    So I've recently had some Pontiac fever so I thought I'd make something simple. This car uses the same body as the first gen Camaro, so it's a familiar body style to me.

    I prefer the Pontiac version since it's a bit more stylish.

    I can finish the model, but it'll likely never see the in game universe unless some kind jbeamer would like to work with it. Essentially the only reason I still model for beam.ng, I can give the models for free.

    You didn't start anything except the 3D model? If so, you're breaking the rules:

    You shouldn't make a WIP thread if you didn't start anything except your 3D model

    I didn't just start, I've been working on the body shell for well over a week. I know what I am doing. Check my other threads for proof.

    Right on! I also like that you're making the exact same gen as I am making.

    It's been a while, but I've been using that time wisely. I not only cut the panels but made the outer shell of the body using the F-body GM platform as reference., reproduction parts and restoration photos.

    I'll be modeling a carpet over the interior metal so I made a few renders before then so it would look like a bare shell.

    Never been a fan of drag racing, all they do is go in straight lines.

    Still, removable carpet would be cool, a lot of car owners love bare metal. Also this could be used for track/skid/drift/any other racing configurations
