I used a resin body to build this Grumpy's Toy '72 Vega. He is one of my favorites. There are more pics and details at the link. http://homepage.mac...._vega_page.html

Wow, that looks nice. I have an original one someone opened up the rear wheelwells on. Yours looks way better. Great job.

Actually Mike that's the way that kit came, unless yours is really hogged out. I'll never understand why they did that. Anyway nice build of one of my favorite Pro Stocks. It's the car that started the tube chassis revolution.
