    that is too cool!!! there is nothing like an altered to slap you silly. you can keep your door cars as far as i am concerned. give me an altered anytime. yours has the look of the way they were back in the '50's and '60's. high on the frame and no body clearence. nice job!!

    just parts
    i was reading a early hot rod book and saw a lot of these kinds of altereds. i liked the way they looked. i dug through my parts box and found all these parts and put this together. i didn't detail it. just put together for fun. hope you like it.

    tribute to Hugh Tucker
    this was one of my favorite street roadster drag cars back in the '60's. i used to walk for 8 miles to watch it run at lions. i always wanted to build one like it when i was old enough. the problem is, it's a '28 Chevy. hard to come by in 1-1. i started looking at other makes and think i may be able to use a '29 ford body. it was at the nhra museum and it was on display, so i was able to get all the measurements i needed. i know Drag City Casting makes the car and i have one, but this exercise was to see if i could make an acceptable copy. i bought a 'glass model a roadster body and a 'glass '32 cowl in 1-1 scale, so you see, anything is possible. hope you like it.

    thanks guys for the replies. the body is just a 1/25th vw. i think it was that flower power one. anyway, the body is cut at the 1/4 panel and across the roof. the back is then rotated up and the rest of the roof is cut down to achieve the chop. the hood is lengthened a scale foot. if i build it in 1-1, i will keep the doors functional. i like to build models of cars that anybody with some fab skills could build and race in 1-1 scale. this would be a under 10 second car, which would make it more affordable by not requiring a comp license and certifications.

    how about a '30 ford phaeton?
    i got such an incredible response to my last question (thanks again bob) i figured I'd ask another. i was looking to build a copy of the Monogram Red Chariot '30 ford phaeton but can't find one. does anybody know of a resin maker of one. i checked a few with no luck.(flintstone, etc) thanks for any help.
