Looks like a lot of fun, Ira. Inspires me to maybe build a Deal's Wheels style Bugatti!

The MPC Dune Buggy Zinger has a 1/20 scale Boss 429 in it, if that fits the bill for you.

Thanks for the Suggestion Andy!

Found a 20th scale HEMI that looks much better than the BOSS 429!

Photos Coming... :D

Thank You for sharing Ira!!

These past few "Dealer- Peelers" have really been fun to watch Man!!

Thank You again for the pleasant divergence!

Later

IT'S GOT A HEMI!!!

I was sold on the 25th scale FORD 409 Engine, untill I saw the BIG HEMI...

I found a 20th scale HEMI Engine in the Little Red Zinger Kit.

The Double Superchargers were too tall for the Ranchero, so I looked for something else. I found a BIG Supercharger in the Groovy Grader Kit.

The Scoop from the WILLY WILD will be just what I wanted, after I do a few modifications... B)

Removed The Chrome...

First, I put the Supercharger and Scoop in the Purple Pond, to Remove the Chrome Plating...

Then I put the ends on the Engine Block & Cut the Block down a little bit.

I made a new base for the scoop, that moves it forward towards the cab.

I also Wired the Distributor and Drilled the Valve Covers for spark plug lines.

I'm new to this post. wOw... that was brilliant Ira, to graft on those those side pieces! The result just looks "right." (saved a lot of work too, way to go.)
