Same story on the Cattleac- sad thing is it is 90% completed at this point- it's that last 10 percent that's breaking things.

l wish l could post pics! l have a '67 1/2 "Palamino" l started a few months back. l used a junk '67 lmpala body, cut the roof & deck lid off, leaving the rear, vertical part of the trunk in place. Next l cut the roof & top edge of the bed/tailgate from a '68 (hence '67 1/2) el Camino. l cut it to fit the curves of the lmpala's rear fenders & got it very close to perfect! Very little putty/filler will be involved. l will also be able to use the el Camino's bed floor & inner walls. So far it looks like GM could have made it. l had planned on building it as a factory stock phantom (is that an oxymoron?) car. l don't think the hot-rodder in me will allow that though!

The 'Cattleac' is as close to finished as it's ever going to get- should have pics up shortly!

The lines flow ALOT better then what I attempted to do at first.I see lots of superglue and dremel time in my future.I also had someone give it a name, The El Kacharger
