That bottom photo is Gabby Bleeker driving his Physco altered as I have seen him at both Rockford and Union Grove back in the 60's.

 No idea!  To me, it looks like a Victoria with the bustle at the rear replaced by the rolled-under lower section from a sedan.  And all of the beltline trim removed.  I was going to cut the thing every which way until it was small enough to be an American Bantam.  Then I saw that Jimmy Flintstone made an American Bantam body in 1/25 scale, so I grabbed that.

Great pics Greg. Sure looks like the original Sizzler was a direct copy of Al Bergler's comp. coupe.

Lots of old drag cars here, and plenty of Hilborn injected small block Chevys : http://www.jalopyjou...t=456464&page=3

I was there when that photo was taken, how 'bout you Greg? Yes, I will be buying a few of these kits. I just hate "adding" more plastic to my already overwhelming "pile." Oh well.

Let's get back on track here guys (and Gals  :lol:Posted Image


Goin' away . . . Posted Image


now how about a little competition Round2 ? Don't you have this in your stash? Dig it up rewrap it, in say a tasty Comp Coupe style box art to do battle with Revell / Monogram ? Posted Image  and we know you still have some of these : Posted Image


Yeah, I know, same kit. But still, a little competition ( get it? :D ) wouldn't hurt.  :P  


Mmmmm  tasty :P  Posted Image


and you both have this body. How about a great little 2in1 kit ? Posted Image Bantam Roadster/Coupe kit ?


What's this ? Posted Image

Somebodys gonna love this one. With Wayne style Heads no less.  :o Posted Image

'Cuda's okay, certainly better than the Kit That Must Not Be Named - but this one strikes me as likely Revell's runaway best of 2013. Just plays closest to the company's strengths.

??? :huh: Posted Image
