I started with the Grumpy kit but did not want to do the Grumpy car . I added a Connkur pre wired distributor , coil, and radiator hose . Paint is Tamiya TS 23 light blue and Tamiya TS 89 Pearl Blue . I didn’t like the chrome wheels but was out of dull coat so I sprayed the with Testors Black Chrome . Not the look I was going for but I don’t hate it , after market and parts box decals .

What a perfect name for a model!!  I would like to put those decals on a few of mine.  Great job on the Ford Vega hybrid.

Thank you all !  Did nobody notice I used a FORD 427 Shelby Cobra engine ?  I thought for sure i would get some hate mail !  How disappointing . 😀

I did, Vegas needed a Ford engine to go fast....even John Lingenfelter raced a Pinto before moving on to Vettes...

Good idea Ray!  There is nothing wrong with that especially when you are a Cobra fan like you...  It's easier to transplant mechanics than body parts anyway!  It fits him like a glove by the way!!!
