The same truck pictured here: http://www.modelcars...topic=58836&hl=, only this is the rebuild.
I omitted the headlights this time, made a stake bed out of Popsicle sticks and plywood,added a spare, built the gas tank out of random junk, swapped the front & rear suspension with that of a NASCAR,swapped the wheels for NASCAR D-locks,and swapped the tires for Goodyear Rally GT big n littles that are from AMT's 53 Corvette.Attached File  IMG_5235.JPG   125.25KB   40 downloadsAttached File  IMG_5240.JPG   134.2KB   43 downloadsAttached File  IMG_5244.JPG   139.73KB   38 downloadsAttached File  IMG_5241.JPG   117.23KB   42 downloadsAttached File  IMG_5243.JPG   114.03KB   36 downloadsEnjoy

I love your concept of the cut off coupe. Very well executed. My only suggestion is that the popsicle sticks jump out and say popsicle sticks! For about a dollars worth of basswood (don't use balsa) you could make it very cool with about an hours work.
