Fantastic! 

Reminds me of an episode of Futurama, where they're at the spaceship/car dealer and the salesman is trying to sell Fry in to buying the Thundercougarfalconbird. hahaha

Thanks, everybody! I'm glad you're enjoying it but the fact is that I was trumped on all counts by the vehicle that inspired this build. Check out the Studebaker Astral:

Here's the secret recipe that I used (please erase your computer memory after viewing this or else the Men in Black will have to do it for you.)

That's the Monogram Mythos kit, R&R Resin 1957 De Soto, Revell "Experimental Turbine" kit and assorted sporks. None of the above, except the sporks, are anything to brag about and are best used for unintended purposes. It went together about like it looks. The engine was assembled with a lot of improvisation and a few bits and pieces from the Mythos' Ferrari mill. The instrument pod is one of those TV's from the old Johan kits. Steering wheel is 1960 Dodge. Here are few random photos from the build to illustrate.

Again, thanks to everybody for the kind comments. I'm glad you all like it because I sure had fun!
