Phil Gorny • Novi, MI
Gone in 60 Seconds has probably motivated more people to build a fastback Mustang than any movie since Bullitt. Phil Gorny is one of the inspired ones, and procured a fairly clean fastback from eBay to build his Eleanor. Since Phil appens to have an artist's touch with fiberglass, perfectly molding the body kit to the steel was simple enough, and he added in his own touches to make his car unique, such as making all the scoops functional, flush mounting the taillights, and creating his own roll pan and exhaust tips. A good deal of the difficult work is already finished, and he's shooting for having the Mustang on the road in time for the Woodward Dream Cruise this summer.
'72 Camaro RS Scott Olsgard Marysville, CA
On the hunt for a new project, Scott Olsgard ran across this '72 Rally Sport Camaro tucked away in a barn where it had sat untouched for years. After purchasing it, Scott actually got it running and drove it to the body shop where the stripping began. Unfortunately, that barn must have leaked because nearly every panel on the car had to be replaced, even the roof. The driver-side door and fender did make it, however. The arduous bodywork is nearly finished and it should be covered in GM white with silver stripes by the time you read this.
