Has anyone ever built the cars from the movie Hollywood Knights? Turk's El Camino and Pie Wagon, the Rail Job, the police car, or Jimmy Shine's '61 Ford?

I've seen the '57 done a few times as one of the many incarnations of Hot Rods Project X. But that's about it.

1957-Chevrolet-Project-X-Popular-Hot-RodThe '57's on my list. I first thought of doing it in large scale, 1/12, then not so large 1/16th. Now I'm thinking more 1/25th. The iteration has me stumped. How many different versions were there? Small block, Big block, blown etc. I don't likt the latest version that GM did, too flashy for me. I grew up watching in change (test) in the monthly issue of PHR.

Wow, I haven't seen that movie in a very, very long time.  I've never seen any models of the cars in the movie.

I don't recall them ever showing "the rail job". It is discussed a couple times, but I don't think there was a car portraying it.
I did a Pie Wagon, but used a panel truck instead of a panel car.

The "Rail Job" was a Fad T with long front frame rails. They only show it in the race with the Cobra. I'd like to make the '56 Pie Wagon, a friend of mine lives in Boston, and says he sees the real thing at car shows all the time.

Great flick.

I'd love to see the Newbomb's Pie Wagon as a 3n1 kit with decals (so someone could build it as a plain delivery too or a dragger). And have a little figurine of Fran Drescher in the back. ;)
