Does the kit no longer include headers, like so?:
Nope, Afraid not Casey;

The headers on previous issues look a lot like those in the Monogram '56 Chevy, which weren't horrible for the early '80s, but not quite as nice as what can be done today.

Funny you mentioned the Monogram '56 Chevy too, I've been looking at that and/or the '55 Chevy kit for parts on this one.

I guess we need a Monogram Chevy van kit history now.

How wide do you want the slicks to be? I'm trying to think of a 1/24 Monogram kit with nice slicks, but I think the Pro Stock and F/C Goodyear slicks would be way too wide for a "street" van.

The slicks I'm thinking that should work are the older ones that come in the older Monogran 1/24 F-Bodies and G-Body Monte Carlo kits. I know they aren't the nicest ones around but should give one if these vans a look similar to the one raced be that Jarvis fellow.

I think the last Monogram '56 Chevy I built was in the late '80s when it was still molded in turquoise. I think when they changed the plastic to black the turbo setup was changed to a blower, the snorkel hood scoop replaced the '78 Z/28 style scoop, and the wheels were changed from Western Bullets to turbines.
Is it just me or are the exhaust manifolds a bit oversized? Maybe it's just the way they appear in the picture.

Did you miss the "Monster Garage" episode Wheel-Stander Ambulance??
I remember that, it came out from Finnish TV few years ago, and it was great episode. I remember when they tested it on street.
