Recently watched Spinout with Elvis Presley again. They use an old Duesenberg as a tow vehicle for a Shelby Cobra race car. Quite a sight.
Here is another one
I believe this the Duesenberg Town Car(?)
Anyway, this one is a little farther down the list, but it will be rebuilt
This is the kind of stuff I'm looking for in my trade post..(yes, a shameless plug )

I came in to work to find that somebody had anonymously put these on my desk. No notes or anything.
They smell like they've been in a damp shed.
The person who attempted it apparently was in over their head. They started gluing it together with no paint and massive amounts of glue. Glue bomb? More like glue nuke!
First up is the prowler. It's damaged beyond repair to make it look good, so I'm going to use it for a prop in the zombie thread and make it a crashed car.
Over all shot
Front suspension completely trashed and window frame bent.
Glue bombed interior. The shiny is the glue.
No idea what they were thinking but they destroyed a wheel.
And the engine
The impala is in the same condition sadly.

I did whip up a custom firewall from a scrap I found sealing a tin of cashews. The kit wall was pretty much non-existing and booooring.
And you gotta love personalized plates thanks to Acme plate maker. Almost all my models have em. Luv it!
Okay, that's done. NEXT! Gotta keep the momentum going.
