    Great looking builds John, they look like the real thing. One of the classiest paint schemes ever applied to a Quarter Pounder. I always thought wheel pants looked so cool on cars like Hot Tuna, Jade Grenade, Wheeler Dealer, TV Tommy Ivo and this fantastic looking KC car, back in the golden days of drag racing. Thanks for posting your exceptional work.

    Hey guys thanks for looking and enjoying these old nitro burners. Dave the Vega was produced by combining 2 AMT Vega wagon bodies and the chassis is a reversed MPC front engine chassis. Simply cut the front rails off and glued them behind the drivers cage, it also had real bolt on mags using jewellers screws. I did enter them in contests back in the day and they did win. The Camaro won best of show a number of times.

    Hey Sam great diarama's man. Here's one I set up for a cool shot of my Russ Davis Camaro F/C racing the Snake at BeeLine in 1974,  with my trusty Instamatic.

    Hey Mike, great pctures of your uncles Thames. We actually raced him at Bison in competition eliminator. I remember that the button tufted roof on the Thames would puff up at speed due to the air travelling through the body. That little Gasser was a hard running wild ride! Richard Woods the track photog got some of those shots I see. I think I use to piss him off because I had to get allot closer with my Kodak than he did with his 35mm, so I was always getting in the way of his shot . lol
    Here's Don Sherwins Pro Comp car heat'n up the hides.
    Not bad action shot for a simple instamatic eh? I was about 10 feet from the car to get it.
