Default Let's all take a moment to appreciate this.

Found these on a google P1800 search. It's perfffect. Yes, I know it's a mockup, but part of me wants to do a P1800 like this.

These shoops have been around for a while. But it is still a beautiful design.

My memory says someone started to build this, there were issues with the b/c pillar area. But the rest was coming along.

I remember that as well. One problem is that this rendering is really just 'inspired by' an 1800, it's not an actual 1800 design with specific modifications. So to make the finished product look pretty close, you have to modify a LOT of sheetmetal.

Or just do something from scratch. Or make a half-assed attempt.

All the Russians need is some cardboard and expanding foam...

I think its ugly tbh. Don't like how they tried to modernize certain aspects, and the wheels are way to big.
