There's already a contessa - mustang conversion in Delhi.
I remember seeing the pics at the rally forum and suggested him a crate V8 engine.

badboyscad -- wish I could edit/alter/draw like you're doing -- good job!!

I've wondered about the Conti myself. One thing about the conti is that unlike many muscle cars, it has a "weak" tail -- it's trunk area (in profile) is smaller and lower than the front... It needs to be given some rake to balance it out...

What would a matt black and dark gloss red (almost wine red) combo look like. I'm imagining the front lowered quite a bit, the rear filled out with bigger wheels with the red going across at an angle from about a third of the way back on the bottom edge of the front door to the top of the C-pillar -- all areas behind this would be in red and in front in matt black with black out trim all round. Fogs and spoiler in front, spoiler at rear (not obtrusive).
