I was about to get mad and throw the mouse..... untill i saw from the door back! Now if he could figure out how to make a front end that doesnt look like sh1t i would be VERY impressed. When it comes to cars and women... its the curves that drive me wild, and the back half of that car has it right!

Excellent workmanship...but take a sawzall to that rear spoiler and hack 4 inches off....then you will have something that blends...

I think its hideous. While I liked Elenor, and this is a different spin on her, I can't say I think much of the clones popping up everywhere. I bet they say the same kind of thing when they see me coming though- "Oh, there's something original- another red Mustang!"

I am anti-eleanor, but aside from the grill/front end, but in my humble opinion the lines actually flow smoother than on the 67 eleanor. He did a great job on the bodywork to make it fit. Hey, at least he isn't ANOTHER copycat eleanor wanna-be.
That being said, I will keep my 67 coupe!!! (and Tig) :)

I think it looks better than the 67 Eleanor. The front is kind of 69/70 Shelbish and the rear end is just plain awesome. I don't really care for the wheels. Wonder what it would look like in another color scheme?

The guy obviously put tons of hard work into this car, but what he ended up with looks, well, disjointed.

It appears to be a collection of parts that sorta work, but sorta don't. It leaves the same impression on me that one of those Aussie Falcons does (sorry, Aussies), which is a car that just misses having all the styling cues integrated. I even see a bit of 70s AMX/Javelin styling in their with the exaggerated kick-up of the rear quarters.

I'd rather see a nice paint job and custom wheels on a basic early-70s Mach. But that is just me...

Looks like the guy followed a dream; and did a quality job of it. Maybe, if the changes were scaled down to one-half of his dream and less exagerated the results would be more appealing to me.

The only thing I don't like about the car is the Wheels.
Other than that He did a great job. Liking the 71 -73 Sportsroof cars to begin with. I think he did very well.
I would like to see the whole car in one shot rather than a chunk at a time.
My Guess is it took Lots of $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ to put that together

Not only would it blend in better, he may actually stand a small chance to see out his rear view mirror...

That actually looks cool.

I expected a pintoII (74-78 car with mustang badges) dressed up like eleanor.


If someone ever did a MII as eleanor, it should be a legal obligation to torch that car!!

I kinda like it, but agree that the rear spoiler is too big. I think it's cool when someone takes an idea that has been used repeatedly and does their own thing with it. :)
