Greetings from Motown!,,just finished this "Woody". Its kindof what you might call a "GT"  package if it were ever to be  offered back in the day,,lol. Lots of scratch built stuff,,no after market parts on this,,just leftovers from the junk bxs. Some of the pcs were missing when I got the kit{ swap meet kit}  so had to use the thunderbird tire cover in back,,different rear bumper,turn signals on front fenders,scratch built,,And the mtr is some hemi out of a prostock kit,,have no idea which one. Tinted  the windshield + wing windows  blue   Scratch built visors,,roll bar,,seatbelts. I really like the   AMT kit supplied " woodgrain" inner panel decals for the sides,,nice feature. They went on with no problems. Its a bit different than the stock version,,but what a fun version it would be  to drive!IMG_2941_zps25b70363.jpgIMG_2943_zps7103e6d7.jpgIMG_2938_zpse8db9b5c.jpgIMG_2935_zps6782e450.jpgIMG_2946_zpsd7cdbb4e.jpgIMG_2953_zps4e8ceb5d.jpgIMG_2952_zps1e93bc73.jpgIMG_2950_zps24579df1.jpg :D

Nice work Scott, but I think it needs more power

LOL,,yea ,,thats funny.  ya know,,I  debated  about making  a whole new chassis  instead of using  the stock chassis,,because if this was a 1:1 car,,the 1st time you stomped on the gas  w/a  1100  HP prostock mtr  in it,,the frame would twist  like a sick pretzel. But in the interest of using stock floorpan,,and chassis  that goes w/it,,I just did it this way. The only thing I dont like about it is  the headers drop  a bit too far tword the ground,,I was going to make some out of solder,,but found a set that were well fitting into the engine bay,,so went w/those. All  in all  its a nice one to have on the shelf,,thanks for the kind words :D
