    i know they are completely different cars but for some reason the vehicle mode makes me think of G1 Overdrive. my favorite omnibot.

    I agree with everyone above, When I first saw it, I instantly thought of one of the Omnibots. Looks great so far!

    That's a really nice job, especially for a first reshell.

    My first instinct on looking at the alt mode is Classics Oil Slick. Maybe you could do him up in the old General Lee colours? If you wanted to ape the head as well, something like Cybertron Cannonball could work.

    Sticking with GTO history, two possible names are The Judge, or Tigertracks (tigers tail sticking out under the car)(No reason he has to be a TT needs to be a repaint of Sunstreaker)

    As a Pontiac fan for many years of both the Trans Am and the GTO..why not something that fits more with the shell instead of a usual TF name.. say... Red Chief or Red Arrow? something like those. Love what you've done using everyday models. Excellent!! :thumb  :thumb
