Picked this up off ebay built for a couple bucks... striped it down, added a pro-stock scoop and did a repaint... built a chassis for it to be used as a slot drag car.

thanks guys... as a kid I built models like crazy, then stopped for a while.... I started slot car racing in my 20's and we used lexan bodies... the detail was ######.

than about 10yrs ago we started using model bodies, and it was a relief could start build nice more detailed cars... and thats where were at now.... they still use lexan when its all about going fast, but I stick with the model bodies.

but to answer your question, I only build models to use as slot drag cars these days... so a little hint to model builders... if your looking for parts go to your local slot track that has a drag strip and talk to the racers... we only use the bodies!!! we have tons of unused parts trees!!

Beautiful paint job on this Toyota! Nice save from what it started out as! Just wondering, is that an interior insert that you bought or did you scratchbuild it? Looks like the mohawked lego man is havin' a blast!

The interior is vacuform lexan to look like a driver with a helmet on... I dont like the look of my cars with a dude with a helmet so I have my girl paint over them to look like dudes with big heads... and I added a styrene mohawk to this one so he had a punk rock look... he has tatts and a studded choker as well... thanks for the kind words...

I was looking at the EXACT same one on ebay........................ if memory serves you picked it up dirt cheap. Great job with it. (what are you doing with the rims and chassis that you took off it?)
