1985 Oldsmobile 442 Twin Blower

Recommended Posts

This time no body changes, but the engine got a pair of scratch built blowers and a new exhaust system. Tamiya dark gray metal paint and clear coat. The wheels and tires from parts box, as the brakes too. Stock interior brush painted, the shifter is now more race style.

Very nice.

I like the color combo and the choice for wheels. Suits the car very well. 

Where did the twin supercharger setup come from?

I just saw this on "On the work bench" and now your finished already. Came together fast. I like your color finish and the body mods, but the engine is the most interesting part to me. Very well laid out and all the finishes look right.

Thanks everybody! The twin supercharger setup is all made by me by cutting and gluing and shaping. There's 18 pieces per charger plus tubing etc. 

I started building this Olds many months ago, but it stalled. Now it just needed interior finishing and painting the body.
