Another past build, chosen because of the great story that backdrops the eventual race win. A past winner without a ride, a car sitting in a museum with the WRONG engine, and a destiny for greatness... Anyone that has attempted this AMT kit probably knows about the less than correct rear suspension layout. I did a lot of scratch building on this one. The key being grafting the top of the Olds Aerotech transmission to this kit which allowed the correction to the rear suspension. Luckily, now there is a conversion kit available from INDYCALS  that makes this a LOT easier.

If it's allowed I am including a link to my FB album that has the complete build if anyone is interested. https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.2355285804511.138347.1321189330&type=1&l=b2a9428b4b
