Yet another great muscle car from the year 1970. Does it look familiar to you at all? Well, that's because it featured the same front end, chassis, and engine as the Chevelle from the same year. It pretty much is a Chevelle, only you can haul stuff with it. So, if you feel like you're going to see the same thing all over again, go back NOW. But if you're like me, and you want to explore one of the the best years for muscle cars just a little bit further, then stay.
About this creation
Just remember, this is NOT the same model that I posted back in June of 2009! I've long since taken that model apart. (R.I.P.)
Since it turned out so nice the first time, I had absolutely no problems with bringing back this chassis design.
There were two options for the famous 454 "Rat" V8 that powered the Chevelle and the El Camino, the mild one being the LS-5, and the wild one being the LS-6. But both engines would deliver some serious speed.
Opening SNOT tailgate. I had to build it this way to make it work with the limited space I had left. (Not much room for stacking plates, you know)
Mean-looking from every angle, don't you think?
Whether you like the LEGO version or not is completely up to you, but the real one will always be awesome. And there's nothing you can do about it. :)

When is it? And is it at the Kentucky or Indiana campus?
My Sisters Friend goes too college there.
This will be my first time going, so all I know is that it's during the first week of next month at Shawnee Baptist Church in Louisville, Kentucky. Sorry if I got it mixed up with a town called Shawnee or something. I didn't know anything about a college until I saw your comment. (haha)
I love American cars from this era. Excellent shape and overall detail. I love how you leave the studs showing. I try to do this with my mocs but it is not everyone's favourite technique. Excellent recreation
One of my favorite cars! The name itself makes the ride look like a gang car. Never mind, you did a great job replicating this beauty, the chassis as usual was a nice touch; I'm building now my most complicated chassis yet, with working suspension, steering and stuff like that, and I can tell building a nice looking chassis isn't an easy work, so good job. But I would like to see a studless car from you someday, and try to use PICASA to edit your photos a bit, keep it up.
