Whoa... those pillars are not just thin, they're almost ethereal! 

 

Man, there's no rollover strength in that thing, is there?  Freaky...

 

Looks like a cool kit, though!

I just noticed the wheels look like the Hot Wheels 'Ultra Hot' wheels:

Fascinating...I'd seen pics of the 1:1, didn't know it was kitted.  The kit seems to be inaccurate as far as some details like the side windows...

It looks like someone drove a Fiero through Pepboys!

Interesting spot on the Ultrahots wheels! 

 

In its day, this thing was well-lauded, it seems. There was an article in a 1981-82 magazine (Motor Trend, I think) that called it the "most successful showcar ever". WTF?

 

I agree with the Pepboys analogy. It's more like it was a reject for a "future car" from Back to the Future II, though.  

 

I still think it needs a trunk mounted laser cannon, like some crazy "future technical".

It's odd. but not too bad.  Kind of reminds me of a vector.

Now THAT is an eclectic collection of kits, good sir! I like it!

 

I'm still not sure about this car. It would make a dandy speedboat, though... Seal up the wheel wells, open the roof, put a fishing seat between the headlights...

Looks like a candidate for Death Race 1980.
