    Mike,
    That is really looking great! I love it when someone thinks outside the 'box'. Imagination makes building the models fun, whether it's the extra detail on a stocker or going the extra step like you're doing. I did something similar a couple of years ago, I did it with the PT Cruisers. I have a stock body, a 2 door Sedan Delivery, a 'Ute' pickup, a 2 door coupe and a funny car. I plan a gasser to be finished this year as well. Keep those ideas rolling and have fun.

    Nice build Steve and welcome to the forum. It's great to be able to show your models and get a few responses. Some times there just isn't anyone around to share your passion with. That's what the forum is all about.

    Blair, you were right about being a pain. Just when I thought I conquered something on the build, I find that something else does no line up right. But then when you change from the original kit there are always little problems. I used the drag front-end from the Chevy Nomad kit and a 427 wedge motor I had in the parts box. Had to do a little slicing here and there. Hope to have it together before Thanksgiving. I'll post some pictures then.

    Jason, that's looking awesome! Love the clean lines. It does look better without the fender ornaments, keeps the smooth looking lines. The engine choice is great. It always seems to me, that "color" looks sharper on customs, but I've seen a few with 'snow- white-pearl' that looked fabulous against the chrome wheels and trim. The first one was a '57 T-Bird with the fastback. Now that I think about it they were all two-seaters. Anyway what ever you choose is going to be great. Can't wait to see it finished.

    Great job on this gasser Blair. I decided to build one myself and found your site and it answered a couple of questions I had in mind. I had just recently built the Modelhause '57 Ford Country Squire and a trailer from Robb's Garage and thought a '57 Gasser would go perfect behind the wagon. I have been gathering the parts I need and doing some preliminary painting. I should be ready to start putting it together. I'm just trying to decide on the steel wheels from the kit or to go to chrome racing wheels? I guess I'll wait on that part till I get the frame together and can rest the body one it. Anyway love what you've done keep up the great work

    Been off the internet for awhile with other projects Ira and just got back. I started keeping up in the beginning of your build and now that I'm back.....WOW! I may have to have my jaw surgically re-attached after viewing the photos. You really did an outstanding job. This is the type of build that gets other modelers to really use their imagination on their own projects. I may be a lot of work, but the results are worth it.

    Love it Dave! Coming from NJ, I did spend a lot of time at Raceway Park and before that Island Dragway. Whwn I saw your logo, I just had to look. That's the place to get a lot of building ideas and color schemes. When I came home from the drags, I was always pumped up for the models for weeks. Always got the blood pumping. Keep up the great work.
