Quick update. 4.5 inch chop in the works. Third photo shows a real good reason to have the top off. Those are some wicked ejection pin marks.

I was looking through YouTube trying to figure out who actually sang "The Ride" for the Earnhardt tribute and still not sure, even though I found a couple Tim McGraw videos of the regular version. Anyway, I found this good video of the Earnhardt version, and since Friday would have been his birthday, a little tribute to the legend.

it sounds like to me it might be a guy named "Tim Wilson"!

im pretty sure if i were to buy my son a nascar he could run circles around jeff gordon...and hes only 14...months :lol:
no, i was thinking jimmy johnson
he is carving out quite a legacy and may still have many good years ahead if him (but right now, its a toss up between the two)

and yes, richard petty tops the list (and not just cos he drove a mopar :lol: )




(i was temted to throw in dick trickle just because of the awesomeness of his name but decided not to mention him)

Hey guys update from me.

I finally got a kit, It's an 86 ford bronco by the looks of it. I'll be raised up on 2009 Lego Technic wheels and tyres with a crazy modification to the suspension and more ideas will come soon.

Kevin: You're in with the hearse... I gotta agree with Rob: That was one SERIOUSLY funny video! I built a similar model about 5 years ago because my younger brother is into hearses. Either version of the "Ecto 1" (AMT or Polar Lights) would be a great starting point. I found the P.L. to be kind of crude because 1) it's a curbside and 2), the grille detail isn't as good as I'd want for a show-quality build. Check out this photo of a 1:1 '59 Caddy Hearse, taken from the filming of the movie "Harold & Maude" This is the car I based my model on:

I woluldn't be surprised if it was this car that the animators of the video used as well. This is how my model turned out. I call her "Elvira":

Thanks for the props, Kevin! I just had to play with the ride height a little and slap on those Cragars, just to be different. I've never been one to leave well enough alone! I'm still thinking about making up a set of the world's longest Lakes Pipes for it... B)

Id like to give this a try but does the build have to be 1:25 or 1:24 scale? For the song I was thinking about my best bet would be to go with a 1:64 truck I have and then change it up. Would that be acceptable?


Go for it, buddy! As far as I'm concerned, as long as you didn't buy the basic "kit" at the local used car dealership and have to sign the title, it qualifies! :lol:

so when someone mentioned "the vehicles from ides of march" i started thinking...there aint no vehicles in that song...better yet, there aint no lyrics to it PERIOD


"Vehicle" is a great song; one of my favorites.

To build a car to represent that, it begs to use something like one of these:

1965 Lincoln with one of Missing Link's outstanding resin sedan bodies.
A Jo-Han Cadillac 4-door.
A Modelhaus Cadillac, Buick or Olds from the early 1960s, or 1962 Chrysler Newport.

My thoughts exactly: Something vaguely menacing, very shiny, and VERY dark windows. If the builder wanted to update the theme, how about a Chrysler 300? My other thought would be the old AMT '70 Ford Custom 500, but fully blacked out, bootlegger-style. I have to agree with your basic premise though - Early to mid 1960's, and mid-to-high line.
