Jeff/Rick-That was my first comment when Johnny Hunkins asked me if I wanted to get in on this. It's absolutely true and probably won't ever change.

However, if the hobby has become nothing more than a handful of cars that are deemed "good investments" and rest is simply wasting money then it's time for me to find a new hobby.

While I love Camaros, I've probably rendered 200 of them over the past few years. To a lesser degree, I've done a lot of Trans Ams, Mustangs, GTOs, Novas, Chevelles and even E-body Mopars. All of which, I happen to love as well. They'll always be popular and I'll always find a challenge when working on them. It's refreshing to see something different come across my desk once in a while though. Perhaps it's the lure of uncharted territory or a chance to give that awkward teenage geek a fighting chance. Who knows.

At the very least, it's a good way to show off some ideas for inspiration to the people that are non-conformists and happen to love the C and D-list cars and shoveling money into them to make THEIR dream car isn't a concern. Would I buy one of these and build it? Probably not but it's sure cheap to draw up what a really cool build could look like.

Very cool. And Ben you always do a very nice job on yours.

That blue Mustang looks sleeker and not as dated as the other cars to me, at least in the cool rendering. Ok, now someone build it.

Thumbs up

I had a 73 Laguna (same body style as the 76) I had G60's out back and 70's up front on ET style slot rims, big ol 15 inchers I always remember the swivel bucket seats, My girlfriend at the time had the Plymouth version, the Volare, too funny....... nice job on the renderings.

That Mustang rendering was actually done for a project that IS actually being built. I just ended up using it for that article as well. It's gonna have a Ford V10 and a stretched wheelbase. If you're on facebook just look up Be Cool Bomber project.

I'm going to look that up now. The mustang looked great.

And Ben, you're 1000% correct on your previous reply. I love seeing different/nonconformist builds. I just wish I could fund them myself.

So glad to see you do an F-body Mopar. I'll connect if I'm able to find the right candidate F-body wagon. Ideas spinning in my head...

Awesome renderings Ben. I think they all look great. My fave is the 442.
