I Don't Care. Do you?
I sure hope so. So many great cars were lost to those recreations. Personally, I much prefer a stock restoration or unique restomod to what became a cookie-cutter, over done clone.

I think that the craze was good for those of us that prefer stock, restored, restomod and restorod Mustangs as well . I believe the demand for the Eleanor's probably helped get the all the sheetmetal parts we now take for granted. Dynacorn's first fully built shell option was a 67/68. they didn't build it for the stock folks, but rather the aftermarket builders that probably were more of the Eleanor centric builders.
I'm glad Dynacorn decided to make full 67/68 fastback quarters and roof skins. Without the Eleanors, probably would have had to wait a few extra years or more for those parts to make it to the market.

Look at you seeing the silver lining! :)
The body panels I am a huge fan of having available. The full bodies not so much but that's a whole other conversation.

The movie that inspired Eleanor is near 20 years old now. I don’t think it’s a fad. While I do not have a "clone” I do love the style.
It always seems funny to me that only Mustang people complain about Eleanor but not Bullitt clones or other movie car clones like the Bandit TA, Starsky Torino and let’s not forget the billions of General Lee Chargers. Mustang people are as bad as Corvette and Mopar people!!!

Glad to hear your business is still doing well, you make great stuff. I always tell people I meet that are doing a mustang about your stuff.
