Woo! first post! I've actually been snooping round here a while checking out some of the amazing work on here.
I build/supply/race 1/12 oval cars here in the UK, these are generally more function than form, shapeless blobs of bodywork designed to handle rather than look scale.
There is a Lotus/Caterham 7 body that fits onto a shorter than normal wheelbase chassis, again not very detailed but it does the job...
Here's one I've built with a couple of goodies added. the side exhaust is an IKEA pen with plastic tubing pipes, the headlights are from a Tamiya Hornet and the grille is a plastic cross stitch backing.
The windscreen is still a work in progress and will eventually be made in Aluminium gringrin

That's the first time I've seen one of those modeled. Great job on that. I'd rather see something like what you've built than the shapeless blobs you mentioned. I love it.
