Default chop and drop

I think I've been watching too many of those Discovery shows about custom cars, but this is what I came up with one night after some playing with Photoshop. It'* about a 6" chop from the roof pillars and a 3" suspension drop. Not very feasible, but I really liked the way that it changed the lines of the car.

You need giant "fins" on the back too........at least 6" high. May I recommend a chop to the roof to make it a convertible? I could see four fender skrits, lowered 3", and a removable hard top. If your going to dream, do it big, lol. Also, may I suggest a gas tank door, I noticed the new design must be solar powered now. I really like the thought of a major mod, mabye one day..........
