That's going to be a very stiff front suspension set up.

That's because it's plastic! Thanks for the interest and comments....

Getting ever closer to some paint. Made some tail lights from aluminium tube and red plastic. Not finished with the mounting but I kinda like the Tweety Pie grill.

A little more fitting and sanding and it'll be ready for primer.

I've been doing a little paint and assembly on this one. The engine is from the AMT Catalina with a blower from the Tony Nancy kit with Alclad Magnesium and a touch of pale exhaust, it will have the long scoop eventually. Exhaust manifolds are from a MT Challanger. The interior is coming along also. Still have quite a few things to add but it is getting there. Thanks for looking.

I have seen the little Olds before, pretty neat car. 

It's been cold and rainy today so I managed to get a few details sorted out...

Wow. The work on this one is paying off. You have though outside the box on this one. Somehow you have come up with an original 32!

One of these days I'm going to buy a case of those Pontiac customs, just for the acre of diamond tuck. I did a Malibu wagon interior but it ate up both the kits I had...I shoulda thought smaller, like you!  :lol:

 

Cool 'lil hot rod.
