A recreated shape

         Well I guess I have to do this again. When I did this yesterday I finished and hit post.The next page! This page not found then a blank screen! So Here goes again.

    Have you ever wondered where Auto designers go to school? Well, don't fret. They are just recycling old ideas, just hiding them in Gee-gaws.  I got stuck in traffic for over an hour yesterday(Rare in My Town. And the car next to me got me to thinking.

      It was an AMG SC430? Well, guess what? Remove the bump that passes for a spoiler and you have the same side profileas a 1947-48 Plymouth or Dodge, NY City, Checker Cab Before the Checker Marathon ran them out of town.

     We used to call them Utility sedans because of their size. Larger than normal families usuallly bought them. Funny though. If it's squared off, nowadays it's called a S.U.V. and Not what it actually is ( A Station Wagon).

     Remember those? Ford started with them by putting a square wood body on a Model "T". Then they picked up folks and cargo at the Train Station. Hence the name. Last one I ever saw was a five year old VOLVO. When it comes to cars I tried this, Well actually I am still trying. A cut down rear roof piece from a 67 Malibu.A shoortened body of a late model Dodge Charger four door and lots of chopping and patience.

    When it's done I hope to have a 2014 Dodge Two Door Hardtop Sports Coupe'. I have changed the front to reflect the 1972 heritage of that car. That's why the roof change too. I wish I took time for pictures because it's been a fascinating building journey.
