Another reason I stopped my project is because after a while my GTO was no longer recognizable as a GTO. Just a rectangular body with a GTO-ish grill. I'm going to try the idea again with a car that has a much more recognizable sides, so someone might instantly recognize it regardless of the mods.

I have changed the rules to reflect a lack of end date. You are free to continue your builds and participating in this build off to your hearts content. I'll be happy to check out and enjoy your work. If another body comes to mind for my build I will happily join you.

My T-Bird is still on my Bench, but at the moment it's collecting idea's and dust.
I will get back to it!

I never finished mine either, good to see this back. Lets see I need to make a fuel cell and I seriously don't remember what else. Maybe I can find an old picture as the ones on here mostly disappeared. Oh yeah! The Madman is Back! http://s1181.photobu...&start=0&page=2

I haven't made any progress with my El Camino either except that I pulled it out a couple of weeks ago, watched the kit's Engine Bay and put it fast back in the box. The reason why it stopped, is the engine bay... Inner fenders are in need of styrene and there I lost the interest. But I will try to continue it, just need to finish a couple of other ones first. I'll try to get it going again early next year.

I am so happy that this one has been extended. I have made significant progress on the '66 Rambler. I filled in the hole in the hood, and worked the body as good as it is going to be. About a month ago, I was surfing through Ebay, and there was an auction of some '66 Rambler American Parts, including an unpainted hood and trunk lid, a complete 232 6, the entire interior, including the stock console, but I believe that they are from a '64 or '65. It was not cheap, but it got me to the point where I can do some painting. I was even able to get a set of wheel covers from a derelict '67 Ambassador, which is correct for the '66 American.
And yes, I did do the Ambassador.
As I bought it.
I will be quite happy if the American can come out half as good.

If there's no official end date, I'll get back in on this project. About all I have left is making the headers and side pipes. I'm kinda up in the air on whether or not I should do them. I think they will help make the car look lower. But at the same time, I'm concerned about how they will look. Maybe I should see if I can lower it more with some suspension modifications before I commit to them.

Ron, that is just beautiful. Nice save.
See Roger, that there is the reason I stopped work on the narrowed GTO. It stopped looking like a GTO. But yours, no matter the angle, that's a '57 T-bird and we can all admire the workmanship involved with the modifications.
I do have another nasty kit build in the works however. The "Lil John" Buttera, '33 Ford. When I get it back out, I'll post up some picks.
