Got to thank Ira Dahm for this one! I would never built this if not for his CAR-TOONS contest.
This started out with one of the new revell funnycar bodies and Daytona Charger kit.

Wow, that is perfect. Seeing as how the movie is kind of a live action cartoon itself... Great job.

What a awesome looking model kit, I love that crazy movie haha. You did a amazing job recreating the look and all the weathering, but the coolest thing is you stepped out of your normal building style and really really did a impressive job. I would love to see this one in person.
