That's right! I am building a 1/12 scale 69 Camaro Super GT Series Touring car. 

 

I picked up the 69 Camaro Street Machine kit as a partially built gluebomb for FREE at a local show/swap, the fenders and quarters were from the 1/12 scale Doyusha BMW 3.5 CSL (also a built model not complete) Thanks to Casey for this model!! (Which I pounced on in the Trades section.)

 

Wanted to do something "out of the box" what with all this Foose stuff going on and such......so I came up with the idea to graft the widebody onto the Camaro, the wheels and hood I sourced from a DUB city toy Mustang I found at Walmart for $9.00..........so.... so far I have $9.00 into this build,  and the rest will be an ongoing test of my patience.  ;) So far this has been challenging to say the least!! There will be extensive amounts of Aerodynamics added to the body and it is still up in the air if I am going to leave the hood opening and add an engine or just do it curbside.......if I do add the engine it will be a 502 c.i. twin turbo.

 

 

This mess is where I am at currently:

Think this somewhat (only Camaro) for the finished body design \/

Cool...........I built the BMW.........Germans pronounce it BMV...........back in the late 70's.  I also remember a fella doing a 1st rate build in the now defunk Scale Modeler........miss that ole mag.  Anyhow, like what you have come up with and will watch this one.
