I wanted to build something quick and easy so I dug thru my parts and came up with this . It's my home built Zinger using a body and front wheels/tires from an AMT 1/43rd scale VW , engine from MPC Popcorn Wagon , headers from Revell Anglia , rear wheels/tires/axle and misc pieces from my Zinger parts box . These are the same parts Dennis Johnson used to build his very first Zinger back in 1970 except he used the rear wheels/tires from an MPC Olsonite Eagle , I had those but decided not to break up a complete kit .  It was fun but not so quick , ended up taking almost four weeks to finish ! .

Kind of cute in a strange sort of way.  Those rear tires look like they may have seen some street action.

Thanks Rick !  They're 2 piece plastic so I sanded the heck out of the  .

Wow! That is really cool! I expected to see the old Zinger model but this is so much better. Nice work!

Thanks Tony !  The AMT VW body is a bit larger and better detailed than the Zinger body .
