'66 Twisted Intentions, Pro Touring Series.

Post by GothicKustomz on Tue 23 Apr 2013, 7:24 am

This is my first ever Pro Touring build, so, it will be a kustom, note to self: next time use the '70 chevelle L88 hood scoop, not the Corvette, Vette slopes front to back, Chevy slopes side to side, DOH!

Whew, ok Nascar front chassis, now added, gives me just a Lil lower ride hight, and I can use the roll cage and supporst, along with the front suspension, all from the Nascar, by the time this is done, you wont be able to tell where the stock '66 ends, and the Nascar begins:

OK, this might confuse some of you, I changed the thread to Twisted Intentions Pro Touring Series, for a reason, there will be 4 cars to this, yea the cars are not common to being done into Pro Touring, an well, I'm just getting itchy fingers dieing to get started on the other 3 as well, BUT! yes they all will get finished, I just thought I would put them all into one thread, and see how it goes, as they all are Pro Touring, or, well, will be, so with out further ado, here are the next 3 on the block:

1965 Pontiac Bonneville:


1966 Buick Wildcat:


1969 Ford Galaxie 500 XL:

Looking good, twothumbsup even if the Ford is the odd one out (the other three are basically the same full sized GM body shell), shame AMT didn't do a '65 Oldsmobile.

Mate thats the way google works, it pulls pics from every where, 1:1 forums and model forums etc, once its uploaded onto a computer, it will pop up somewhere on image search.
