Nasty Hornet



An idea that's been bugging me for almost two years...

I had this idea for a double-nasty, throw-down AMC quite some time back, and on a long night recently, I started playing with the concept (after watching "The Man With the Golden Gun" in the Studio at 2:30 AM)... and this is what it all spawned:

A road-race AMC Hornet! I'm thinking tube chassis, independent rear suspension (with a Ford 9-inch center section), full 'cage, and why the hell not, a twin-turbo 360 and a six-speed?

The body gets a mild shave, a flush-fit windshield and backlight, molded drip rails, a narrowed, tucked, molded and drilled front bumper (with AMX-inspired lighting), a chin spoiler and splitters... and the center section of a new Challenger hood, just because.

The factory grille bar is painted, and the stock parking light holes now serve as ducts to feed the turbos. I threw it all down on a set of Konig wheels to add some tuner feel (after all, that's what we're going after here), and doused the monster in bright yellow and black, with a cleaned-up version of the factory side stripes.

A little out-there, but fun... Hope you dig it.
