    Can’t find them for $7500 bucks anymore. Nice drawing Foose!

    7500 Foose obviously doesn't know the market ;). But the drawing looks like a Toyota celica to me.

    Where I live Notch’s are hard to find and I can’t find a notch under $12k even in so-so condition. Nice drawing though.

    It does have a tinge of Celica to it, but the finished project will be undeniably a Mustang. His drawing has changed some of the lines just enough where it could take on that Celica look. I'd love to see the finished project! I think it's going to be stellar.

    The Fox body is my flavor, I own a 93 Cobra and 91 Notch. I am not a fan of his drawing as he should have used the hatch version. The notchbacks are most beautiful when they are simple, and no freaking spoiler on the trunk lid.

    Agree on the lines. The a and c pillar are shorter and more raked. It's almost half notch and half fastback.

    He drawing an R31 Skyline? Never liked Foose's style. Guy is the Ed Hardy of the tuner car world.

    I personally like the drawing. For sure custom is VERY subjective, what appeals to me won't necessarily be your thing. Which it is why it is called custom. But, from drawing to pavement a lot of things can change. That's why I say that I like the drawing.

    I was more bothered by some of the things he said than what he drew. Did nobody else feel like he was in a sort of backhanded way, talking shit about the 93 cobra? It wasn’t a Shelby, blah blah blah.

    sometimes when I listen to him, I feel like he’s not really a car guy at all, just a talented artist who applies his skills to cars.

    Chip is a super nice guy, met/saw him at a WDC.

    But his designs look dated to me on most of his cars.

    I did take the Cobra dig personally lol. And I kind of agree, he is an artist and designer, and chose the car niche. Good observation.

    I like Foose a lot. I know he can get a little wild sometimes but he also does some amazing subtle touches. Seems like a good dude too which is a plus. His old black f100 is an amazing truck

    What he said was true. Well everything except the $7500

    He picked the wrong angle to draw and is a bit out of touch with the latest in coupes done right.

    So the 'non Shelby' Cobra cars are no good in your mind?

    93 Cobra is a pedestal car for me, maybe its a result of having cut my teeth on Fox Bodies. Also have a soft spot for the 96 Cobra. You start talking smack about 03 Cobras and there might be a fight around these parts :)

    Was he even trying? Looks like a notch with a bad wing and Shelby badge.

    He’s a great artist but some of his stuff just doesn’t do it for me.
