  1. '69 Mercury Cougar Eliminator

    Very nicely done!
  2. Shirley Shahan’s Experimental Hurst/AMX

    Update. Just wanted to post some pics of the progress. I did a little engine detail adding fuel lines. The rest is mostly paint detail, and I added the American Motors on the rear fenders. The dry transfer letters were a nightmare, with most of them being old and wouldn’t stick or one off the transfer. But I tried to get it as correct as possible. Thanks for looking!

    Thanks for all the tip on articles. I down loaded the Muscle Car review one. Good info. Here’s an update. I did the glass lettering over, exactly like the photos and did the lettering on the doors

  6. 1969 Ford Mustang Boss 302

    Looking forward to seeing it. I was going to do an original looking BOSS 302, then decided to do the Larry Shinoda prototype version, which was actually a 69 428 CJ Mach 1
  7. Shirley Shahan’s Experimental Hurst/AMX

    Shirley was the only woman ( at the time ) to win a major drag racing championship, which she then switched to American Motors and drove the Hurst prepped ‘69 AMX that was wrenched by her husband, H L Shahan. The website superstock AMX.com has some great photos and history on the car. The kit scoop is wrong, nothing like the prototype, but I couldn’t find any good photos showing it so I went with the kit scoop. I cant figure out what color the interior is. The pics are B&W, in one of them it almost looks like it could be blue, and I’m guessing the car was white, then they added the red and blue. I did replicate her prototype paint job, which looked like it was a metallic blue, not Big Bad Blue. I just guessed...

    Thank you!
  10. Hey All, While I’m working on the Strickler Impala, which I was going to use the Gardner 62 amt kit, I found the Strickler kit on eBay. So, I decided to start work on another kit that’s been waiting too long. Shirley Shahan’s Hurst/AMX experimental. I found some good pics of the car but they’re black and white. I had to piece the decals together and I used dry transfer letters for the door glass.
