Hi Guys :)

 

let me introduce you to a vette rear engine. as it would have existed if Chevrolet was finalized one of its concept cars for the road. my first idea was to put the engine in rear center position, but I did not succeed, so I placed cantilever, as the concept XP819.

Interesting. Has a bit of Chevy Astro II look it. Appropriate color choice too.

Very interesting concept. 

 

I like the slot car's hood a lot more than the severe ventilation gap in the 1/25 car's hood.

 

Nice work.   B)

Cool idea!

 

The 1/32 build is my favorite, much sleeker! B)

Both very nice.  Slot car is my favorite of the two, but they are both quite nice.
