Hey Harry!!!
I think I have this one nailed down.It is either real or a model!!!!

I voted model because of the back of the brakes.
I am probably wrong but this is fun to see all the guesswork!!

ok, my first one and i say real. reason; super detail. chromed allen head bolts holding the backing plate on. lug nuts and studs. holes in the header flange. this would be an awesome scale '32 ford but, wait. the firewall is homemade (flushed to the body). probably did not have a firewall or wanted more footroom. the radiator support rod brackets are missing and the rods are simply welded to the firewall and then the welds primered over. common solution. my reasoning is that if this was a super detailed model, the rods would have had more thought put into them. nice ride.

I say model because of the wheels and the number on the side, those details seem like a model.

Jeff, haven't thought about the wheel wheights! <_<

I say model because of cheezy engine detail particularly fuel lines and rad. hoses. It all seems very model-ish to me! :lol: The builder must be a Dan Gurney fan with those #48s on the door! <_<

I say model. The surface the car is sitting on doesn't look like real asphalt. <_<

For the past 3 in a row it was the real thing. This time, it has to be a model.

I avoided the last ROM because I was afraid I'd give too much away.

This one has to be a model, I say.

I know I've seen this one before, but for the life of me I don't remember the correct answer, so I'm going with my gut and saying "real"!

Those lug nuts look way to shallow to be real to me. Those appear to be some of the thinnest lug nuts I have ever seen on a car, IF this is real. From the photo, it looks like there's hardley any "thread area" to the nuts, and not much "side depth" at all for a socket or lug wrench to "bite" into. Also the studs appear to be exactly the same brassy gold tone as the nuts. Sure looks to me like more brass micro hardware that's been utilized here.


Now that's the way to play this game! You're exactly right.

It's ironic that the one detail that probably convinced a lot of you that this was a real car is the same detail that gives it away as a model. Would brass ever be used for studs and lug nuts on a real car???

Close vote, though. A lot of you were fooled, but it's a model!
Next ROM MONDAY!
