    I think this is what I will do. I thought of making the hinges function like the 1:1 do but the logistics of getting it to work right are way above my skill level. Thanks Tom & Snake for your responses

    Opening hoods ?
    I mostly build Hot Rods so I don't encounter hood issues. My current set of builds (4 64 Mopars) have hoods that I would like to display open and closed.
    Some kits have hoods that open and are held up by the hinges thru openings in the firewall, these don't. Either you have them hood up or hood closed. 
    So should I build them without the hinges and just set the hood aside or is there an easy way to make them pivot open and stay up?
    Two of them will be drag cars and will have removable hoods with hood pins but the other two will be street racers.

    Nice build. I hope you don't mind but whenever I see a nice build I save the pictures for future reference to improve my detailing.

    The Tweedy pie was built by Bob Johnston and the Kookie Kar was built by Norm Grabowski . Norm actually did some of the driving in the TV series

    After reading the backstory on it's history I don't see much of chance of it being made a kit. It still would be a fun build.

    Nothing special but I found this for $10 on clearance. After doing the Chevy Bison (posted in the big rig section) with my special needs grandson I needed another project for us to work on. This should fit the bill very well. Just got find another set of DOH decals

    I started building this kit with the intentions of putting in the original flat head. Failed to test fit and discovered after painting the body and frame that the engine was longer than the one in the kit. Learned a lesson that day. It went back in the box where it sits today (since the early eighties) . Maybe I will revisit it in the future.

    Personally I would have gone with the Isley Brothers
