That looks good...I'd change that scoop and do it as a modern Super Gas/Comp car. Any way it'll look great.

Great start Chuck, I agree with Darryl, I think I would change up the hood scoop, but that's just me, I think it will look NICE whatever you choose to do!! :D

I see a W.J. Olds there. I like the scoop it fits that time period.

Nope, leave that scoop just as is because that is what was used at the time those cars were run, but I know you know that Chuck ...... Now here is a body we need cast ..... Don't know why they scrapped doing the kit, issuing that one is a no brainer!!!!

You could also do a killer Stock or Super Stocker with this as well

Alan you read my mind. :lol: I thought exactly that same thing right away when I saw the pics. But as a Pro Stock, it will look very good too. Can't wait to see more.

Its a resin body I picked up that represents a 1987 Olds but I'm redoing it to make the 1982-84 olds. The body had 1/25th scale wheel openings on a 1/24th scale car. I talked with my caster and we are going to redo the body completely as a Pro Stock only body and yes Cain you nailed it .....A WJ car will be made out of it and I'll be doing the decals for the silver car and the black car.Its in in the early stages right now , I'm reworking the the grill and headlights and I have already open up the wheel wells and now I have to start do the lips .

Chuck,

Nice start on the Cutlass where you found this resin body i would love to find one to replicate my neighbors 84 Cutlass that he used to race in Super Comp class back in the early 90's.

Chuck, I likes that a lot, and would maybe consider a return to 1:25 just to build one of these. :) Great work and brilliant idea mate.

So who was the original caster for this? I am looking for 4-5 and while 1/25 works better for my applications, I am not picky.
