Now this is different

I can't figure out whether I like it or not. Some shots look good and others take away from it. http://www.hotrodsandclassics.net/Temp/Chevy789.htm

I just don't know, when I first looked I thought someone had painted the BatMobile a different color, not really my type but then again I kind of like it.

Search "789" on this site. Been discussed before. Front is a 57 Chevy. Side is a 58. Rear is a 59. Interesting concept.

In my opinion the windshield throws it off. Maybe if it had a chopped gennie one it would look better. I'd also complete the retro look by installing a bench seat with tuck and roll.

As it is, it would certainly get looks and that seems to be why it was built. I five it 4 stars out of 5.

More info on this car at N2A Motors .

According to thier "Order Your 789 Now" link ...

The car is $135,000 ... PLUS the cost of the "donor" vette that you supply.
Everything / anything salvaged from the donor becomes the property of N2A motors as well.

Never cared for it myself, but I love the conversions that are styled after the '62 Vettes. Doesn't matter what I think though I'll never be able to afford either one. Heck, I can't even afford what I already have!

Well, they do seem to blend together quite nicely. It would be cool. I do see three cars blended together when I look at it but I give it two thumbs up.

It reminds me of the car that Homer Simpson designed.
