    Clearview 2000 comes in both blue and red, so you have good choices

    Nice!  Did you do something to tone down the chrome on the wheels?  They look really good.

    That is great.  Where did you get the front bumper?   Did you open up the rear wheel wells a bit?  Looks like MPC opened up the front wheels to get the chassis the to fit but left the rear wheel wells stock.  Nice build!!

    Very nice!!  Who made the body and what is the source of the chassis and Chevy engine?

    So if the front suspension uses leaf springs, are radius rods needed?  I thought the leaf springs located the axle so radius rods were not needed.  However, I am not a n authority on suspensions . Nice tie rods, btw.

    This is a bit of model car abuse, but this AMT truck with Revell Magnum wheels has had some pretty good runs, compliments of Estes rockets!

    Hi, that is really fantastic.  What clear do you use?
    Also, have to say the wheelstanding wagon is incredible.  It really looks like a 1:1  !!  Such nice work!

    I think the headers should be solve-able.  Take a look at the shot of the AMT Hemi Under Glass kit from the underside that is in this link http://modelingmadness.com/review/cars/hiotthug.htm  Based on that, you should have enough room. Also, it might make your life easier to have straight frame rails running front to back, instead of the way you have them coming in around the tire, then getting wide again.  With straight, narrower rails it'll be much easier to mount each engine to the rails. 
    Lastly, it is hard to tell, but be sure your new frame rails are not too big scale-wise.  If they are too big, it will limit the room you have for useful things like headers!
    This whole thing is quite the cool concept!!!!   Chris

    Beautiful build of my all-time favorite driver's car.  Nice!

    Given that this will be a flip top, I think you should make your life easy and leave the doors shut.  But the opening tailgate would be a great way to get more wow factor from the dual hemis!   Great concept!

    I didn't see this post til now, but I dropped by my San Francisco (Colma, CA actually) Michael's yesterday and everything was at the usual price.  The paint section looked like it had been ransacked by visigoths - same as when I was there a month ago.  Wish they'd straighten it out and restock!

    I met Fred about 4 years ago at the Custom Body shop in Utica. He was emptying out the building and putting it up for sale. He was still a character. Talked about telling his crew chief he'd cut off a very important part of him if he didn't get the car qualified at the US Nationals one year!

    Nice! For some reason you dn't see that built often, if ever. I am from Rome and was a big fan of Phil's when I was young. I am working on his 71 Charger. Not much more bench time and I will be done!
