I like the new wheels.
Headlamps and front fenders, ah, as long as you are happy.
But I'm pretty traditional about classic car design.

Very nice. I like the wind up key. :cheers:
I'd like to see more of the engine bay. How did you keep the intake under the hood, and the exhaust to the right? I would also consider a brace for the roll bar. Maybe a bolt-on strut?

I'm more interested in the chrome bumper Vette in the garage...

The car is chain drive which allows the motor on the passenger side along with the exhaust... Rich

So much sportier than before. Nice job. I like the color, fenders, the flat black stripe. Very nice.
