  1. I'm too lazy to look through all the pages so im not sure if this has been said, so sorry if it has. I think that if dodge needs a small compact car, that this would definately be the one, i wont argue with that. But i dispise the fact that it has the "Dart" nameplate on it. It is probably meant to sell the car but it doesnt have the "mean looks" of the original darts, IMO. It looks foreighn. I know thats because, well, it pretty much is but i think that they should have been creative and come up with a new name that would sell the car. It reminds me of the Ford Flex and how in its concept stages had the "Fairlane" nameplate on it. I was a full size SUV while the fairlane (in the 60's at least) was an intermediate, family sadan/coupe. So once agian, sorry if it has been said but, i think it should have a different name cause it kind of soils the "Dart" name, IMO.

  2. i comment on what stands out to me. someone said earlier that it might have to do with people being a fan of that builder, but i personally dont look at who built it before i comment. most people here could probably build better then me but i dont have the time to comment on every single persons post. plus (i dont mean to offend anybody) but if you see something you dont like you arent allowed to say anything about it, which almost leaves you no choice but to not say anything at all. while i always appreciate a good attempt im not gonna completely lie and say something looks really good when it doesnt. i would rather someone tell me they didnt like my build then lie to me and tell me it looks good even when i know it doesnt.

  3. I have a question. Why do we keep wasteing technolagy on cars that dont last very long, for instance you have an engine that will go 500,000 miles but the car will only last 12 years wich would probly be somewhere around 120,000 miles so then you have a broken car and a perfectly good engine that will go to wasted. Also dont we all hope that NOTHING, EVER breaks cause if it does your gonna need a computer guy from NASA to fix the dang thing (sarcasm of course). In some cars you cant even change the transmission fluid so how long before you cant even change your own oil? i guess we can say bye to the days where your car breaks down and you fix it on the side of the road, for god huh? just my 2 cents

  4. alright so i got this for my birthday and have been working on it ever since, quit a bit the last few days and its almost done probably next Saturday because I'm not building during the week right now but anyways here it is







    i have a little more than that done but I'm too lazy to take pictures right now so thanks for looking

  5. an ss 396 with a 427??? the only thing thats different is the wheels and seat, i wasnt gonna wait a couple more months and pay probly 7 more dollars for wheels and a seat lol thats why i just got this one plus it was on clearence

  6. finished it last night cause i had absolutely nothing else to do and i just has some final pieces to put on so i did nd here it is

    the interior







    not to happy with the plating on the valve covers but thats the only thing I'm not happy with so i hope you like it.

  7. k well, another boreing day today so i worked on this some more, all i did was put in the engine and drive shaft, put the decals on, and glue the interior tub to the chassis, and put the suspension and wheels on so here it is



    shine with no clear or polishing at all, i used some quick detailer before the decals but thats it, the streaks you see are from wipeing the water off from the decals



    still have to put in windows put in the radiator and hoses and put on the bumpers and lights and mirrors and windshield wipers so not too much. thanks for looking

Cotto, thats exactlywhat im gonna do is get a dictionary to right on a friken forum. Are you catching my carcasm here? lol jk, but yeah seriously im probly not gonna do that now im done with this conversation!

  9. i havent had a new kit in a while, and i wanted to build one really badly so i got one today and heres all the work done to it in just one day! its about 50-55% done right now





    here is what it looks like now, the back axel isnt painted or glued on and the wheels arent on but i wanted to see how it sits, so basicly that but without back weels or a axle is where im at, hope you like it
