TARDIS Hot Rod
What if Dr. Who drove a hotrod? This might be the answer. I was planing on using the Viper engine for another build but a blue rod with red accents made sense to me, & since I already had the engine built... why not?
About this creation

A pretty simple dashboard. I used the Aircraft wheel because I wanted to do something special for the TARDIS.



Fold-out rear-seat, my first actually. It was easier than I thought it would be.


I wanted to make the look of the rod match the era the Police Box (1950s) so I gave it an Art-Deco look & the two look pretty good together. I've incorporated the head-lights & tail-lights into the fenders & shaped the radiator grille like the TARDIS





No time vortex powering this baby, but the Viper V10 is pretty close. I used the elephant trunk piece for the exhaust pipes (they are a really good shape & diameter for this application). The recessed door panels were easier than they look ;)











Dunga dungdung dunga dungdung dunga dungdung dunga dungdung, dunga dungdung dunga dungdung dunga dungdung dunga dungdung... woooooo hooooo oooooooo, oooooooo wooohoooo



I gave it a white interior because I didn't want too much red & I think it suits the blue exterior. Single bench seat because I don't think buckets would've suited






my first rod to have four doors, 2 suicide & 2 forward-swing. This gives the TARDIS Rod the proper TARDIS doors




I'm always using a small-block Chevy V8 but for the TARDIS it needed something new & awesome. So the TARDIS looks 1950s on the outside but ultra-advanced on the inside. I tried to do the same thing with the design of the "non-tardis" parts. 1950s on the outside, & new on the inside.



Designing this rod was harder than it looks. The most popular models for rods are form the 20s & 30s, by the 1950s cars no longer had running boards & protruding fenders. Making the non-TARDIS parts look like they match with the TARDIS was a bit of work but I'm happy with the outcome.

Definitely a strange combo! But, being a rabid Dr. Who fan myself, I can certainly admire your work :)

Quoting Nathan Andrews VERY cool. But shouldn't it be bigger on the inside? *SLAP*

Awesome idea! I love how you integrated the phone booth? with a hot rod. I don't watch Doctor Who, though, which is why I don't exactly know what the blue thing is. Great rod as well, the rear fold out seat is terrific.
