I actually built two of these; the other I gave to Buddy Guy and sits at Buddy Guy's Legends in Chicago.

And with the old parts, I built this.

Big Howlin' Wolf fan here, but I didn't know about this car. Great idea for a build, and fine execution!

Looks to me like you built three unless the rusty derelict started as one of the shinny black versions. Very cool.

Thanks! To my knowledge, this is the only pic of the car that exists; it's mentioned in "Moanin' at Midnight: The Life and Times of Howlin' Wolf" by James Segrest and Mark Hoffman. Excellent book, highly recommended for any Wolf fan. :)

There's a new subdivision in Austin with a Howlin' Wolf street. I believe there is also a Stevie Ray and Muddy Waters street in the same subdivision. 

Cool models, btw.

Really cool! Chester Burnett was always one of my favorite blues artists! I miss the good old blues music. I listen to the blues on the radio as often as possible. Howlin' Wolf's car is awesome, nicely done!

Is the junker based on how the actual car exists later on in life? Or is it just your interpretation? If it's real and there's a picture of the real car available, you should post it with that model too. Sort of a before and after display.
