Decided this Jeep will be my next project. It will be done hot rod style. Photo's from a hot rod magazine will show the look I am going after. Not trying to build a replica of this one but rather use it as a guide to what I want to build.

This was a neat surprise, because I'm building a model of exactly the same car! :)  I've seen that same Roadkill Episode many times and when I first saw it I had to start searching for a Jeep Model Kit. I'll post one picture of my project once I find one just for inspiration. I'll be watching this one very closely.

Just my possibly flawed logic, but wasn't the Jeep kinda the original mass-market sport-utility vehicle (SUV) ?
