Okay. The kit I have was painted in testors lacquer by its previous owner. A $2.99 bottle of 91% alcohol later and that paint is toast. The build begins this weekend. This is going to be a stake-side flatbed dually shop truck. The engine will be the Ardun flattie from the 50 Ford F-1. Paint will be a mildly distressed suede blue. I'm kicking around the idea of chopping the top a bit. I'm not a big fan of chop tops, but we'll see.

ACK! Seeing you guys getting started is driving me crazy, I can't find my Mustang yet, might not get started on it for another month or so...

Hey Jim, I can get started on the Jag and the Stingray if you are willing to add them to my build entries. B)

The way I set out the rules, you had to give others at least 2 weeks to jump on a song before you entered a second build. I haven't checked, but I'm pretty sure just offhand that it's been at lewast 2 weeks. Consider yourself down for the XK-E (actually, Jaguar called the car an "E-Type" - I'm a stickler for that sort of thing!) and the Stingray (with SIX taillights!) from Jan & Dean's "Dead Man's Curve".

Congratulations, Darrin! All the best to you and your bride. (My invitation must have gotten lost in the mail... :) )

Rob, I am glad you were able to get that paint off. Where did you get the alcohol from?

finally got some bench time this weekend

i managed to chop out the door and i started building the interior parts
this was the first time doing something like this so i was a little sketchy about it but so far it seems allright
(i still need to fab part of the engine bay so the fender doesnt just hang there)

i also removed the from wheel and installed the discbrake which is now read for detailing
(thank again Matthew)

Well I got a little engine work done on the Mustang, mocked up with wheels and tires. I think it is as low as I can go without dragging the oil pan. I thought it needed a little more of a modern look that the factory car in the video. Tomorrow I will dig out the Jag and the Vette and see what I have there.

Guys, I'm seeing some great progress on these models so far! That Monte looks like it's gonna be a real mess, Eelco, but then, that's the whole idea of a "Rusty Chevrolet", right? Sam, your Mustang convertible's stance is fantastic! Earl, your Mustang coupe is super so far - Sally will be thrilled with it! And I'm not forgetting about Bob's Caddy and Nico's Merc that haver been up here for a couple of weeks already. Great stuff all around, guys!

Now I have to finish up my three other CBP entries (a 1960 Corvair 700 sedan "Glue Bomb" restoration for the Early Compact CBP and both a '66 Yenko Stinger and a Corvair Gasser for theVintage Competition CBP) and get crackin' on my "Brand New, Shiny, Red, Super Stock Dodge" - There's a little old lady out there in Pasadena who's getting impatient! I have a set of 1964 California plates all set to go on the Lindberg Dodge 330 I have for the project, but I'm thinking of getting a set of "GRANNY" Vanity Plates made up for it!

Work has begun on the flatbed Ford. Not much to show yet. It's a very old kit. Lots of flash and injector pin marks. Aside from an engine swap it's going to be mostly kit supplied parts. I have decided on a 1/8 inch chop to the top.

Sorry about the slow progress Jim, I just can't find a Toyota body that looke enough like the one in the Hillbilly vid, I'll have to jump on it soon or'll I'll go balls out and scratch build a body. In the words of jeremy Clarkson "How hard can it be?"

It doesn't have to be the truck from the VIDEO, just the truck from the SONG. The song you picked was vague enough that you don't have to build your model based directly on a Toyota body. I think you nailed the style of truck the song had in mind (that's why they used it in the video, after all), but I don't see why you can't base your build on some other body. I like the idea of a big engine/big lift/big tires under a compact pickup, but why not think about an AMT Chevy S10 instead of the Toyota? They're easy to find - I have a couple of them in my workroom and I'm not even that much into pickups!

I've got to agree with Jim 100%, just because they used a Toyota in the video doesn't mean that only a Toyota is a "Hillbilly Deluxe". I'm a born and bred West Virginia hillbilly, and my slightly customized 1990 Ford F350 4x4 dually is my "Hillbilly Deluxe", even with it's rusted front fender and hillbilly rust repair, DUCT TAPE! ;) B) Really though, back to the serious side, up here in the states (since I noticed you're from the land down under Aaron) I've seen all different types of trucks that have "Hillbilly Deluxe" on the bug shield or back window or across the top of the windshield, I've even seen some big rigs named "Hillbilly Deluxe"!

Also, I don't know how I missed this CBP before, but I like it! I don't have a definite entry as of yet, mainly because I have tons of others that probably won't get finished for other CBPs :lol: , but I just might have come up with something for this one, maybe even go through some of my old trucking songs and get a big rig in the mix! :lol:
