[PICS] Yes, definitely quite intriguing.
Possibly just a teeny, teeny bit OTT, but compared with some of the dreadful, ill-proportioned one-offs and show cars we've seen modelled, it shows some real sense of style and proportion - from the front it could almost be an exaggerated early styling study for what became the 1960 Plymouth, with the tall fins and that side sweep running back from the grille over the front wheels, but with more of a 57-59 Imperial windscreen/windshield. I think the man must definitely have been influenced by Chrysler rather than Ford or GM styling (although the car did have a Cadillac engine).

It would definitely lend itself to modelling in nice, crisp resin, with lots and LOTS of photo-etch detail ready to fall off at the slightest touch. And of course there would have to be a version with the headlamps hidden (which looks a little stark, to my eyes) and one with them visible, and then we could all have a good grumble about having to buy both versions. Can't wait.

And by the way, when you take another look at that 1960 Plymouth, can we really accuse the Bobby Darin Dream Car of being OTT in the styling department?
