Gotta love the details, those headers are amazing. Mile deep paint, clean build and an engine that shoud run 7's.

I would certainly say that was time well spent.  The results very clearly indicate it was not a rush job, it looks great!

Never get tired of seeing this magnificent work of art !   Did you ever meet up with Mr. Clayton and get some pics of him with your model ?  I don't recall seeing any .

That's really awesome work. Vintage Drag cars are really cool and you really captured that with your build.

Absolutely gorgeous Bill, if the pictures were posed just right, you could pass this off as the real thing!

Well looking at that model makes me think that I spent my year building poorly. It is absolutely beautiful. Fantastic work.
