  1. Somebody I follow on Instagram recently bought a G-body Monte Carlo SS Aerocoupe, a version of the personal luxury car with an extended rear window that was produced for NASCAR homologation purposes. Around the same time, my boyfriend bought each of us a 1988 Buick Regal promo model and had the idea of a build-off for customizing them. My thought process went something like... "the Monte Carlo and Regal were both G-bodys in the 80s then a new generation was released on the W platform... Monte Carlo Aerocoupe... fastbacks are cool... what if W-body Regal Aerocoupe?" I bought a 1996 Corvette promo for cheap on eBay to scavenge the hatch glass, centre console, and seats from, held the parts next to each other, and started hacking away. I might have done better with a slightly bigger rear window, but I think I can extend the C-pillar with styrene strip to make the lines flow nicely. Everything is just mocked up with blu-tack now. I've cut out the trunk lid to follow the contours of the Corvette hatch. I cut off the seat bosses and filed the centre tunnel a bit for clearance to mount the Corvette seats and console. I also cut off the interior tub's package shelf -- the Corvette's trunk floor will fit behind the rear seat instead. A side view of the position of the rear window -- I'll close the gap with styrene strip Top view of how everything should fit together with the new rear window and trunk floor
  2. hi! I'm Alison. Born and raised in Flint, Michigan, currently live in Ferndale just outside of Detroit. My interests tend toward 1980s and 1990s cars and station wagons, both in 1:1 (my daily driver is a 1991 Buick Roadmaster Estate Wagon, and I also own a 1989 Lincoln Town Car and a 2009 Mini Cooper Clubman JCW) and in models (I have a whole shelf of 1:64 diecast longroofs and I collect and mutilate 90s promos). I've been lurking here for a while and now I have a WIP to show off, so I decided to register!
