hey guys

here is the introduction to my newest WIP
its some sort of rod though im not sure on the exact term, street or rad rod or something (not really my cup of tea but why not)

the whole idea came to life when i picked up the main body in europe for 9,95 euros (a revell of germany kit)
its a great car but slightly boring OOB and ive been wating for a way to harvest the driveline out of it for a muscle car

well, it finally came to me, ill make it into a rod of some sort

after scowering through the partskit i found a 32 ford frame that i will need to Z to make the body sit right but it had both axles so it will do the trick


i havent figured out rolling stock yet but im thinking this might be a good chance to unload some of those hideous centerlines they put in every muscle car kit

(if only i had some wide white walls for the rear)


since this project wont have a hood on it (though i will build a grille for it) it will be perfect for the 392 firedome i build ages ago that come in the modified stockers ford truck

heres a shot of the firepower :rolleyes:

Really not my cup of tea, but to keep with the late-model Mopar theme, maybe you can put a Plymouth Prowler grille to finish out the front.

that thought has crossed my mind too, maybe not the entire grill but definatly the fenders

i started this build mainly so i could free up the driveline from the viper and this looked like a good idea
