That is some darn good art work there. That engine bay looks about as good as it gets. The hitch hiker looks so good i imagine a texas oil cadillac cruised up and gave her a ride.

A head-turner, and I don't just mean the hitcher!  Does a C&W song go with that vignette?

I wish I'd learned how to do figures; I want to finish a couple of dios (at age 77!) but it's more important for me to use my remaining time to just get my kits done!  A diorama is not much without people in it, usually.

Oh, and very accurate 265 V-8: the manifolds and oil filter are right on.  So many don't realize why a SBC gasket set comes with two driver's side pan rail versions; no built-in filter accommodation until 1957!  Some '57's were stock with 265's; as a friend of mine found out to his chagrin; thought he had a 283!  I used to drive a '56 Chevy Class II fire tanker for the USFS, and it didn't have much torque, but would really clock up -- if you had a good road for it!  GMC's used Pontiacs!!
