Other than the hood colour and the scoop, it looks good to me.

Not my style for aesthetics, though would look better to me with a simple flat black hood.

Looks like he put some thought into making it work, though.

Hood kinda looks like a black and white Mod Top if you squint your eyes. I kinda like it.

Did anyone see the remains of his first Dart? eek

On this Dart, the only thing I don't like is placement of the exhaust outlets, right under the door? no

Big thumbs from me leaving it a '67 Dart. How many times have we seen cars where they swapped grills and tail lights over to the '68 or '69?

Looks fine to me. If you're going to take it that far engine wise might as well build the rest of the car to handle it and work properly.

Most kids Jared's age, are NOT doing anything with a car any older
than 1999, or any car at all... let alone 1967....he obviously has had influence from his father (which is a good thing up). I give the kid a alot of credit for sticking with it, especially since his previous Dart was totaled.
We need more like him in this hobby, if it is to continue on into the
future. I like the car...he has done a nice job with it! twocents

What makes it a "tuner"? Because usually when I hear that term they refer to a 90's Japanese/Eupoean car? This looks more pro-stock. Otherwise, it's a little too busy for me, but still cool.

I think it looks good, like said above it is good to see some of the younger generation get involved with the old cars.

Not a fan of the camo, but I am not a fan of pro-street cars in general. Remarkably impractical for any occasion where it needs to be driven past a 1/4 of a mile.


...though I found this quite confusing.

Dash broad?

How would you see where you're going with a broad on your dash?

I'm not fond of the hood graphics, but I think it's a cool car. If you look at the full size picture you can see the Mickey Thompson lettering on the sidewalls. It appears to have been ground down, the "Toyo Tires" are add on lettering, even in the front. The only FAIL is the exhaust exiting under the doors panic and that is easily fixed. twocents
