Very cool build and right in my sweet spot!  :D 

I have this kit laid out before me right now, planning on doing a shiny build (unusual for me) and I was swearing I wouldn't do this....  hmmmmmm...

You are an artist with another blank canvas, love it! Hope to see many more of these from you like your '50 Chevys.

Gnarly-nice.  But given the spreader bar between the frame horns, should we be calling you 'Dr. Cammy' now?   :P

    I like this one the most of the two. Sans the Shull Exhaust "tips" it could have been a daily driver for a guy in High School in the 60's. Gonna guess the Cam is from a Pars Pack Engine, nice touch.

Funny you should mention that. I was thinking of building mine as a "high school hot rod" circa 1963-65, perhaps a resurrected and slightly updated late '50s car. (I'm planning to put it on the chassis of the '29 pickup, and use the truck body on the new chassis.)

BTW, this is a really nice model--for some reason, I like it a lot! B)

Doc, very nice job. We have one driving around in our town that looks in about the same condition.
