Once upon a time filling a garage with Chip Foose dream cars involved either a check with lots of zeros or help from Nicolas Cage and Angelina Jolie. Now anyone with a "minimum deposit required" from their bank can park Foose's creations next to their daily driver. Yes, of course we're talking about scale models. Foose Design is currently accepting $28 checks for each of five 9-inch-long models. There's the '67 Mustang "Fastback," the '70 Monte Carlo, the '71 Chevelle, the Impression and the '06 Stallion (shown). The 1/20th scale cars have opening hoods, trunks and doors, chrome wheels shod with real rubber and are pretty close to the actual Foose visions. Note that the '36 Ford "Impression" Roadster does not come with an equally diminutive version of the Detroit Autorama's Ridler award.

Check out the rest of the available models after the jump.

      I watch every show called "Overhaulin" that I can. Foose is a master at drawing as to how his creations are to look. He is also a wizzard using the tools of the trade. He changes the sheet metal giving you the impression it should have been that way from the factory. Sometimes he makes such a small change that you have to look hard to find it. When you do, you realize the change was just right. If anyone gets bored of his work, watch "Overhaulin" and see a magician at work.

      He's done some really neat sketches of unique cars.

      Unfortunately all that he ever builds (and now sells models of) is the same old tired boring stuff.

      Don't get me wrong, they're nicely done, but the originality meter is pegged at 'zero'.

      Oh well, whatever sells, huh?

      I wouldn't call them boring. I don't like a lot of the rims on those models, however.

      Foose does quality work but I'm not a fan of his choices when it comes to wheel selection. He definitely has a thing for blinging out his creations that ruin otherwise very clean and smooth designs.
