    Wondering what you can do with the '62 Dart:

    https://www.google.com/search?q=196...WRhbLVAhXl6YMKHXsNCNUQsAQIJQ&biw=1324&bih=622

    In front, I'd like to see the headlights together and horizontal, outside of the grille, where the outer ones are. This will probably involve reshaping the grille, and also moving the turn signal lenses, maybe under the headlights or inside the bumper. In back, the tail lights could also be horizontal, but maybe vertical, like on the station wagon. Or change them completely. And on the sides, the fins could be removed from the front and rear quarters, and the lines that make it look like a Lancer changed. If you have any ideas, feel free to add them; a '62 Dart with a 413 Max Wedge or cross-ram shouldn't have to look like it currently does.

    Oh no, that's a seriously ugly car. I'll try to come up with something.

    Agreed, the '62 Dart wasn't thought out very well, as orders from the top to downsize it came about a year into the design phase, which drastically reduced the time they had.

    Those side fins on front were the tops of the quarter panels, a few inches below the hood. They may have been trying a throwback to when the fenders were lower around the wheels, but combining retro with modern doesn't always work (the effect also seems wrong on the Airflow, which was still in the fender era). I think that keeping the quarter panel at approximately the height of the hood all the way over the wheels would work better. A small ridge maybe 2 inches from the hood came from the front window almost to the grille, but this would be better placed at the outer edge of the quarter panel. Something similar could be done in back; the bulge around the lower tail light into the fender detracts, and the rounded bulge above the upper tail light doesn't match the more pointed ridge up front. This may make the front and rear ends slightly wider than the passenger compartment, but it should improve how the car looks.

    Was playing around with a this Renegade a few days ago and got a little carried away on the grille... decided to do the opposite of the Wrangler JL - instead of curving inward at the top, it curves outward at the bottom.

    Looks angry.:eek: I like how you made the grill "face" more keystone shaped.

    Give it Grand Cherokee styled headlights and you have a winner. :)
