The Twister

Recommended Posts

I am replica of the most famous race car in Arizona, the Twister. It was built by Hank Arnold back in the early 60s and he won a bunch of races with it until he was killed in 67'. The car was found by a friend of his and restored and the guy live a few miles from me. It has a Chevy 283 with a blower and Hilborn injection.

Like all my stuff, this car is 1/8th scale and 100% scratch built with styrene, fiberglass and aluminum.

Note the Jacob's Ladder is on the left side; something I had never seen before. It is usually mounted on the right side
