This catagory is about custom or retro automobile design. Basically so I can post some of my own ideas but I also would love to see your ideas. This is Just for Fun! First is a quick sketch I did in 2007 of a retro AC Shelby Cobra design. I had seen Fords new prototype and although it was very nice it was far too much of a box for me and left out some of the essential design elements that made the original AC Cobra a hit.

First without the racing stripes and than with.

I’d love to build it but I’m still recovering from the body ground effects kit and truck bed work on the Pacer.Feb. 8, 2011. I just did this sketch over the top of an AC Cobra. It’s O.K. but not really what I’m after. The rockers need to be lower and, well, it just doesn’t thrill me. When I find more time I’ll play with it a bit.Feb. 12, 2011.

I changed to foglights below and turn signals where the headlights go with pop-up headlight above.
