Rapid Roy Finished

Posted (edited)

I found a Deal Wheels 57 Chevy in a box of parts , most of it was missing and lots of glue damage . I used part of the chassis for my Car-toon Corvette gasser , leaving me just the body , interior panel and the figure. I remembered the Jim Croce song ( Rapid Roy that stock car boy ) ,And had an Idea .Just getting a start on it,glued a couple of old slicks together for the rear tires .Not sure what all I'm going to do to it ,but I will try to add all the little details from the song.

The car already has the right stance!

How about a decal on the fender that says "Baby", and another one that just say " Hey".

I got started on a few thing , It should go pretty quick except for Roy himself.
If anyone has any ideals let me know.

Lookin' kooooool! Just a thought; since you're going for the stock car look, maybe all four wheels/tires the same size?

That is a really cool idea and you're off to a great start, Pat! I think you're nailing it right on. Love the bumpers, exhaust and the way it sits.
