Here are some cars and links worth emulating
Craig Hooper's Beauty - flares, Pana's, & stripes - hunkered down and mean!
Rallye Streetbar for reference on construction
More flares on Gary Boone's autocrosser.
Some Photoshop bodywork - investigating the appearance of a rounded tail
And of course, Gordon's gem
Too many other great cars to list ( don't want anyone to feel slighted) - just some examples of what I'm planning on......
