Nope, that's a real Auburn....well at least what was left of an original. James Hatfield from Metalica had that car built from a total wreck of a car he found in a swamp in Florida. From what I understand there wasn't much of a car left to start with.

Sorry I haven't updated lately. While I was off work I really couldn't do much and now that I'm able to work on it I'm back to work. The chassis, interior, and body are ready to go together I just need to find the time to get back at it. Here is how it sits right now. I'll see if I can get the windows in and join everything together this weekend.
And here is my hand, you don't want to see what it looks like under the sock...
Still going to PT twice a week, my third finger still won't quite straighten out but I'm working on that.
Yeah I have 1....only one I've ever seen. There was also a #1 Dennis Setzer Mopar version, also hard to find. They don't even come up on ebay very often but when they do they go for much more than your regular Nascar kit.......which at this point you can hardly give away.
I saw a bunch of Facebook posts about the passing of Bill Golden yesterday and today so I googled for more info. He actually died in April of 2011. I have no idea why the news just hit Facebook yesterday, people will share anything without ever actually thinking about it.
Round 2 can't afford to do new tooling ?? Really, have you looked at some of the new tooling they have done in the past few years for different Star Trek and other Sci-fi builders ?? Some of those kits are not cheap to buy and couldn't have been cheap to tool up. Why would they bother doing anything but reissues of automotive kits when they car make more money selling Sci-fi kits. Don't try to reply about this saying the licensing is killing new car models, those Star Trek licenses Space 1999, and others aren't cheap and easy to get either.
