Bryan,
Your build has me itchin to do my 29 Ford, lol.
It's a rat rod kit, but I'm gonna give it the shiny rod look.
Have others that are coming first though.
Corey
P.S. Cool old Buick.

the 4x4 ford truck is a decent kit, and so is the 53 ford.........the police car isnt that great, no engine detail, and all molded in suspension..........bummer, but i dont have any police cars in my collection.
