Scott! It's great to see you posting again. You were a large part of what made the early days of the 5th Gen such a blast to be involved with.

It is surprising how much better today's cars have...

Well I've reworked almost everything. Completely took apart the front, and as I started to rework it, I found the overtones of a '67 beginning to appear, so I thought "what the heck? Let's go in...

Latest update. Did a lot of tweaking and detail work. This is leaning more in the direction of the 1967 car; think 1967 Camaro and an 2018 F-35 fighter has a baby. I came up with a relatively...
