    B/Stock '64 GTO
    Polar Lights '64 GTO built as a B/Stock drag car. Pretty much out of the box but has the following additions: Plug wires and oil drain plug added to engine, SD exhaust headers from the Revell parts pack with scratch built cut outs made from solder.They are finished with photoetched flanges. Steel wheels from the parts box: fronts from AMT '58 Chevy and rears from Revell Thunderbolt. Suspension is raised all around, with the front slightly higher. Interior has flocking added and side windows made from acetate with sponsor decals from Slixx. Rear tires are slicks from the kit with whitewall added. Thanks for looking! -Larman

    First WIP of 2011 -"La Cucaracha"
    This started as a "pif" from another board. It was just the bare body, interior shell and frame. The idea is barn find/ patinaed car made into a gasser. AMT '40 Ford sedan delivery. Everything used is genuine "junk" parts. About the only nice items on it thus far are the rear tires and they were off a junked '57 Corvette gasser I bought. Engine will be a BBC with either a blower or tunnel ram and fenderwell headers. -Larman

    Thanks, the monster is actually done in sharpie on decal film. It was added after I drew it. I figured I would try it on this car because it is far from perfect, but I am not sure I would use the technique on something that is supposed to be flawless. -Larry

    Monogram Beer Wagon Show Rod Finished!
    I built this Beer Wagon while on vacation in Florida. I painted the main parts with Tamiya Camel Yellow before we left.
    The model is basically box stock with some detail painting, but I did change the interior color to red. I also added red flocking for carpeting. This is the first Show Rod I have ever built in around 30 years of model building...I must say it was kinda fun! Thanks for looking! -Larman
