Dang, thats outstanding! That shortened tub body fits quite well into the overall look. The color, wheels and tires, headers and carb scoop, suspension, and that cool blue tinted windshield are great. Wish your pics were larger, i'd save them to my Tee album. I dig this, John!

John,

Love this built, the little often left out details ..... header flanges and bolts, exh. pipe brackets, air filter inside the scoop etc .... VERY nice, it just looks right !

You must be a giant in order to pick up a real car and hold it in your hand like that.

Very cool, that would be a neat Hot Rod to cruise in if someone built one in 1:1.
