Man there are some really great builds here. Kudos to all. 

Brett - Id like to know what you're selling in the concession stand because some of your patrons look like they've been having a really good time.

heres a few of mine...the Dutchman was one of my grails...so was the bounty hunter-polar lights kit n aftermarket decals...dragster was my first real venture into scratchbuilding-while not on the same level as many builds here it caused me to stretch my abilities...working steering wheel-using gears from a watch n ho scale slot cars, frame from aluminum tubing n styrene, injector scoops from an old vcr, metal body, homemade decals..the thing in the background is a stretched deora-working gullwing doors, slant 12

Here's the Marcellus & Borsch I pretty much scratchbuilt back around 1969 or '70.

Here are two of my latest ones, a '55 Chevy Gasser built from the Monogram BadMan kit with lots of modifications here and there, and a '64 Ford Thunderbolt.

This is a 1/32  '55 Chevy I threw together for a slump buster.  I found the slicks, front axle, and blower in the scrap box.  The headers, hairpins, ladder bars, injectors, Moon fuel tank, and driveshaft loops are scratchbuilt.  I think I may need to put it back on the table and lower that front end a little.
