WOW !!!!

That looks real !!!

I'm not near that good.

Starting my first late model using 2011 UMP body rule charts.

I'm sure it won't be near what that looks like. GREAT JOB.

Been trying to join Fred's Resin Workshop forum, but I'm not sure if I'm pushing the wrong buttons or what.

I've sent an e-mail to Fred. Maybe that will work.

After racing for 15 years and building all 6 of the cars I raced, I decided it was time to build more plastic dirt cars.

That is very impressive! Tell us more ...

I always liked dirt racers but my glacial building style prevents me from a completed one. I have an old modified on the bench of the '35 Chevy. This is the only photo of where it sits.

Don't know where Drew got his, but You can get some from FRED'S. I'm working on a '64 Chevy II late model and using a bunch of his stuff.

Since they only have forums for NASCAR and Drag Racing, maybe the bosses would consider adding one for dirt, or maybe combining them all into Racecars? I'd like to see some Indycars and whathaveyou as well :lol:

Nascar seems to be pretty much the catch all for most of the racing builds. Honestly I think changing Nascar to Race car wouldn't cause to much distress but apparently several times changing it has been shot down.

Dirt is for racing,

Asphalt is for getting there.

I'm sure glad the question was asked ... there's some excellent lessons in Applied Dirt going on here!

Chuck, if his did, its not the only one....the Nova dirt car I'm presently building started out as the Rat Packer kit...

Very cool! I started an asphalt car a few years back (after seeing Drew's Bench Racer column a few years back ;) ), I might have to take it out of mothballs and finish it as a dirt car now!

Yes, I'm a member there, but haven't posted anything in such a long time that I'll probably have to sign up again. Ron Royston, that posted those beautiful vintage "skeeters", runs that site.
