    Ok, I'm a little 'car stupid' here. I've been working on an abridged write-up for this G1 Skids KO but am unsure what he's been reshelled into. Bitchin Camaro, perhaps?

    No, really... it's G1 Skids:

    Looks like a Dodge Daytona (late 80s, early 90s vehicle)

    I was thinking, "That can't be Skids." :D

    Hmmm...not really sure. The front end does remind me of an '84 Mustang, though Sy-Rein is probably correct.

    That doesn't even remotely look like Skids (sure there's a few things, but it also looks like Smokescreen, Jazz, and just about any other G1 car)

    As for the model... I don't know.

    I had an early 80's Mustang when I was younger and it looked a lot like that car.

    Looks like a mid 80's Daytona.

    Yeah, I can kinda see your point. The similarities are obvious to me, though. Plus, I know it's difficult to tell in that picture but he does have Skids head:

    The write up and remaining pictures are here if anyone's interested:

    The transformation looks to be the same as Skids'.

    The amount of work put into replicating, then nearly entirely changing the resemblance to Skids is baffling! They rarely even try that hard these days, heh.

    Hmm, could be. I mean, knock offs of knock offs have happened before. Still, I think it's more likely that this is that car (or some variation thereof) rather than a bootleg of it.

    Thanks for the link!

    I think so too :)  Twokingmick (of these boards) offered to pick them up for people a while back. What a great find!

    Definitely a Dodge Daytona or Plymouth Sundance (same car design just different names).
