So this was quite quick project to do. This took about two weeks and this is built mainly using left over parts. I found a 1/16 engine and a 1/25 body from my storage and quite soon it was obvious what I was going to do with these...

 

That monster engine needed quite a lot room so I had to cut the body and other parts quite hard. There's no firewall at all. The whole front axle is scrathbuilt. Rust is made with primer-hairspray-final color -method.

To me, it looks like a normal size engine but, a mini car.  I love it!  The rust looks cool. It's not often you see a Model A grill used on a '32 Ford, it's usually the other way around, love that too.  Nice Job!!!

A little odd looking, but very cool! I wonder what displacement that engine would be in 1/25 scale - maybe 10 liters?!

Looks amazing, I love the weathering and the 1/16 engine looks superb. Really nice work.
