Looking good, I've made a couple parts box smash-up Saturday night race cars, they are fun!

Road runner: they are from a early 80's monogram t-bird kit. Any of the early cars or even the double kits such as the kulwicki schrader combo or the Parsons bonnett kit should have them. Thanks for the comments guys

Cool build. Just like dragging 1:1 bits and junk out of the boneyard to put together something to race. :)

Looking good so far. Reminds me of my dad's ex-boss, who had a Monte he went short-track racing in; this is very similar in flavor and execution to what Fred had.

I know he went racing at Stafford Srpings, and I think there was one other short-track on the Mass/Ct. line he'd go to periodically.

Only see one place I will have trouble and that is matching up front and rear firewalls. Then I gotta make a way for the Hood to sit on it since I cut out all the inner fenders and firewall from the stock Monte Carlo body
