    Howdy, Brad and Chris
    I took a quick look for the Spaghetti Bender restoration article. I have lots of boxes of magazines, so it is not as simple as I thought. With that said, I did do an internet search and found some pics of the same car. It looks like its the company that did the restoration. Can't get a better source than that. 
    Here is the link.

    If I have the time to sift through the boxes, i'll post in the reference section.

    Chris,
    I seem to recall that either Street Rodder or Drag Racing magazine did an article on the restoration of a Spaghetti Bender. If you want to I see if I can find it.
    Welcome aboard, Gary. The pics are great!

    Michael,
    Your Bantam build was a great thread. The final product came out great. I'll be watching!

    I built these when I was a kid. I had to replace them as an adult.

    If I wanted to buy something built by someone else, it would be this...

    Otherwise I would build one of my models in 1to1.

    Right on the money, Alan! I look forward to seeing what you pull down from the shelf of doom. I have one or two there myself. Seems like a good idea for an article.

    Mike Turk was to first person to talk to me about making parts over and over until he was happy with them. (Light buuuulb!) Remember his chain drive Nash Metro? 80's pro-street to the extreme

    Even Clay Kemp talks about making parts more than once.

    We all start somewhere....Where we end up is a matter of choice.

    I don't have pictures, but I believe her.... My wife came home and told she saw the original (Barris) Batmobiile driving down the street. Grey haired guy with a cigar was driving it in Riverside, CA. Gotta love SoCal.

    This morning was the annual dog skunking. I guess it takes then one year to forget. At least j have the supplies on hand. Still stinks. Got to work after a second shower and they still smelled it. Went home and scrubbed the dogs and myself with the de-stink mix - again. Went back to work only to have them call me Pepe Lepew. Fun day.

    I'm a leftie too. Waiting for the mother ship to come get us. You can keep your stupid scissors.

    Wow. (Has that been said already?) Wow-zers! This is a great project. What a fun piece to look at. The tractor and farmer are excellent. The surfing pig is only equaled by the chicken with the strap on dorsal fin.

    I don't have the talent to pull down the big awards at contests, but through trial and a good amount of error I can usually create the vision I have in my head. It helps me to draw it out. I am not a great artist either.

    That is where you see the talent come in. I have a few friends who are professional automotive artists. If you have ever seen a true artist draw it is an amazing show. Every once in a while a professional artist get the urge to build a model. I can usually spot it. There was one doing upgraded Deals Wheels on another site. Very nice stuff.
