Hah, I reckon those look great!

Although obviously using a lot of american styling cues which may upset some of the purists, I think on the whole, the cars look pretty cool.

I've always been iffy about that Corona, though more recent pictures I've seen of it look better.

I'm not diggin the Carol though. I'd have rather had the stock body entirely and worked within it's parameters to make something wicked.

Here are more images of the Carol hot rod: http://carscoop.blogspot.com/2008/01/ma ... nnabe.html
It has several more images including interior and engine views. And I agree it looks better without the hood.

On one hand I think it´s good to see a car saved from the crusher, but on the other hand I´m a little bit of a stock-guy so I don´t like most of the modifications... :?

That car exactly (I've seen these pictures many moons ago, lol, the incredible camber in back stayed in my memory, haha). Only thing I'd change on that Carol is to lose the rear spoiler. Otherwise, sex.
