Beautiful build. I've never been a fan of diecasts but this model is changing my mind about the possibilities of working on these things.

Well done !

Nice to see a gas class car actually built to NHRA rules. There are far too many model "gassers" out there that are just loose interpretations of the term.

 

Well done!

+10 on THAT!!!

 

Well done my friend...a heck of a save and very nice, precise modifications!  You should be very proud of that car!

Yeah I have to agree. ....Even if I'm a guy who has built many of those "Gassers". But where to get the rules? Personally I have absolutely No Idea about these Old Rules, and I bet someone else has this kind of problem too. That's why we, or at least I, build "Gassers" instead of Gassers. :D

This is an awesome car and the paint just glows!! Is that HOK?

 

One of my favorite builds on this site that I have seen so far!

 

If this was a Kit I would buy it in a second!!

 

Great Job!

Cliff,

You nailed it !   This is the kind of build AND builder that impresses me because, actual THOUGHT and RESEARCH was invested to make an accurate replica of the times !

 

Well done !

 

Alan :)

Now-a-days, thanks to the internet, I find it relatively easy to find info like this on a Google search. You sometimes have to reword the search a couple of times to get the info you need but usually it's out there somewhere.

I saw this in one of the magazines and liked it then. Love it even more to see all of the work involved. Also love the fact you followed the NHRA rules of the time. Excellent.
