AMT Willys with the injected SBC from the Nomad kit.  Scratchbuilt headers, home printed decals, and scratchbuilt trailer.  Green tint windows are from some packaging material I had lying around.

One I have in work.  The interior bucket is part Firefighter Mustang and Pontiac Firebird snap-kit Pro-Stock, the incomplete cage work and chassis are scratchbuilt.  I will be using the Ford engine from the Firefighter kit.  Having some issues with paint, so this one is back in the box until I can get my basement work area back together.

Alot of great looking builds here! 

Here's one of my latest. Built from the Johan kit with aftermarket decals and a bunch of Pro Tech detailing parts.

That's a great looking Mustang Charlie! Is the engine also from the Jo-Han kit? I'm asking because my dad who built the kit when it came out, keeps always saying that the engine was undersized in that kit. Yours looks very good, so either my "old man" remembers wrong (would not be the first time :P) or you changed the engine.:)

Thanks W - 409, 

Yes, that's the engine that came in the kit, less the blower pulleys/belt which is a Pro Tech part. I think the engine is very scale correct, along with the rest of the kit. Johan was a great company and I wish they were still producing kits, we would have had some great offerings 😞
