Believe it or not, our man Mel Francis had a hand in this project...

He did much better on his own!

Ha!
Just looked them up and You are correct!
I was going by memory, and we see where that got me.
The general shape of the framing is what got me.

Yes, I realized that after I goofed it up.
The Monte had a model with a pair of stacked head lights.
It would have been better if they had kept with the original theme and had concealed headlights.

EGADS ! !
What a NIGHTMARE !
And its not as if the Vette doesn't have bad enough blind-spots as it is!
There is enough Chrome on that thing to restore a FLEET of '59 Caddies!
Molded in fake side-pipes???
I do not care if you desecrate a Vette, but that thing is an Atrocity !
What were they trying to create? Another Stutz?
