Stock motor? Naaah...That's the V10 for the Dodge Sidewinder kit. The Omni has a puny 4-cylinder engine, and it was FWD. This beast will be mid-engined.

The wheels also come from the Sidewinder kit.

I was thinking that looked like a v10 but was not sure on it. Are you looking for any parts for it?

At least I don't need to now. I gotta scratchbuild the drivetrain system, which will be like the on used in the Lamborghini Countach. I'm 50% done with that. I'll also have to scratchbuild the suspension, and a few other components...

I've always wanted to do a project like that, just need to pick the right subject.
Perhaps a Stealth with a B-1 in it, or perhaps a Hemi.
Good luck on your build. It sure has some potential.

Hey guys! Back on the forum...I've been reaaally busy between work and my own forum.

Not much progress lately--I've been sidetracked by a Dodge Monaco I'm workin' on...I do have some new pictures that I'll be placing on the album soon.

Kustombuilder, I bought that kit on eBay...I just did a search for 'mpc 198*' so that it would bring up all 80s MPC models available...Those kits usually go very cheap...this one cost me around $7.

Today I received my MPC 1928 Lincoln Locke Phaeton...I'm gonna build it as a 50's-style hot rod. Yeah, I know I'm sick.

i would put this in Pro Street before Street Machine. The two ran real close together in the 80s to start the name. After the Muscle car war was done Street Machine was the name the kids would look at but the rules on this was a body and any motor they could stick in to the car with HP (blower or supercharger) and Wide wheels that stuck out of the fenders. From the mid 70s to the mid 80s this was the trend Then one night some one thought that a pro stock looking car on the road would beat the State Laws on Wheels sticking out. (6inch in most states) they tubed it then put a full tube frame and light'en the car up close to half the weight. the Name Pro Street Was born. And still strives to day.
