A supercharged twin V8 1965 Ford Mustang Hard Top (I'll bet that's the first time you've heard those words in the same sentence). My first large scale, based on a real car that isn't a movie car... CRAZY HORSE!
PS. The main pic is the final front end design, I had to employ new techniques to get it looking as close to the Mustang's as possible
About this creation
... the view from the driver's seat... nice
... the rear end was a real pain to do, but, I finally got it looking like a Mustang's
... I played with a lot of pipe configurations before settling with this one
... originally the pipes were just going to be straight down the side of the car, but I opted for leg pipes so the doors could open
... the petrol cap is a bit big but there isn't a 1.5 diameter round plate
... from the side it appears to only have one engine
... surprise!! It has two. I didn't want to have the engines end-to-end, that would've made the front riddiculously long, my only option was to have them side-by-side.
... I tried to make it look as realistic as possible. To make this creation even remotely possible in reality, things like the batteries, fuel & water pumps etc, would have to moved to the boot.
... I chopped the roof by so much I had to take the head rests of the seats
... making the engines fit was a tough job, originally this was going to be a Mustang hot rod with no front panels at all. I gave the engines yellow accents to differentiate them from the red of the car
... inspiration? No inspiration, just wondered if it could be done. I was planning to build a twin engine car, then I started thinking of a name (Crazy Horse), and thought of cars that were named after horses

Great car! Nice details. Are you planning on building this in real bricks? 5/5 :-)
I would love to see all my creations IRB (in real bricks) but, with my financial commitments, I just can't afford or justify spending hundreds of dollars on just one build. And there are not brick shops here in Queensland :(

Yeah, CRAZY!!! Awesome. How long do you take for building a creation, average time? Because you keep posting new one not long after you sent the one before. Awesome.
depends on how much detail I want to put into it, this only took about 6 hours because I used my Lowrider coupe as a base, so half the car was already done. But my Ecto 1 took almost two weeks because of the detail.
