    there is a lincolc ooor mercury concept a few years back that looked just like this..only the front was flat not pointed like yours is. I forget its name, i think it was like mailman or something. But anyway, good idea and design i like it. I think if you took that concept car and chopped it a bit, you could make your wildcat real classy looking, basically the same appeal the 300c had. Nice idea.

    Wow, it really does look like the Lincoln concepts, but i was inspired by this '67 Wildcat: (even if it looks more like the Lincolns than the Wildcat)

    yeah it does. I've never seen a wildcat like that picture before, but i like it alot..definitely shows in your drawing thats what it was based off of, which is a god thing haha. I was just saying, for a modern car, if you were to take that top lincoln concept, and bend it to fit the mold and lines of your drawing/that wildcat picture, it'd be a really nice car and modern interpretation of the '67 Wildcat.
