I started this for my nephew. He is autistic. I am his role model. Since I build models. He wanted to build models. He saved up his chore money and bought this kit. Its a snaptite kit. He wanted it to be turnt into a drag car. I took him to the local drags here in xenia ohio at kil-kare speedway and every since wanted a drag car. So this is his drag car. I fabricated the hood and drilled holes for the exhaust. I still have a little sanding to do on the hood. It probably won't have a motor or roll cage due to it being a snaptite model. Probably just gonna throw some slicks on it, paint it, and cut a piece of tube to put through the exhaust holes.
Thanks for looking!

Congratulations on getting your nephew interested in the hobby.  I grew up in Dayton my Dad used to race at Kil-Kare often when I was a young fellow.  I'm almost 50 now.  I spent many Saturdays at the strip with my Dad.  I hope your Nephew enjoys the Chevelle.

I grew up in Jefferson Township.  It's in the southwest corner of the area and about 10 minutes from downtown Dayton.  I bet your nephew had a ball watching the jet dragsters.  I saw a few of those as a kid also... pretty cool stuff.
