Ratty, Patriotic Challenger

Postby 68383 » Sat Jul 26, 2014 8:08 pm

I saw this on-line months ago and thought it would be cool to build one like it. Not a replica, since I'm starting with a $5 1970 TA glue bomb.

What would be a good license plate for this car? I was thinking of a veteran vanity plate.

Is the stance too much? Reminds me of a 70s street machine. If it is, I think I'll have to use different tires.

Personally I think the stance is WAY too much, but I like my muscle with less rake anyway...

First plate idea I thought of: RDWTBLU

I think I still have some play with the rear height, but we'll see.

For MA plates, just 6 characters, right? What about VETRAN? Or NAM VET?

Despite really liking the look of the MH slicks, I've decided not to use them. They're just too big, and are hard to work with because they're hollow.

Also adding a red rollbar.

I think the way it sat in the 8th picture was perfect, it was one of the things i personally liked about the car. AMR ICA
