'86 Chevy Monte Carlo - hopper style


Recommended Posts

Just finished this Monte. I swapped out the rear axle for something with better detail, scratch built coils and hydraulic struts and made a 4-link suspension setup.

Rides on Pegasus wheels and painted with automotive paint and nail polish. Flocked carpet with matching headlining.

Very elaborate paint work. Watching your build and seeing the paint work evolve and then the finished work it was still hard to imagine just how it would look. In addition to the paint work the entire build is cleanly done thru out.

I think they are ridiculous as vehicles but that is an outstanding model!  Great paint.


Yeah, they're totally nuts, but I really admire the creativity, finish and mechanics of them. I've only seen them on YouTube and they make me chuckle when they bounce them, especially gas hopping and 3-wheeling. Crazy.
