Claude Thibodeau Posted July 29, 2020 Share Posted July 29, 2020 Hi! Was very active during the pandemic. and found time to build my annual Lakester. This 32 roadster (AMT'S) is my latest member of the FLAT EARTH SOCIETY. What if a Cannuck was to challenge the famous So-Cal Speed shop car on the salt? It is a mostly scratchbuilt frame, based on the Phantom Vicky rails, but all the cage, belly pan, suspensions, instruments, tanks, axles, air-ride shocks, Optima battery & all are scratchbuilt. The engine is from Monogram's Turbo Coupe TBird, heavily modified. Scartchbuilt electrical panel, brake & clutch hydrulic cylinders, fire extinguisher, floor pan, etc. The front section is made of Monogram's 36 Mercedes hood top, sheet plastic side panels, Haye's TBird inverted scoop, a pencil eraser "nose cone", some fabrication, and the rear wing is made of a Gilette cartridge blades tray. The belly pan bulge is a plastic spoon, and the clear canopy is from a lightbulb blister pack. The tonneau cover was made with an Avanti roof panel. Fully wired & hosed. Rolling stock & rear quickchange section from MT's Challenger. Custom decals. Tamya's pure white + Italian red lacquer panels. Hours of fun with styrene. Long live the salt!
