Hi all, this is my first post of models I have built so here goes.
Most of these conversions were built for fun rather than accuracy but any comments are welcome, any build details required please ask.
Hope you like them, we played with these for years, till my son discovered girls :D
Cheers, John

cool looking slot cars. That caddy must be hard to keep from fish tailing.

I like the charger, the bigger one of the two (black) :D Sorry to hear about your son, it's a fate that all men go through at one point or another in their life.

Sure did, but thats why my son always bagged this car just to stop me passing on the bends. It was ok on the straight though unless under hard throttle.

A friend of mine used to build his own chassis and put 1/32 bodies on them, they were so good they were banned from every track that he raced at! Thankyou for bringing back the memories!

Hi James, the bigger Charger is Monograms 1/32 1969 version. The smaller car is I believe an Eldon 1968, painted to resemble the car from Bullitt that I raced with my son together with a Mustang(for obvious reasons).
Cheers, John.
