Just finished the Model King Challenger funny car.
(Raced by the Beebe Brothers in 1970, Dave Beebe driver)
Made some modifications to the interior tin, the chassis and front end.
Used the great Slixx decals and Boyd's paints.

Thanks guys for the nice words.

Wayne, you are one of my inspirations to do my best on my funny cars.

Dave, 1st priority to my funny cars is......."they gotta sit right".

Very nice! I love funny cars from that era...they still looked like real cars. Today's funny cars are like today's NASCAR racers...except for the decals they all look alike!
