Rob, you car is confused. Is it a Road Warrior, Rat Rod style, Pro Touring or a Street Machine? It just lacks the details to push it firmly into any of these categories. And the finish is not helping. I know, it was the look you wanted, but, as a judge we expect some pop. Everything appears to be just one piece. Subtle color shift would have done wonders. I like it, but, honestly, I would eliminate it from the judging when I first look at the table.
For the record, I was thinking about none of those things. It is a fictional build, a sort of "what if?". I had just finished reading Stephen Kings, Dark Tower series. I was naturally artistically inspired when I finished, and thought, what would a Stephen King villain drive? Rather than go with Christine, or the Dark Half's Toronado, I decided on an original piece. The criteria was, full size, low, dark, non-reflective, high horsepower, aggressive, with custom touches to make the car look rather industrial. I settled on the AMT Black Cat Cougar. The tag reads RFLAGG, King's recurring villain, The Man in Black.
I even built a Gunslinger inspired dio-base for it. Dark Tower fans will see several nods to Mid-World.
I understand than none of the above would make this get very far with a judge, and I never included this info on the build sheet, but I always thought the quality was there even if the "class" was rather ambiguous.
