Hmmm, yeah: converting an ugly F50 into a
fully detailed Ferrari 333SP would be fun. Lot of work though...

Holy moly! That looks really like a challenge to do, but...
My dream conversion is converting the '90s S-Class Mercedes into an armoured reconaissance vehicle with turret etc. no chains though.

Title would be: "Schnellsten Pantzer oder Schwerste Mercedes?"

Translated: "Fastest Armour or Heaviest Mercedes?"



I'm still looking for an armour kit to make the idea happen...

Talking Two ideas...

First would be a Dodge Garter. Starting with a Viper, I'd cut half the engine away, making it a Slant 5. I'd remove the console, make the front seat a bench seat, and use a column shifter (still manual). The bumpers would be dark grey, pebble-grained to look like it is molded. Steel wheels, probably from a Tamiya BMW Z3. Paint would be beige or white.

Second would be a fully-weathered Corvette, with great big rust holes in the fenders

Wide-body Nissan S13 Silvia with an S15 front end, GT-Wing, intercooler, stripped interior, and the Skyline's RB26DETT engine shoved under the hood. that's the stuff dreams are made of.

Check the sig. This conversion, though, will more than likely be actually happening.
