I guess it's that time of the year to show our 2020 builds. I enjoy how you manage to combine different kit bodies together and make them look like that is the way they should be.

Wow! The 2020 annual build posts have started!

At first I thought it was too early but since you have better than 20 builds and are done for the year, why not?!

Great builds. A good varied group! Have great holidays!

Beautiful builds that must have taken a great deal of time to complete.

Wow, a great variety there and anyone of them would fit in my collection.  Some really stand out for me - I built the Nash years ago and it is rare to see them built.  The 33 Willys Hiboy is such a cool combination. The chopped 40 delivery is soooo slick!

 

I must have missed your wild 60 Pontiac's completion so it is great to see that all done.  Believe it or not,I have a close friend in Alberta who is building a similarly modified 53 Studebaker with a Mercedes V10 engine and Lambo transaxle - full size!  I have seen photos of the rolling car in primer and the similarities to your tin Indian are amazing!

I have planned to build a Crown Vic wagon for years so that was of interest to me also. But they all have a nice clean finish to them and  look totally believable.

Congrats on a great year!

thanx guys for kind words.  alan the 53 stud, real car sound really interesting, maybe a future adventure of yours in kit form?   yes they were darn near all kitbashed. the 32 was a newer kit but used the older fender assembly from a friend is all.  and the 55 ford is a promo body and interior with amt 56 kit chassis and engine under it.  actually the 40 panel is just chopped and body lowered down on fender assembly.  7 resin bodies, used in misc ways.  all builds have been on here during this year. my model buddies say i cant build right out of the box.  the tucker i had 1 day before i cut it in half to make a 2 door with nascar chassis and engine, 64 impala interior.  have fun with them guys how ever you can.  happy hollerdaz

You had a busy year and they all look wonderful. Your background with the mountains makes me recall the old Chevy commercials where they had the new cars on the very top of one of those rocky peaks.

Beautiful collection there. I remember watching your Pontiaclambo build, that thing is a work of art. Following the construction in WIP was a real pleasure to see as it took shape. Looking forward to seeing what's comeing in the new year!
