This classic car is an alternate of Creator set 5867 Super Speedster.
About this creation
Some people might remember that I have built a classic car from this set before. However, at the time it was more of a building experiment using some unusual techniques. The result was quite alright, but I always had this feeling that it could be done better. So here is my latest attempt, which includes very little SNOT work and is also a lot sturdier. For a while I kept the looks of the front very similar to the original, but I really wanted to differentiate this model as much as possible. The only parts that are officially not included in the set are the rims, but those can easily be exchanged with the original ones...
A roadster with 2 seats and open roof.
One of the characteristics of these cars was their long rear end.
Going through some old comments on my stuff, someone mentioned your name as a great alternate builder. I can see what they mean, this thing is really nice looking. It reminds me of a cross between a Mercury Cougar and a Shelby Cobra. I actually got this set at a thrift store a little while ago, might try an alternate myself sometime.
Nate, this is just FANTASTIC (also because I'm big fan of this kind of american cars). I thought the classic car of vol.1 was cool, but after seeing this one the "old" one just disappears ;-)
It might be really time to get together again for Vol3 ;-) Keep going! -MZ
