    Looking good Fred.
    The Trans Am is coming together quickly, so far the engine is mostly done and the suspension and exhaust fitted.


    The bumpers and side skirts have been fitted to the body. They fitted OK after a bit of fettling.

    Finally for now, a quick mock up.

    Great paintwork Riley, that colour changing paintwork should confuse the cops. 
     
    Congrats on the new place Rob, it looks great.
    I didn't take part in the last two runs and I know that there are only a few weeks to go but I'm going to make a late entry with this.

    As you can probably guess from the condition of the box the decals are completely shot but all the parts are OK, just in need of a wash.


    Like most of my builds this will be basically box stock but I will be changing the colour.

    I like the vanball and the 6 cylinder or less ideas. Here are my two.
     
    1. Convertiball - convertibles, roadsters, phaetons, anything with the option of open air motoring.
    2. 21st Century ball - Anything built from 2000 onwards.

    This one was more difficult than last week's but I got it.

    This was an easy one for me.

    I picked up a couple of unusual Corvette kits at a show on Sunday.

     
    I was also given a couple of Airfix 1/32 Beach Buggies in need of restoration. The red one has modified bodywork

    Here's my daily driver, a 2012 Skoda Fabia 1.2 HTP.

    The most I've paid is £80.00 (around $105.00) for a 1/32 Airfix Austin Maxi.

    Staying on the subject of Ford Anglias I saw an Anglia estate this morning. Apart from that I saw a late 30's Morris Eight tourer, a 40's Chevy pickup, a 'shoebox' Ford, a Forward Control Land Rover, a Lamborghini Gallardo on a trailer and a TVR Cerbera with the hood up waiting for a recovery vehicle.

    When I arrived at work last Wednesday this unusual PT Cruiser was on the parking lot.
