-29 A Modified A; tribute to a real hot rodder

06 June 2011 - 10:18 AM

Somethis I se a real car that just begs to be copied in scale.
That was the case when I read an article i Street Rodder Mag. a few years back about a -29 Modified ,owned and built by Dave Lukkari.Both the car and the owner where nicely portraited.The photos where not good enough to serve as a plan for copying in scale.
A few years later ,another article in a Swedish magazine ,Wheels.Perfect photos! Now it had to be done!
Starting with body and frame from AMT -29 Ford,Ardun engine from -50 Ford pick-up ,a lot from the parts-box and with some scratch-building on top ;voila! A decent copy of a great car1To bad I never had the chance to hear what Dave Lukkari himself would have thought of the model;I was sad to learn he passed away in dec 2010.
But here it is ;a tribute to a real hot rod and a real hot rodder!
