AVS SHADOW CHEVROLET PROTOTYPE
About this creation
An addition to the excellent Classic Race Teams Group

The first AVS Shadow was this lowline prototype built for the 1970 Canadian-Amercian (Can-Am) challenge. It was unusually low and captured the attention of Road & Track who put it on their cover and called it the "most radical Can-Am yet". Others have called it the ‘go-kart’ or ‘roller-skate’. The car's creator, Don Nichols called it “the two dimensional car. I call it "A Slice of Stealth".

Take a look



It has a Chevrolet 90º V8 in the back. And no, it's not growing palm trees, the intake trumpets should be black or grey and I don't have enough of either colour. You'll see a soloution shortly but I thought I'd put this detail in.

The engine is not up to standard so you won't be seeing it ;-)









Thank you to Lego builder, Chinchilla and Firas for helping me find a good rear exhaust solution, they should be oval, I think these wall bricks are the closest thing.

I like the rear of this car. In fact I like it from all angles lol







Here you see my solution to the tree trumpets...A bazooka lol

No it's not a Bazooka it's some kind of supercharger turbo thing. It looks cool whatever it is!



I thought this would be an relatively straight forward build but I was wrong, turned out pretty cool though I think, yet again very smooth but there is a stud showing somwhere, can you spot it?

Quoting Builder Allan Awesome! Looks very accurately shaped. I really like that smooth appearance :-) There's a couple of studs showing actually - one on the steering wheel and one on the back of that huge turbo.
Thanks! It was a trick question lol, I actually meant solid studs and there is a black 1x1 round at the front of the giant turbo thing. Thanks for looking Allan! :-)

Like Ape said, the car's shape is simple enough that when I saw the thumbnail, I thought it was a four-wide. And then when I opened the page It was so much more detailed than I had expected! Nice work, I like the use of palm tree parts, very clever!

Quite a simple build, and this it doesn't look as impressive as some of your other cars, but that's only because the real car is quite a flat easy shape, so still a 5/5 : ) Top quality

Wow, fantastic! I really love this design, it's very sleek. (Have a kind of Batmobile impression, too ...)

Very strange-looking. It looks more like an NPU on wheels, than a car ;-)

Awesome! As always the level of details is great. THe whole car is excellent, but my favorite part is the rear. 5 smilies!

The old UOP Shadows. Man how I love the Can-Am cars. I'm more partial to the McLaren M6Bs, but this is one fine piece of machinery. I like how you did the trumpets for the motor.

I agree with Luke. Of it had a turbine between the front wheel s on the hood it would look like the Michael Keaton version Batmobile

Well done! It seems a bit simple, but I suppose that's okay. This is the car that you were asking advice about in the CRT group right? I see you've found a solution for the exhausts. -LB Jr.

Please tell me they mounted a bazooka to the real car. Please? Lol, I like the shadowy look of it, obviously, and the engine.

Quoting Nick Barrett I assumed this to be a bit flat. It's 2ft high, knee height lol Thanks Nick

very smooth! it really has a death race 2000 feel to it, especially with the 'cannon' lol, you used track parts for the rear, have nt you? a nice effect!

Back to cars again I see! The curves on here are unreal. The shapes and lines you achieve are superb.

Mate this is absolutely spot on, a perfect recreation. I can’t find the stud unless it’s the one on the back of the ‘supercharger turbo thing’. Love the rear of the car and the exhausts look great. Another amazing car.

Quoting Patrick Star This is really nice!I love the curvy shape and the rear end!Well done as always!P.S,i'm currently working out the syncro,that you reccomended :-)
Thanks Patrick. That's awesome, can't wait to see that, I think it will be a hit!!

Quoting Mattyy 666 I like the slick and smooth look of this, very amazing. I really believe you when you say it wasn't that straightforward to build, because these can be the hardest to get perfect, but you really nailed it, great job!
Thanks Matty, It was a challenge especially the rear end!

Without knowing of this prototype, I assumed this to be a bit flat. Having looked at the real one, I see it's bang on! Another very fine car from you, even though it's far too smooth for my taste ;-)
