My '61 Galaxie

I bought this kit a month ago with an upcoming contest in my sights. The theme of the contest being 'Fins & Chrome'. I thought this would be a fairly good kit & an 'out of the box' entry from everything else, no pun intended. I couldn't wait to see what was in the box, so as with all little kids, I opened the box as soon as I got in the car. To my surprise, it was a curbside/promo kit. Needless to say I was a bit upset. I just put everything back in the box and drove it all the way back home from KC to Salina.

I let it set in the box for about a week & finally decided what to do with it for the contest. I had watched a lot of how to videos & put what I had learned to the test. Please take a look at my pics & let me know what you think & how you think I might do this Saturday at the contest. Oh, & Doc, thanks for the education.

Now on with the pics:

Love it, LONG LIVE RUST and everything else. I love the headliner work. Very nice.

Not my kind of build, but I agree with doc - the headliner looks terrible, as does the interior. And I mean that in a good way.

This is probably the status of my old '61 Starliner if it's not crushed already. Good job.

That's a very nice job on the weathering. I remember some cars that looked like that and were still being driven.

​Thanks for all of the positive words guys. I've looking forward to showing it off this week end & seeing what kind of attention it'll get. There aren't usually to many builds like this that show up at our show.
