    i used to build stock car frames out of the used spruces. back in the old day when dirt track cars were hard to find, and before i found evergreen. most have got thrown out over the years. i used to cut up models and sanded the spruce were i would have half-rounds and glued them behind the seems. i had built a cherry picker out of some almost square spruce and some old air plane wheels. i looks a little rough, but what can you expect from a teenager. it is one of the thinss from my teenagers days that survives.

    as for the extra parts i save them for other people that are looking for parts in my local club. they make great junk loads, bodies to test new paint on, extra bodies to cut doors out of to open other kits doors up.

    the old boxes are used to store the parts. most of the boxes are sorted and many of the collections i have bought over the years are still unsorted, due to not having the time and room needed for sorting.

    hope this helps. gerry

    i have a real 57 and a 58 plymouth. the 57 is restored and the 58 is waiting for a 440 transplant. it is a shame that so many plymouth and dodge cars were lost to the movie. i'm glad you got around to building those kits. if i still had them they would still be in the storage boxes. has any one seen the stephen king movie "riding the bullet"? i has a haunted 60 plymouth in red. it's not a great as Christine but it has a few older cars in it. looking forward in the finished pictures. gerry

    you need some graphic down the side to break up the red. i think those stacks are a bit high, but the front bumper is crazy lowered like that. talk about a road grader! awesome looking ride!

    you could also use rubber o-rings for the front tires. they don't even touch the track and they look ok. you have to find a snug fit so they don't fly off!
