Cool Daytona, I have one in my stash I was thinking of trying to convert to a '93 like I used too own.

Great looking.  I was working at a Dodge dealership also and probably had one or two of those as demos.

I'm always amazed at the polarized opinions on cars like this. People either loved or hated them, but I don't seem to see any "meh" on the topic!

 

The kit itself is probably as well engineered as the real thing, if that makes anyone feel better!

Very nice!   Love the carphone and antenna.  Period-perfect!

I know what you mean, Dominik. I mean, these things were everywhere at one point, but no one builds the kits of them. Sure, they're not '57 Chevy-level classic yet, but these things are getting into 25 years old now, and that's "vintage" for car restoration. I love to build cars like that because so many people see them and say "I had one of those!" or whatever, and it gives them a jolt to remember their first car, or a college car.

 

I was blown away by the phone, myself. It is indeed a perfect addition to the kit!
