This is a new project that I am working on. Not sure of the manufacturer but it is a simple kit. I built it first as the World's Most Expensive Lowrider. However I grew tired of looking at it and decide it had to go. After reading GrandpaMcGruck country club hot rod I though that he may need some company and the next club golf tournament. Thanks for the inspiration GrandpaMcGruck!

Here it is when it started

I'm sure a 1:1 will be sold at Barrett-Jackson next year.

Looks great.

Nice look going there. Why didn't you strip the paint off first?

The chop is perfect for this car. Are you keeping it a four door or are you going to make it a 2 door?

I just picked up one of these at the last show for $5 and was wondering what I was going to do with it. You solved that! Way to go bringing a bit of style AND bling into the rod & custom world. A diamond shifter and dash knobs would fit right in. Maybe even in the center of the wheel (and wheels) as well. Not too big, just a little bling. And how about a diamond dot instead of blue dot taillights?

Now that is thinking outside of the circle. This is going to be very interesting.

Sorry about that I even checked the spelling before I posted.

Thank you for all of the nice comments. I am think that I need to pie cut the deck lid to make it a little more stream line. What do you all of you think? Tonight I hope to turn the hood from a two piece to a single piece and a few other things. Does anyone know what it a good fat/wide white wall tire. I do not want to rod my only good set from my Revell 49 Merc.

Thanks again.

Looks great I always like to see builds where they actually make expensive cars look sweet.
