6wide Custom '67 Ford Mustang Fastback
inspired by the star car from the 2000 remake of Gone in 60 Seconds (you know her name ;)) and built using SR3D Builder
About this creation
i thought i might get a bump in quality from using the standard uploader for the main pic... oh well! more pics (and that one ^) can be found on my brickshelf in the 6wide folder. there's a hint there of another new 6wide MOC too!

whew, i built this yesterday during a gloomy, snowed-over-and-nothing-temperature Saturday for a 6wide contest hosted by Stan Davis!
Eleanor front quarter
it's a functional 6wide car with suspension, fits two Minifigs and has opening doors. the rear hatch technically opens, but i don't know if they did on the real car (if it didn't, then mine doesn't :P). the fastback was a pain and i ended up simplifying the rear end a little. luckily the hood and front end made up for it. i'm extremely pleased with how the roof turned out as well! there's room built into it for minifigs' giant heads while wearing a few different hair-do's (or a racing helmet). i tend to get lazy when it comes to the interior, so it's pretty generic (lets call it spartan) with only a gear stick, dashboard and custom trimmed bucket seats. the side-view mirrors are also adjustable, though non-functional ;D

i surprised myself that i was able to put this together in a day (not kidding, though it started from a completely physically unrelated WIP, which i could prolly post up). this car was FUN to build and is a direct descendant of a few muscle car MOCs i've yet to officially reveal. look out for those sweet 6wide's this spring!


thanks for checking it out!
if you have any questions, comments or requests - lemme know!

Yup, the main chase is about half the movie! It also has two other chase scenes, they are much shorter, but one involves the police chasing a tow truck pulling a car! I actually decided to watch the remake today, it wasn't as bad as I thought. I'd go as far as to call it a good movie (way better plot/acting) but all the car stuff was pretty underwhelming. What did you think of the original?

Quoting Scott Bertaut Oh so that is the part you used, I think I might have a few of them somewhere. I'd highly recommend watching the original Gone in 60 Seconds, you can actually watch the whole thing on YouTube for free. The acting is laughably bad (bound to happen when your main character is played by a junkyard owner turned stunt driver who is also wrote, produced, and directed the movie) but the chase scenes are really something to behold.
hahahaha that settles it then, i'm gonna check it out asap! after you mentioned it, i asked my dad about the original and he laughed just thinking about it xD i think i read something about a 40 minute long chase scene!!?!

Quoting Scott Bertaut Wow, that is a really nice 6 wide. So this thing has a working suspension?!? Also how did you make the front wheels turn? Really good job, I love the front, still need to see the new Gone in 60 Seconds, been kind of worried it would ruin my image of the original though. Great work!
thank you, Scott! the suspension is an older LEGO piece (http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=2484c01) but the steering is just an editing trick; in SR3D Builder, you select the wheel & tire and just rotate them a little on the vertical axis. if i could photograph them in real, i'd prolly have to remove the spring-axle-piece and build a mini prop to hold the front end up, then angle the wheels & shoot. plus i need to check out the original film myself; i've heard it's better than the 2000 one!

Quoting Ron Dayes ...sweet ride eric, you jammed a lot of detail into this one! only thing im kinda confused is the roof design (its clever, but i think you could have used a simple one like on your corvette). Apart from that, real nice 6 wide. Glad to see those rides coming from you. i enjoy looking at this. many greets, ron.
thanks man, i appreciate that a lot! the roof; i tried to recreate the swooping lines from the fastback style! and i think it comes from not wanting to use those 4x6 LEGO roof pieces too much in my cars (they're still used quite a bit, just wait, but i need to keep it down). thanks again, and i'm glad to see the rear-end shot of your Caliber too!

Quoting Mister Hashtag Real sweet car man :D Do you think SR3D is better than LDD? (If so I may have to make the switch :P)
Thank you sir! I'm afraid I can't answer your question though since I haven't tried LDD :/, but I do like SR3D a lot (I researched both before choosing it over LDD). Allow me to say this: I think SR3D benefits most from the independent and dedicated community who've created the massive Ldraw parts library, which it utilizes. I highly recommend it and if you decide to try it out, let me know & I'll help if I can!
