Here is an idea I was thinking about doing but you may enjoy. Take a 69 ford bronco. Redesign it the same style they are doing with the new mustang. Live axles and convertable. Think about it. I would buy one.

I haven't really decided witch version to make...As of right now I am working on a stock version I might modify it later on... I got pretty far last night, I got the DS door, rocker panel rear fender, rear facia and a pillar completed. Can't wait to show you.. I was thinking about making the convertible version...but that means modeling an interior as well...Yikes. so I might just stick with the coupe. I will show you an update tonight. It looks like I will finnish this project pretty fast. I am at work right now... since I have started this job, I have gotten alot faster at my vehicle modeling, so its kinda cool. Talk to you guys tonight,
Brian

THanks for all of your comments!!!

BTW thanks kbrown, its been to long

Ide say stick with the coup, as from what ive seen modeling interior is just too time consuming, when you can get away with a coupe and still have good detail.

Maybe get a body kit on the thing as 350z's are failryw ell known as tuner cars, but that shouldnt be hard. cant wait to see an update.
