This one could go almost anywhere, LMS as he won Saugus track championship several times, Darkside as he raced at Riverside twice in this car, finishing 24th & 35th? in 71 and 72, and Greyside as he raced it up till 74. Cut the top off and raced as a convertible, and raced on dirt, too. An amazing story about a driver who was paralyzed from the knees down!
Revell kit, short trailing arm chassis, nearly stock, scratch cage, and my decals. Enjoy

Slim - WOW There's a Driver whose Vehicle I would have never thought being built in Plastic. Tru was my Neighbor for a few years before my Family moved to Northern Calif in '67. He was Driving a Red '50 or '51 Chevy back then and considering going to Sportsmans Class from Novice.
About a Month ago I had looked Tru up on Google. It was good to see he had done so well.
You Build looks Very nice.
