More Koolwheelz?
« on: December 29, 2013, 02:00:21 AM »
Hi Dave.  Appreciate the work you have been doing and also all the free Koolwheelz.  Many years ago, I thought a streetable superstock-like AMC Pacer would be a Kool project  8).  Many bills and a couple of now grown kids later, I never did get to the project car, but maybe a Koolwheelz one would be in reach.  Does this inspire you?  ;D





Regards,
Your big fan John

I have driven (and worked on) my fair share of Pacers
and I can tell you without a doubt, I am NOT a fan of this car.

In fact, I pretty much hate any AMC product after the AMX.

I will agree with you that a drag car is a much better purpose for a Pacer
...following in the footsteps of Gremlins. LOL
"If you are born to be ugly, you should at least run fast!"

Sorry, John, but a Koolwheelz Pacer is definitely not in the works.
No inspiration with this one, but you did make me smile.

...
good idea for a thread though.

Somebody asked over at pm.com  about my koolwheelz to-do project list
(which I used to display on my website, but now its gone).

I didn't want to broadcast the list since plans sometimes change.
But I will post it here just for reference.
Please, don't hold me to anything on this list.

Red Baron
Bertone Stratus
DeLorean (BTF?)
FAB 1 (new version)
Chuck Miller's Fire Truck
Captain Nemo's Car
Pink Panther Mobile
Stagefright
Swoopy Doo
Bugatti Veyron
The Original Backup Pickup
(Scooby Doo) Blue Falcon
Mad Max Interceptor
Bentley GTR
Star Wars Landspeeder
GT1
Bricklin SV1

I may shoot down most suggestions for future Koolwheelz models
but every now and then, an idea comes along that really catches my
fancy...so you never know!

Okay, this would be 'whimsical', but on the other hand, it would really be one of the memorable vehicles of Sci Fi.

How about the JohnnyCab from Total Recall?

Unfortunately I don't really know it.

Yes...I did see the movie...way back, when it came out.
But I don't think I have ever seen it again
and I don't remember it.

I guess it is the wrong year jeep, so recoloring your current Koolwheelz jeep wouldn't work, but how about a Jurassic park jeep?
