OT: What were you doing with YOUR Kelmark? Good for a laugh!

It seems to me (maybe I'm wrong?) but it seems you guys hate mongrels. Don't know what else to call this, I LOVE it! Wish I had this guy's talent, or testicular fortitude to start cutting, and see it this far through!

I like it.
Needs some fine tuning, but overall, is a great foundation.
The only time I dislike a "Rebody" is when it is a classic car that has real value, or when someone is switching tags.
As for doing something like this to a Honda?
There were so many of them made, hacking half a million of them will never be noticed in the grand scheme of things.

Wait a minute, Mel, is that a direct quote from Ted Trevor?

Yes, back in the day, I am sure that no one ever thought the Corvair would ever be a classic, let alone collectible.
BUT, even IF the Honda ever becomes a collectable classic, there will still be more them than we ever want to see.
Disposable cars with chintzy plastic interiors that break after just a few years are not something I would want to go to car shows and look at.
I know that some younger kids would disagree, but there is a reason our cars are still around after more than fifty years!

In truth, it's impossible to predict what is going to be a future collectable gold mine. Sure, some things are obviously destined to be collectible. Yet others aren't.

Take for instance, the old '73-'90 Chevy C-K trucks, what is now being called the square body trucks. They made so many of them and over so many years (the longest running body design ever for a pickup truck), yet they are white-hot on the collectible market right now. So numbers means nothing.

Other factors are also subject to exceptions. So never say never.

The concept looks well thought out. The fiberglass work needs improvement, but who am I to judge? I have zero bodywork skills.
