Yep :-)

I cut the back half of the cab off, leaving the floor and about 6mm of the back wall in place. For the woody body, I drew up a set of build plans for the side and rear frames, then assembled them from 1/32" basswood like a Guillow's plane kit. The rear floor is a single piece of basswood, and the roof is .040" evergreen. All total, I cut and used 65 seperate pieces of basswood to build the body. The frame is natural, the inserts are lightly stained, and it is all covered with clear urethane.

That car is awsome with the wood body, plus I just love the Corvette. The T-bolt is really cool, too.
