I know it's nothing like an Impala (and the Buccaneer or even Voodoo maybe would've been a better choice) but I didn't have them to hand and I couldn't resist using this beauty :B

This is actually awesome. I was gonna make a Supernatural themed video, with Carry On Wayward Son by Kansas (Which is on LSRR now!).

So I took your guys recommendations on the duke, and here is the new result. I have to admit, the chrome does work well.

 

Original look:

It's nice but make the window tint a bit lighter it just ruins it, change that and it'll be perfect.

Pretty close there. Funnily enough I somewhat based mine off of that as well. Just didn't want to do it in purple haha.

Finally I got my dukes after a year of waiting. Now to clear up some confusion for you guys. The dukes is almost spot on a replica of a 69 charger but not 100%. The front clip which is 69 charger but it hangs down slightly. The shape of the cab is spot on all the way to the trim coming from the roof down to the trunk. But the biggest difference is the very back of the car. The trunk shape taillights and bumper are from a 69 lemans which got it its name imponte (for lemans parts) dukes (for charger). And since we usually refer to our cars by the model name as opposed to manufacturer name reflects that it much more resembles a charger than anything else. Hope this helps.

My only picture of mine was in a selfie in the dark, and I took it on my friends console. If we play it again, I'll retake the picture, but for now, this is the only picture of my car. Still pissed about the lack of chrome for rims... :/

Tinted windows make the Dukes look strange to me. I much prefer the car to have clear windows... Same goes for all classics. Clear windows just give that vintage look to me. ;o

I agree with you about the greenhouse (cab, as you call it), but if you don't seen any resemblance of the combined front bumper/grille to late '60s Ponchos such as the '68 Tempest / Le Mans / GTO, you're missing out. And while nearly every facet of the GTA world is inspired by real-life entities, nothing in GTA is "almost a spot-on replica" of anything.

Pearlescent glitched over classic paint? Lol. You do realize classic midnight purple is just metallic midnight purple with black pearlescent rather than bright purple, right? All classic paints are just the base coat with black for the pearlescent. You're wasting your time with that.

All classic paints are just the base coat with black for the pearlescent. You're wasting your time with that.nope they are not go to metallic midnight purple and put a black pearl then compare it to classic midnight purple. They are totally different colors. There are some "classic" colors that are actually "utility" midnight purple midnight blue and i forget which other one

Well here it is with that new color. Matches much better than the standard midnight purple metallic.

Wow man that looks great. But if you're going for authenticity with it may I suggest removing the spoiler. As the one in Counting Cars didn't have one. Otherwise it looks spot on.

Also believe or not counting cars did a 69' Charger a while ago. It looked mostly stock except it had this great gold paint job. I'm probably going to base my dukes of it when I get next-gen.

A stripless, gold Tampa from GTA 4 would be perfect for that gold car you mentioned, but R* refuses to add it.

 

OT: I just can't decide on paint job for this car. I love it but I just don't know how to paint it...
