I don't know much about the title, but the car looks really cool :o Something you would see in American Graffitti except for the decals. I love the stance and I like the headers coming out behind the tires. What color and brand of paint did you use for this '55 ?? Did you have to do any suspension mods to get the stance like that ??

I didn't realize that they went all the way to R in the stock classes. That must be one slow racecar! Nice model though.

Are those older style contingency decals still available? Great job on the 55!

:rolleyes: In the 70's I used to drag race my 4 cylinder Triumph Spitfire. I usually ran against a guy in an old 6 cylinder Falcon.
WE RAN IN Y / STOCK !!! And I'm not kidding.
