got the daytona in the mail yesterday
it was partially started as a pro street it looks like so i will have to replace the interior tub and the chassis by those from a superbee
the motor will also be from a superbee (got one in the partsbox) a 440

looks like all i really need is the hood and the glass
ill have to check the partsbox for usable units later aswell as rolling stock

from the looks if it it runs steelies up front and cragar SSs in the rear

IMO the attitude is spot-on, but it's a little low on both ends. When I did my Charger, I kinda 'cheated' and sorted the car's stance on a jig after the body & chassis were assembled.

Yeah, it does seem a bit low still. Also, if you use the IMG tag from photobucket, the pics will show up larger. I believe the site will autosize them so that they aren't super huge though.

I think they stay the size you uploaded them when you first post them, but when you return to the thread they should have reduced in size, at least that's what has happened to me.

It wouldn't be Joe's car if you didn't. The center grille and fender scoop holes also need to be opened up:

And I did it on mine; the hardest part was not losing the headlight doors after cutting them out and thinning them

I've made a little progress. Made my springs and tranny cross member. Then I decided to make my own radiator and front axle. I think they turned out well.

Looking at the pic on my screen I now think I need to make my springs a little lower.

If this build thread interests you but you just don't know where to start looking for something build this is a must, MUST SEE!!!!

Intern Movie Cars Database

It has hundreds if not thousands of vehicles that have appeared in film or television, regardless of how much screen time. It's not 100-percent complete but it provides small screenshots. Just pick a brand or model, foreign or domestic and view the thumbnails. A very useful tool for the undecided.

I have two that I already built! Too bad I can't use them, because nobody has mentioned either one of them yet: The Harold & Maude '59 Cadillac Hearse (although I put Cragar S/S mag wheels on that one.) and Jim Rockford's '77 Firebird Esprit. I might consider doing the Caddy again, since my brother has been bugging me to give him the one I already built for about 5 years now!

Too bad this ended. There were some cool builds in here. That Death Proof Nova was wicked cool. Was that a kit or scratch work. I also love the Cobra Merc and the Christine.
