Re: 1985 GT Pro Performer

Good eye. smile It's a spare door for my '70 Dart. This was an entry for the Porkchops Summer Build and the theme is summer fun. I saw the black grille and the green door, and thought it was perfect for the green and black GT! Just messin' around.

Re: 1985 GT Pro Performer

Great composition in the first pic!!! The car door against all that green creates an optical illusion. The eyes see the door so the brain thinks the rest of the car is there, but it's not. Pretty trippy! big_smile


I ride my bike in the house.

Re: 1985 GT Pro Performer

The rest of the car is there! Well, it's in the garage, not on the patio tongue

I will clean all the dirt off the frame and clean it all up a little soon, but I wanted it to have all the original dirt for awhile. The sticker remnants will remain though. In case it's not visible, the seat tube sticker is "RAD". I like the original rough paint on this one.

Well, yours is still BY FAR the nicest one! Mine has rust, decimated decals, and lots of chips & scratches. Which I like on mine, but it's no comparison to yours.

The car door is there so he can roll down the window if it gets to hot.

Yeah, exactly! It's already starting to cool down here as we approach fall too quickly, so I may have to roll that window back up and turn on the heat!
