Wrecked '66 Galaxie #8

Recommended Posts

Not sure who the driver of this #8 was, but he crashed. That seems to happen a lot with my builds that don't turn out well. I've been wrecking model cars for decades. A 1/2" deep socket and a Dremel torch work well for making flat tires.

Great work simulating the damage.  Not sure what the problem was with the original.  It looked good to me.

Thanks, Jim. I guess I'm still somewhat of a perfectionist but, at my age I need to get over that. The paint on this one was mediocre, the tires wouldn't seat on the rims, and a few other issues bothered me. Besides, it's always fun to crash one.

Exactly! I went to Darlington several times in the 90s but, by then, they weren't doing the Darlington Stripe anymore. The new "stock" cars couldn't handle it.
