Very cool. I really like that particular body style.

Mark this is Chuck about two weeks before He passed away. His Admiration for Drag, and Street Rods was prevalent in the models He built. By the way Good Job Chuck would have approved


Thanks for sharing that picture. I do recall seeing him, but sad to say I never met him.  Based on everyone's feelings for him, it was an honor last year to get the plaque that was attributed to him. His widow was very nice and I enjoy speaking with her. She had mixed emotions about selling his stuff, but felt that other builders needed to have it. I picked up a lot of bits and pieces from the parts bins that will be going onto projects for many years into the future.


Danno, I am thinking of possibly Beatnik Bandit or other Roth wheels, or Chrome Steelies.  Something flashy, but not modern.


Thanks everyone.  It has been a hard summer to get things done in the model room, but I keep trying to plug away a little at a time. I get these ideas sometimes, but I am not always technical enough to carry them off, then I get frustrated at myself for not being able to get it to turn out like I see in my mind. I have more interest in some of my subjects than I have knowledge about them (IE:I am NO mechanic). Often, that causes me to take longer at something that might be simple for someone else. For example, I know the carb linkage is not scale accurate, so I just want it to "look right" from a distance.

Finally the motor is coming along, but not completed. I do have the color on the body, shot over silver. It has been cleared but not yet buffed out. The headers will either be chromed with Alclad or flat white, I am not sure yet, and I am still stuck on a wheel choice. Very likely piecrust slicks at the rear, with either chrome steelies...

The gas tank will be fashioned from the square tube that the touch N flow superglue applicators come in.
