupe and tell me with a straight face that the Mustang is a better looking car! Then there's the first-series Corvair. I've heard it all too often that it's a bad looking car, but it's still one of the most imitated designs ever! Again, park any comparable early 60's compact next to a Corvair coupe of the era and, at least to my eye, the Corvair comes out on top. Falcon? Comet? Rambler? Downfight baroque. Valaint/Lancer? What's up with all the body lines to nowhere?

I hope I haven't stirred up too much animosity among my friends on here with my little rant. All I'm trying to point out is that styling is purely subjective. If the CBP were for models of cars that the builder considers to be ugly, I guess I could dig up one of the '66 Mustang kits that I decapitated to use the roof for a Sport Sedan conversion on a Corvair model... :lol:

Well it was more of an POS then ugly, but remember this, to me as an 18 year old, with this big huge 60's era car, it wasnt the best looking car .

Ugly is a personal opinion thing, I condenser about every 1958 car built ugly, but say something like a 56 Chevy convertible in a red and white two tone would be pretty sharp, a 56 Chevy 4 door hardtop two toned mustard yellow and green, not so much.
I guess it would have to be up to the builder.

That's why no one forces anyone to join, I have no interest in big rigs but there is an active CBP going on for those that do.
