    So ive been beating this idea aroud in my skull for awhile and ive never seen it done before or whether it even can be done. I know that there will be a ton of fabrication involved but im thinkin the reward at the end may be very unique and different which is what im shooting for for this car. Any thoughts on the matter will be appreciated.

    I thought about it being too wide and i was hoping i could somehow trim down some of the grill and tailpanel. The more i look at it the more i feel as tho it could be done. It would be awesome to see that. Ive always loved those grills and tailights.. Just cant afford an actual 70 cuda yet lol

    And all this time and money you spend on this idea will put you farther away from getting one.

    Those LED bars on the newest Chargers are the coolest, they look like neon signs.
