    The PRIMARY car is #47. The #87 is in the background. I personally didn't care if the body was correct. I would have just bought another one.

    Bill, thanks for your input. I don't know why I thought the six was in there. I still like the kit, but I had incorrect expectations. I really like those air cleaners. I'll have to order a few. I guess I also need a few pick ups...LOL!

    1957 Chevy Black Widow
    I pick up a Black Widow today (it did have the correct body). I thought the original issue had a 235 inline six along with the fuelie engine. Am I wrong? The kit has two V8's but no six. I'm a little disappointed.

    A custom maybe. In NASCAR, Chevy used the Chevelle in '66. I've never seen a full-size drag racer other than a Bel-Air or a Biscayne.

    A '64-'66 Ford truck would be nice. I will say that after reading all the suggestions, I like the idea of the '55-'56 DeSotos...

    The Joys of Unpacking
    I moved back to Florida last year and finally getting to unpack my stuff. Still looking for my paints and brushes. But I've found most of my kits. Some were surprises because they've been out of site over 30 years. My Mom must have had these packed up in her basement. These include old JoHan kits such as a '63 Chrysler 300 (hood less), the Heavenly Hearse, the '68 Fury I police car and the '60 Plymouth wagon police car. I have three Little Red Wagons and two Surfites. I am missing a few that I know I had. I had a Lotus Super 7 that was half complete,  a Trabant, a '53 Studebaker, a WWII Jeep also have done and an Avanti.
    I had a lot of paint so I hate to buy all new stuff. Maybe I'll get enough to do the little 1/32 Avanti I found.

    So, just asking....If I have a road race car, does it go into the NASCAR section or just the regular WIP and Under Glass sections?

    In the realm of getting multiple kits out of a base package, an Impala SS or a police car could also be made out of this...Not interested myself, just saying...
