    58 Plymouth
    I made a couple of slight alterations to AMTs 58 Plymouth Belvedere to make this Savoy.

    I'm one of those who doesn't get concerned with the deficiencies of the model.  I'm just glad to have it.  Yous looks beautiful just as it sits.

    I love this era of Mopars and yours is really cool.   What's strange is that I don't like those non-shiney paint jobs, and yet, I'm really liking yours.  Somehow it works!

    That is very well executed.

    Kids and street rods
    The neighborhood kids are gathering, so things are going to get loud and wild tonight.  Remember the days when we had that much energy?  The weekend was considered a total loss if we didn't get the law called on us at least once, and the police would give us those wonderful lectures.

    Through the shop window
    I don't suppose that this is technically a diorama as it's heavily photoshopped and everything else shopped.  I call this "Through the Shop Window".

    Bill, thanks for showing the 61 Cadillac,   It, along with a 56 Cadillac coupe, 59 & 62 Olds 88 4 door hardtops, and a 58 Ford Custom 300, are some cars I have on order from them..  This 59 Mercury is one of the models that has benefited from their products.

    Chevy Titan90
    This Chevy Titan90 had the chassis shortened as well as altered to single rear axle.  The ten hole wheels were changed to two hole and the fuel tanks were shortened.  The front bumper was changed to what was used only on some of the very earliest trucks.  It's mated to an exterior post van for short haul delivery services.   I remember some of these that would come from Des Moines to Ottumwa (Iowa) and stop in cities in between.  Generally they would double park on the street and haul things into the businesses, but there were times when they would have to go down alleys.  I was always amazed at how those drivers could manipulate those rigs through the tight situations that they found themselves in.

    GMC Astro wrecker
    GMC Astro wrecker using the wrecker body from the Peterbilt kit.  I grew up in Iowa where we had what was called "Farmer's CO-OPs".  They sometimes had their own wrecker/service vehicles, and this is loosely modeled after one that I saw.  The chassis is lengthened and the sleeper removed.  A tool storage box sits between the cab and wrecker box, and a single exhaust is utilized.  Only the left fuel tank was used and it was shortened as well as having a removable cap attached to a chain.  The dash from a Titan90 I built is shown (though not yet finished), but the dash for this received the same treatment.

    This is a trip back to the early fifties, and it's quite well done.
