Thought the dampers/shocks looked a little on the "clunky-side" so I redid them with a little aluminum tubing and homemade springs...a little more to scale, I think

Wow! What a wonderfully chosen subject. The simplest, purest era of racing car design ('though admittedly fantastically dangerous, too...), rendered in a finely detailed  model true to the spirit of the period. More, more, more!!!!

   Very Well Done Kurt. OK How'd you do the Screen over the Intakes?

   Tony is one of the Hired Guns (Like David Hobbs) from back in the Hayday of Road Racing that is still with us. Had the origonal TransAm had an overall winner rather than Class only, he would have been the '66 Champ! Again, Well Done.
