Just finished this one. The idea was to build a typical Street Machine like I used to see on the streets in the late 70's / early '80s when I was a kid. I chose Revell's '68 Dodge Charger kit, added a hurst shifter, chrome chain steering wheel, ansen 5 slot wheels, traction bars, raised the rear of the car, I used the Hemi engine in the kit because I built that one for a Hemi theme at a local show, changed the street hemi intake for a cross ram, added an accel supercoil, wired and plumbed, paint is automotive waternorne basecoat and urethane clear. I painted the chassis black, as most street machine cars were at that time, rotisserie restaurations were not common back then... I also added a pair of Hush Thrush mufflers to it! :)

I remember those days...way to capture that time period. I had a friend whos older brother had a 74 Duster...L70's out back same kind of rake...my friend and I put on a backyard carnival to make some money so we could buy comic books. We sold tickets to kids to get rides in his Duster...oh could you imagine how many upset parents you would have these days.

Awesome, you've captured the '70s street freak look very well, excellent stance and wheel choice.

That's really nice; really captures the spirit of the era. But it's almost too clean... :)

What a great representation of a '70s street car! It's like a time capsule! The jacked up stance is perfect. Hi Jackers? My only critique is that the paint is too nice. Most of our cars back then were a little rough around the edges. lol

Very sharp...love the period street machine look...I remember seeing cars like that as a kid, though they usually had some dents and rust being in Ohio or coastal S. Florida..
