I would be more inclined to do an obscure build on a muscle car that's NOT A Ford, chev dodge or plymouth. Meaning Pontiac, Buick,olds, Amy etc

Freak, lighten up!  At least he's not wanting one of those idiot Duke cars..!!!!   Close, though!

Oh I wasn't trying to be a jerk. That TA could be whipped up in no time. What are some other options?

No Probs!  I just think that the Duke craze has run it's course.  Like a month after the show was cancelled!  It goes to show what Hollywood can do with a group of "hero" needy folks!

Funny you should mention Pontiac as "an obscure build"...when Pontiac released the '64 GTO they started the muscle car trend. The term Muscle Car was coined to describe the first "Goat".

Ok  if you're talking obscure movie cars and Pontiacs, What about the 70 Pontiac GTO from the movie " Two lane Blacktop"?  Or the 77 Pontiac Firebird  from "The Wraith"?

If you can't find or afford to buy it, Build or make it yourself.

 

On my bench: 57 Ford skyliner, 56 chevy gasser, 57 ford gasser, 2- 72 Novas , 69 nova, 54 chevy fieldcar, 61 Galaixe ,  63 Buick electra convertible..along with  a handfull of stalled builds I need to finish. Basicaly too many.

Do you know what a community build is?

It's a way for modelers to get together and build under a theme. You'd be better of starting again and say something like "build an obscure muscle car" or "build cars from Cannonball Run" and ask for participants and give a deadline. I'm sure there will be a few that will join you.

So it has to be a Pontiac T/A built with a police car theme.?  Or can it be a Pontiac police car with T/A theme parts???  Had to be the devil's advocate!  Sounds like fun!

Are CBP rules going to be posted, along with a deadline date?  Maybe this whole thing should be moved to the CBP area????  Sounds like fun.......................
