Perfectly hideous. And I mean that as a true compliment.

I hope the Hooters girls show you their appreciation.

This is one Amazing build, Back when I was younger these were the way everything was Customized, no stone left unturned, some Customs were Wild and then the very mild Customs, builds like this would always come from the West Coast, Midwest and East Cost had the More Mild Cars. The Midwest always dropped the Rear of the Cars, The West alway's dropped the Front, The Chopped Top seemed to spred like Wild Fire. But anyway that you looked at this Builds, it was alway's a Love or Hate deal, myself as a Old Guy, I've always have respected the Workmanship of these Builder's and to make a Minature Copy of a onetime eye catcher such as this, with so much detail,I Vote a Hugh Yes to what John has done here. Way to go John, you nailed it to a tee!!! I don't care what those who don't care for this Car have to say, I'd tell them to shut up and to not even make a comment!! Oh by the way my Wife and I spent our 52 Wedding Anniversay in the ER, I Busted up my Knee, so much for Party Time!

 

Michael.........Happy Anniversary.......sorry to hear about your knee........get well soon........you will look back at that day and have a laugh.........thank you so much for you compliment.........the next custom I make is as wild as this one........but,it will be another challenge.

John, your skill and workmanship just blows me away..!!  I can't believe that you even attempted to build a replica of this vehicle..... but you nailed it to a " T ".  you sir are a craftsman in our little plastic modeling world.  Fantastic job.

Hello.......thank you all for the kind comments.........I really do appreciate them........I modified a few bumpers from my parts box........to fit this build......I painted them Alclad......I added the headlight lenses ........I got the fur liner on the trunk lid and also attached the spare tire.........I added all the spin Knock-offs for the wheels .......I also added "ProTech" valve stems.......I made some front markers painted Alclad and painted the inserts  pink nail polish........I will add the plates and rear taillight lenses tomorrow.........I just about have this build wrapped up...... I just need to add a few more details as well......thanks for looking
