Nice scratchbuilding! It looks exactly like a brand new dirt tracker id see on an average sat night...only a lot nicer.

You sir, are an artist beyond words. I'm pretty much speechless after looking at this.

How long did it take to build this?

It took me roughly 3 months on and off total to build it. It really tested my patience a few times during the build. Really had to refrain from throwing it across the room at those times...... But in the end it was all worth it I guess. So thanks eveyone for the kind words.

This is a pic of some of my work and some nice hardware to go along with them. I was told by a member here that my builds have a lot of faults... Lol!...I guess the proof is in the pudding as they say!!

Bill,

Great to see a local person's work. Sorry I don't go to the show any more after they forget to judge my '34 Ford, and were asking contestants to be judges.

Your scratch building talent is quite impressive. You are right in the heart of dirt and Super modified Country. Keep up the great work.

It not racing until you race on Dirt.

Well, I got a phone call a little while ago from a friend in Tenn. Well this car that I built and sold made its way down to the Atlanta NNL show. My buddy said that his friends and some Atlanta people said "We recognize that car......Bill Chick built that" I thought it was pretty cool! He said.... see.... people down here in the South even know who you are! :P I have no idea how it did, but it was some pretty cool news! B)

Bill,

The stewart car in Atlanta was not yours.... It was Jeremy Reidmueller's build. His has the correct black chassis. I know your chassis red. He and i roomed together and i got to see it in person. Gorgeous car as well.

Yeah .... I found that out David, after doing further research.... Jeremy's car is fantastic. He was building his around the same time I was with mine. As soon I as saw the photos from the show I knew it was his and not mine. I sold mine to a person in New Jersey.
