This arrived today from Ron @ Resin Motor Replicas, the rims I had custom made by Jim @ MicroNitro, RB Motion stud nuts, resin low profile tires from Plaskitresin - ebay. I have a few other projects on the go at the moment so this one will be awhile, just thought I'd share. Ideas on colours etc welcome, just not yellow, lol.

All kidding aside, your gonna be hard pressed not to do yellow because of the commonality of it. Not to mention that is what everyone else relates to. However, that being said, go with a classy yellow, or a one tone/shade off yellow that you can really put some accent to.

This would make a great carrier for a race car. Over the years I remember lots of these converted to covered ramp trucks with altereds or roadsters in the back. Maybe slightly weathered paint to match the race car. I'm thinking purplicious.

I think Bart had the right idea, drop it and throw a hemi in there. This bus that Rich posted is one of my favorites. Here's some other favorites of mine I think would be a really cool idea for a build.

I know these are yellow but you don't have to paint them the same way.

Maybe not as radical a chop but something along those lines. All of the above ideas look good.
