Well guys, I fianlly got this thing DONE! Started on this over a year ago. AMT 71 Charger with the

heart of a Viper. Running gear to match. The name came from the Chrysler show car of a few years

back. Along with the wheels.Took the rear axle asm from the Viper and had a HECK of a time getting

it all in there. Coilover shocks all around. Rack and pinion steering from the Viper. And yes. The

engine and trans.

 Hope you all like. It really was a pain.

Brian

Brian - I can kind of get an idea of the model, however, the pictures are out of focus.  I do like the color scheme and decals.

Sorry about the pics. We got a new camera. Going to take me awhile to get use to it. The 3/4 view and

the chassis are not to bad. Gives ya an idea.

I love it! However, I'd like to see a "clearer" picture of the engine.
