A Modder's Dream - A True Story

So, two (2) nights ago I had this dream about modifying the Shoebox casting...why, because in theory it is a great candidate for modification...long wheel base, nice stance and plenty of space for weight in the rear of the car. The trick is I haven't thought about this casting in my time awake in...forever, as I don't really even like it, but it is a very solid candidate.

Now this is where it gets trippy...in my dream I was going to use the Ford Shelby GR-1 as my donor car for the FTE package

So, I dig out the Shoebox which has been buried in a case of cars for over a year and I grab one of my Shelby's...so, I'm standing there saying, " no way "...and yes, the axel length and wheels are a dead match...freaked out in a fun way, but freaked out nonetheless. So, I will of course modify the car since the Universe apparently wants me to and I will call it "Dreamweaver"...due to possible trip to the Astral Plane...only explanation I've got???

Nice work L0$, waiting to see where you go with this build. I had one of these castings as well. Purple with wide white walls but my daughter found a way to charm it out of me.
