Not sure if I've 'improved' this cheap old James Bond 007 AMC Matador or not, but it's an interesting shape car which I hadn't heard of until recently, I really like the slightly odd shape.  The wheels seemed far too low in the original model but changing anything is made harder as the whole wheel well is turned with the wheels so had to do a fair bit of cutting and glueing.  You can't really put the wheels straight because of this.  Forgot to pus a US license plate on which it needs.

The shape is quite strange, this is the first time I see it but I like it just like you. Strange but beautiful

Carlo, you improved this model! IMO, it looks 1000% better, nice job!  I was a kid when these were new and boy did we think they were stupid looking; the public thought so too as sales were "less than stellar."

That being said, IMO, they make GREAT looking models because of their "slightly odd shape."
