Ok this will take a while because I have lots of pix of the build up to post on this ride.
it started as a street car i built a few years ago, i decided to convert it because of the slope of the c piller,
This is not a complete racing package, I left the interior stock , because A) I ran out of roll cage assemblys and B) no body sees the interior while sitting on a shelf. I did painstakinly try to make the body look right and those numbers were hand painted from a masking tape template i made, spoilers, tailight and headlight covers are made from recycled aluminum can. hope you enjoy these pictures
Happy Holidays

I'll give you credit for hand painting them......It's what I had to do on my original kit when the kit decals were defective. But next time try these.......

Very nice work Clyde ! The white car is often overlooked since most people only know about the red STP Dodge . Nice to see it again !

Nice job. I wouldn't even attempt to hand paint stuff like that. I admire your steadiness.

Wow, that's very nicely done Charger! I like the paint job. Those handpainted graphics.... WOW! I bet that I would have caused a big mess if I were trying to paint them, you sure have steady hands! Nice looking build overall.

Nice Dodge you got there, I noticed you're from Wilson, I grew up going to the old dirt track there and loved it! Me and my brother built a car and ran at the track in Kenly a couple times when we weren't racing at ECMS. Do you attend any of the local tracks?

sometimes the kenly track was closed for a while and has recently reopened , the old wilson fairgrounds track is long gone, they still dirt track race in elm city at county line , i used to race go carts there
