Just a little something I threw together to look like a weekend(/street) racer. The chassis is from the Challenger TA kit.

Thanks. The wheels are from the R/M 70 RR. The front tires are some older Monogram rubber Michelins while the rears are Monogram NASCAR tires. Hey Jim, just a question, are you in any way related to the company called Good Stuff?
Thanks again,

As Sideshow Bob once said, "Guilty as charged."

Hey, do you have any more photos of that pickup on your Avatar? Looks really cool!

Well glad to virtually meet you. I am in the same club as Tom Dillion. I am sure he would love to say hi. The avatar is modified from a drawing done by Eric Brockmeyer. We went to school together and are still in touch. He is selling prints of this one on his web site in the store section. Great guy, and if the name doesn't ring any bells, check out his website.

I can't believe that started out as a Revell 'cuda. You turned it into "jewelery"! Nice!

I like it!
The car has a sinister "stealthy" look to it.
