Hall Of Fame Sprint Car Model

Posted (edited) · Report post

I'm building this for the AZ Motor sports Hall Of Fame in Phoenix. It will be the Stanton #75 house car that ron Shuman drove back in 1979 and 80. This is a mock up with the parts I've made so far.72858_626988337318210_1959187287_n_zps3e

This is going to be a very cool model. I remember going to Manzanita in the mid to late seventies to watch the super modifieds run, and remember watching Ron Shuman, he was a Manzanita staple.

Manzanita was a great track; I wish it was still around. I finally got the tires and wheels done so I can build some fun stuff.101_3746_zpsff0d2e6f.jpg

Fantastic Ken. Great workmanship there, looks just like the 1:1. Why the roadster headers instead of zoomies, and it's too darn clean!

Actually all the pictures I have from that year, this car had the more conventional sprint car headers. I do need to learn how to make them look dirty. They used let the exhaust pipes rust up, which would be anothe cool touch. Some guys can do that just perfect and others, not so much.
