Now you had to go and post Rudy's beauty!
But look what happened to it!
As I said above, I have never seen this version of Rudy's Street Roadster Show and Go car. I'm not too inspired by the updated paint scheme, but what interests me here is that in this version, Rudy swapped on new, narrow and deep Cragar S/S wheels.
When I built my own A/SR Deuce Roadster about 3 1/2 years ago, it was inspired more by Rudy's car than any other single Street Roadster dragster. But I always liked the look of Narrow'n'Deep Cragars on very late 1960's/very early 1970's drag machinery, so that's what I put on my build - with no knowledge that Rudy ever updated his car with the same wheels.
Pretty cool to think that two builders - one in 1/1 scale and one in 1/25th scale; and one 40 years after the other - would come to the same conclusion about the coolest wheels to run in their A/SR Deuce!
Glenn, thanks a bunch for posting that photo!
And here are a couple of shots of my own car, the first one in its original form, and the second one after some additional upgrades I made to the model after the how-to article appeared....
Here's a link to about 20 more pictures of the car... http://public.fotki....g-do/page6.html
And while I'm disappointed with the SBC in the Rat Roaster kit, the new front and rear fenders would certainly lend themselves to an easier execution of an AA/SR, A/SR, BB/SR, or B/SR Deuce drag car this time around.
