I hope no one throws rocks at me for this. I purchased this model about 3 years ago as the beloved "Milner" coupe from American Graphitti. I love that coupe, but I want to make it look a little more "old school." I painted the chrome rims orange, primered the body, ditched the front fenders, re-worked the suspension on both ends and detailed the engine. I'm sure most of you have noticed I have been slowly working through my collection taking outside pictures. . .

Very cool Eddie. I have a diecast buddy that took one and made it look like it was in an accident, to go along with the end of the movie were Milner died in an wreck to recreate that it's cool as well :nicejob Very cool the way you made it look great job and I love the ZL1 banner as well :cheers

Could be couple of reasons: save weight; help keep engine cool; looks racier!

Eddie, I Love the look!!!! I would probably channel (lower) the body on the frame, and ditch the rear fenders, ... but thats my way!

Your way is a HUGE improvement!! :cheers
