this is one of my favorite funny cars of all time.i got to see kenny race this car at a IHRA and NHRA event in 1984. i got this from a fellow modeler about five years ago.he also gave me a mint set of kit decals to restore it.here is what it looked like when i started it.

I have this kit and eventually one day I will do it,

now, the decals for sure are tosted. Were did you get the

decals to do the rebuilt, did your friend got them from a aftermarket

source or he just had them from a previous kit?

That turned out great. I saw him run that one out here at the Spring Nationals. I actually took some pictures of it. I built one too, in fact I just restored mine for the Good guys display last year. Those decals can be a pain. I remember having to put two layers of them on to get it to look right.

Again, great job! Thanks for the update.
