What if you had the power to “Frankenstein” cars?
You know, get bits and pieces from each car and put them together however you wanted to? I’ve seen it done a few times at West Coast Customs where they get the frame of a new car and attach it to the body of an old car. They’ve also converted an S550 Mercedes from a 4 door to a 2 door.
If I had the time and resources, the first car I would work on would be the Dodge Viper.
Why? Probably because I hate the front end of that car. It’s got a great engine, mean looks and massive potential, but the nose of the car just kills me.
Since we don’t have a multi-million dollar shop, we have to stick with what we know: Photoshop.
We looked around at a ton of different photos to see what would work with a good Viper image. We definitely wanted a black car, 22″ wheels with some sort of pinstripe and a new front end (probably from either a Dodge Charger or a Dodge Challenger to keep it in the same family).
Here’s the car we started out with:
Here’s the car with 24″ staggered wheels and a new front end:
Does the new design make you want to spend your next 12 paychecks on a downpayment? Or do you think we should stop messing with car designs?
Are we just being straight up blasphemous?
