Dream to Drive, Drive to Dream ™
My name is David Petty, I own the 97 Pontiac Firebird that we affectionately call the F-wing. The idea was conceived through inspiration of the Z-wing owned by Shawn Crosby in California. I have modified and decorated the car throughout the interior and exterior fashioning it after the Star Wars Episode 7 "The Force Awakens" X-Wing that has been briefly seen in the trailer and in promo shots. There are several gizmos that light up and move such as the r2-dome that was fashioned after R2-KT -a droid that was built in honor of a child that died of cancer. I recommend that you Google the droid if you have a chance.
The car is littered with scratch built "greeblies", a technique used in movie making. The wheels are polished aluminum pizza pans and the "blasters" and "thrusters" were made using a mixture of PVC, plumbing and sprinkler system parts.
Lastly I would like to thank Shawn Crosby and Zac Freer. Shawn showed me the way while Zac not only helped me paint the car initially but also showed me different painting techniques to utilize as well as helping me with the droid move. The decals were created and applied by Metro Blue Line in Bedford Texas.
