    Looks great. Seems like the tires need to be upsized; it looks like a lowrider ;)

    Upsized the wheels, rescaled the whole car to be more accurate to irl, and stared wiring, also I started working on a custom frame model.

    How do you determine its crash robustness? Will it be period-correct (no crumple zones, weak mid-section)? I guess Burnside is the closest proxy.

    Wow, it already looks amazing! The lack of good 50's cars mods is kind of upsetting, but I have high hopes for this one!

    Hello! Apparently you are new here, so I'm here to ask you not to bump old threads like this, it can be very confusing for some peoples.
    How to avoid bumping? Easy, just simply don't reply to threads that have a big red box near the posting guideline, then everything will be fine.
    Hope you have a good day, and a good thime on this forum! :D
