Nice work on the model..If Curtis Turner had a car with a motor that wouldn't blow up, it usually ended up in winner's circle..Run it till it blows is the way he and Buddy Baker drove..

Beautiful build Curt! I recently found out Curtis was my paternal grandfathers cousin. I got excited and bought several  decal sets to build. Did you use the SS kit or the stocker? Or a combination of the two?
