For my other projects I've been working on, I'm still aquiring just the right parts, so I've been working on an old AMT Double Dragster I got off of Ebay (red one), kind of a "rescue" and model building one handed skills exercise. Here's the progress so far. Different engine, wheels and tires front and rear, front suspension, new seat, new steering wheel, repainted everything.

Your re-do is much better than the original, very traditional!

Dave,

 

 Nicely done... Your version really captures the look of the era !!!   I especially like the wheel and tire combo on your car.
