As a former 72 Satellite owner I agree-it’s buttugly!
Musta been a D student in high school art class.
My dog, cat, wife, and kid hate it too.

Those pictures look like they were taken at Carlisle. I don't think it looks bad, I like how they tried keeping the original style body lines as close as possible to factory. I like it, EXCEPT for the way the hood opens up and the interior.

Stuck in the past, just North of Montana....
It's the year 2022. Everybody doesn't like concourse restorations. Everybody doesn't like restomods. Everybody doesn't like custom. I think he hit it with some of it, maybe not all. But at least he did what he wanted. Looks like he tried to make it a 2010 - 2022 model to me. I like most of it. But hey, I had a 2010 Challenger and loved that.
Remember, his car blah, blah, blah. Maybe the next guy that has seen this will do something that you guys like.......probably not though.

I don't mind different but that 71 is seriously homely. Reminds me of some kit cars gone wrong. Agree...just because you can doesn't mean you should.

George Barris would be proud though.

I'm sure it's a lot uglier in person! I can see the changes I'd make to improve it, start with a car cover!

I don’t know if it’s camera angle, I really don’t think it is, but this part seems out of line

Then there's this mess. The top of the heap in musclecar styling IMO.
