This is an Edsel I built in 2010 to represent the PanAmerican rally from the early days so U see that one can be part of it.
I hope to see you on board and hope it encourages others to take part it would be great to see more than I got with the other forum.

For what it's worth I literally just started it and was only able to get the engine glued together with a little paint. I know you want brand new models, but I hope you allow it in this build-off

I'll get going on it as soon as I have a couple of models on my work table out of the way. I'll scratch up a clipboard and handheld stopwatch to go in it, along with the number placard that the car wore in all of the moving events at the 2003 Corvair Society of America National Convention. We ran mid-pack in the rally, 2nd in class in the EconoRun, I ran 3rd in my class in the Autocross and my wife was 5th in hers.) Can anyone recommend a good source for something that comes close to 1966 Chevy "Lemonwood Yellow" in a rattle can?
It looked nothing like a drift car. It actually looked basically stock if you overlooked the slightly wider-than-stock tires and the almost unnoticibly lower ride height. Since Corvairs ride pretty low already, an additional 1" drop didn't raise too many eyebrows.

To all others wishing to join this thread just remember it must look like a rally car "NO DRIFT CARS ALLOWED" it can be a club car, a state comp car, a national car, a WRC car, or even a Marathon or Trans-America rally car as long as it is a rally car of some sort and this does include tarmac rallies as well. Hope this clear things up a bit for allU budding raly car builders.

Jim So you didint had any rollcage in it then?
No roll cage, no roll bar, no roll anything! The only aftermarket safety device in this inherently safe car (an intentional jab at ol' Ralph Nader!) were a set of shoulder harnesses and my good sense in knowing my own abilities and not getting in over my head. The car was capable of a lot more than I was! I will be ading the aftermarket gauges the 1:1 car had - a tach in the instrument panel's clock hole and a pod of three gauges (oil pressure, head temp, and voltmeter) suspended under the center of the dash.

Patrik, so sure if U want to build a rally car model out of a street car kit go ahead just remember it must look something like a rally car.

It will be a full fletch Historic rally Karmann giha buildt out of teh Tamyia Karman giha. Or at least somethin as close as possible to what could run in a classic rally event these days.
