My 50th will be in October of this year. I have been away from this area for the majority of my adult life, 21 years in the military then later 12 years in ministry, so I grew up differently and away from all of them. I have made it back for a couple reunions. Since returning 5 years ago I have been in contact with a few members of my class, we get together once or twice a year and have dinner. In high school it was The Beach Boys, Jan & Dean, and the Beatles. In my early military career it was Grand Funk Railroad, Iron Butterfly, and Black Sabbath.
Those wheels may be available in resin, but I believe you are going to have one heck of a time finding those rubber bands...err...I mean tires to fit them. Good luck in your search. A local guy has a 1:1 jacked-up 1-ton dually Dodge with big rig tires on it.
Awesome work on a somewhat of a 'pig' design. I built one into a short-track car and have another and was wondering what to do with it. This build is giving me some inspiration. Can you give us some details on how you did the fenders? Those are really beautiful.
Good looking build. That is one of the funkiest looking Ford bodies I have seen in awhile. That grille looks more like a late Packard than a Ford and the "fins" on the rear fenders are way out of proportion. Still, all in all you did a good job.
