AEROTREC is FINISHED!


AeroTrec is an Anti-Gravity Racer, like the ones from the F-Zero and Wipeout 2097 Video Games.
It is built from parts from two Oldsmobile Aerotechs.
The Front End was Narrowed and Restyled.

The Body was Sectioned and the flat underside was Rounded Off all the way around.

The Rear End was Sectioned and Mirrored with a second Aerotech Rear End. Then the Rear was Shortened and Restyled .
