I really like the box art on these Monogram's...I would buy them just for that alone.  I was born in '84 and a drag racer so this is a no brainer for me.  I think it would be really cool with a snazzy paintjob to look like a nice weekend bracket racer.  I would probably update the hood scoop and lose the passenger seat for a more modern look.  As for color......bright and wild always work's on racecar's, normally I am subtle ,but racecar's give you a chance to be a bit more crazy and look the part.  Good luck

Thanks Guys,, Oscar the frame seems to be fairly straight, Everything is falling together perfectly. The cage just held together with no gaps.

I built two of these years back one as a Georgia Highway Patrol Race Car and one in my Sheriff's Office decals.

They are still in boxes since our move to TN 7 years ago :)

I always liked those pro-stock kits.

Please keep up the pics, looking great so far !
