Outstanding color choices add so much to the attitude of these rides! Both are simply perfect hot rods. Well done.

Thank you Rusty. Appreciate your comments

Love 'em both, but I'm rooting for grandpa to win the race! :)

Thanks. Well, there was no race meant to be held. I don't think these two dudes hang out with the same crowds. LOL

Both look great! Makes me want to buy some of these kits...

Thank you Oliver.

You definitely should. They are great kits and are also a cornucopia of rodders parts. I seriously believe this is the best kit Revell have produced in decades.

Great job on both and too hard to pick a favorite.  Choice of colors for their attitudes is right on.  Love them.

 

Thank you Gary.

Both colors were somewhat accidental, but I am really happy with the results. Still not a fan of working with the Hot Lacquers from Hobby Lobby, but maybe I just need more practice with them.

Both beautiful builds Michael! I kinda prefer the red devil with the attitude… 

Thank you Steve.

I am with you on the red devil choice.

Awesome work on both coupes!👍 Did you lower the front on both coupes and how did you do it?

Yes they are lowered. The green one not that much, but the red one is lowered as much as possible without completely modifying things. Basically it is the standard fair of grinding material from the front spring and shortening the shocks. 

This is the WIP I had going on here:

I like 'em both but that green one just speaks to me. 👍

Thank you Steve.

The majority on here seems to gravitate towards the green.

This goes to show that I don’t give this kit enough credit. It clearly builds into a great looking model and you’ve proved it x2. They’re both very well done and this is an excellent study in how the same pile of parts can be put together into two vastly different looking cars. My preferences lean me towards the red Coupe with less chrome, cast finishes on the engine accessories and black walls.

Sorry, I'm late to the party, but these builds came out great. I especially like the blue one, great color. 

Thanks for sharing

Nice looking couple of Hot Rods along with a great story.  These kits do build up nicely.
