I decided to give the full detail follow up to the curbside Barely 'Cuda a more Muscle car look, So I'm using a set of Marc Nellis' 19 inch Mopar steelies, sleeved in the rear to make 23 inchers. It will be powered by a Lamborghini V12 engine, 4WD and rear transaxle.

Here is the roughed in bodywork. in the end it will look like the drawing (I hope!)

Let me know what you think.

Looks like a great project Darin. Good idea with the Lambo engine. Are you going with the gull-wing doors also?

That looks great so far. Did you lengthen the front end? You know I've never done a drawing of any of my projects. I see it in my head and start cutting.

Thanks, The art work is mine also. I try to do a quick sketch of all my custom projects. Sometimes I use photoshop, sometimes colored pencils. Here are some past ones.

Thanks Mark, The front end as a whole isn't longer, but the fenderwells, are moved foward on the fender, and the cockpit moved back which gives it the illusion of being longer. Hey next time you see Chip Foose show him this...it would be great to see him do this in full size.

The heck with Foose, show it to Daimler Chrysler. That would be a perfect companion to the Challenger.
