Here's an AMT '29 customized Woody with cut off fenders, handpainted wood grain on the body and bumper, and a surfboard for flavor. The tiki shifter was handcarved to go with the surf theme. I adapted speed parts from a '31 Woody, added ignition wires and tail lights from my parts box. The headlights were cut apart and relocated. I took out the inside wood panels to give the vehicle an open air feel. Thanks for looking and comments welcome!

I haven't seen one quite like that before.  Interesting take on the Woody part - I like it.

That's very cool !    I like the open body idea . . . it looks like it really belongs on a beach somewhere !

Nice job, like the open look.  I can just imagine the noises that thing makes, it would be an experience.

In real life that body would probably collapse without the support of the wood, but hey, it makes one great model!  Very cool!  And as I said on the Spotlight board,  you need a skeleton standing next to it!
