Gonna try for a quick build here. Inspired by Barry Price's brilliant multi-engined creations. i jammed together two AMT Garlits Wynns Chargers. Gonna be injected rather than blown. Tyres are from AMT's Street Freak Mustang. Gave them a good sanding down in the power drill. Sidewall profile a lot more realistic plus a smidgen of crown on the tyre.

Scratchbuilt the injector intakes. Just in the process of forming the throttle linkages. Not gonna go too heavy on the detail, wanna make this a quick one.

Made the chop here!

Got plans for this front end which may include the Corvair engine from AMT's Parts Pack!

I tell ya, fer bein on the "wrong" side of the pond, you sure got your act together when it comes to American Hot Rods! If you din't write your locale in your avitar, I'da never known you weren't from here. Ya coulda fooled ME, Kidd-O, :unsure: :blink:
