    You can contact Nikki at poppawheelie65@yahoo.com. I have had very good results with her decals and would highly recommend them.

    How about an American Graffiti version of the AMT kit.

    Thanks, but diecasts are usually 1/24th scale and it's hard to kit bash with 1/25th scale parts. It just would not look right. I'll stay with what I did. I did call it a phantom take.

    Billy, outstanding work. Love the exact detailing and the stance.

    Decals arrived. Had to modify some as I am trying to replicate his car as it was in 1965. He made many changes in '64 and '65 so this is a guess based on pics. Let me know what you think.

    Yep, that is the restored version as it was run in 1967. Had a hemi engine then instead of the Olds.

    Hugh Tucker's 1928 Chevy AA/SR phantom completed 5/26/2015
    Here's one I've been wanting to build for many years. It's a phantom take of Hugh Tucker's winningest AA/SR from 1965. I could not find a model of a 1928 Chevy roadster so I went with a 1929 Ford roadster body, interior and hood. Did find a '34 Ford frame and '32 Ford grill / shell as he used on the real car. Went with the blown Olds engine as he used in '65. Rear push bar, roll bar, headers and straight front axle are scratch built. All other parts are from the spare parts boxes. Am waiting on a set of decals from Ed at Drag City Castings to complete. Let me know what you think.

    '67 GTO Mr. Unswitchable Funny Car "What If"
    Was so inspired watching "TooOld" 's thread on his scratch build of Dick Jesse's '66 GTO funny car that I decided to finish my "What If" phantom version of the same car. Lacking the talent or patience to do a complete scratch built version like "TooOld", I chose a simpler plan. What if Dick Jesse had studied Don Nicholson's 1966 Comet Cyclone funny car and gone the same route. A full Logghe chassis, engine set back into interior, a full fiberglass stock body, etc. Well, having an old MPC 4 screw 1967 GTO body, a rerelease of the 1969 GTO funny car with the correct Logghe chassis and a blown 421 Pontiac engine, I set to work on my conversion. I did scratch build a Dick Jesse style roll cage and added a set of billygooche decals. Paint is Testors Bright Red. Let me know what you think.

    I have the mag article on the original Red 1965 Chrisman comet but would love to see your pics. You could post them on this thread.
