This is another heavily modified version of Johannes R's Charger. It's a just a quick build to welcome in the new year mostly. A black Charger with a little bit of red, white, and blue.... The General Grant?! The details include an opening hood, opening doors, and a pretty good interior, considering the amount of time I spent on it. By the way, if you review this car, you don't have to rate it any higher than a 4, because I kinda messed up some stuff. (mainly the hood)

A profile shot. How about about that red, white, and blue?
Now let's take a look at the opening doors.
The seats actually turned out pretty well, even though I built them in a hurry.
Just another quick look at the seats. This definitely makes up for the boring interior I had in the Daytona!
Here's that very strange hood I was talking about. There wasn't enough room in front of the windshield to add a regular hood, so I just used my next best option: a sports car style hood that opens forward instead of backward! Well, it seemed like a good idea at the time.
AAAAGGGHHH!! It's that same boring engine design! Oh well, it looks better in blue than it did in grey.
Coming at ya! I'd like to run into you again sometime. (when you're walking and I'm driving, hehe!)
Just staring at the rear bumper.
Checking out the details! It all looks pretty good so far....
Did mention I didn't have to wreck the Daytona to build this one?
They make a nice pair, don't they? Better pick a favorite! I hope you enjoyed this car, even if it was a total disaster.
And with that, I'd like to wish everybody a happy new year! Thanks for looking!
5/5 excellent work! my superbird (where you did add a comment) is sloped for a chevy bel air `57. but i always can build my superbird again if i slope my 57` bel air. because i have building instructions on my computer. o, and again: excellent work!
The engine is ironicly the correct color for a mopar. (I know this because my dad owns a 1968 charger. He and I are restoring it right now.)
i would like to see a '68 on the pages at some point. besides goodish moc
WOW! finally you posted something! this one is really cool, great color combo with that nice classic style building... also good to see an engine in your car.. though you could make it better; try to make your engines using more than one color, like grey and blue for example... trunk!?? next time I know ;p by the way, as I told you before, feel free to add any thing you want to our group pool... you are a member my friend, and I suggest on you to add any thing right after you posted it, so more people could see your new creation... keep it up my man >>> peace.. Fofo :)
