    Great start guys.
    I'm pretty sure you remember the '55 Chevy Badman. Designed by the awesome Tom Daniel and made by Monogram. Bad ass for sure, but I wanted to scribble a van, so…
    Sorry for the O.T. :oops:

    Possible finished project: 671 SBC 1940 Willys Coupe for C/Gas, towing to Detroit

    Hello,

    Between May and August 1960, we had plans to finish our 1940 671 SBC Willys Coupe to tow back to the Detroit Nationals in September. Our E.T. times and speeds were just "a hair" off of the national record at the time. So, we thought this would be a great place to compete and possibly set a national record for the C/Gas Coupe Class. Our only tow car was the 1958 black Impala. That was fine from our Long Beach house to Lions a few miles away. But, we knew it would not be one to take the Willys back to Detroit. So, we were in a quandary.

    This red, 40 Sedan Delivery and yellow, 40 Willys Coupe set up would have been very colorful and presentable. That sedan delivery would have to have the windows/vents open and rock music blasting all the way across the USA. That would have been some ride. But, in reality, we probably would have purchased a reliable, used V8 Chevy station wagon to pull the Willys back East, spare parts and all.

    We would have been a couple of teenagers on a cross country trip to compete against the best of the USA at the 1960 Detroit Nationals. The whole trip was going to be another fun and exciting adventure for my brother and me, exploring the unknown.

    Hey Ron,
    Thanks for that diorama. We would have been a couple of "burnt" teenagers going across the USA. During the peak of the early surfing 60s, I was so tan from all of the hours spent on the beach and water, that I was almost unrecognizable. It was wild, straggly hair out of the water,(fright style) salt crust on the skin surface, and that smell of Coppertone wafting in the air. The convertible would have everything but the salt crust on the skin.

    A very cool idea, though...That would have been an attraction just towing the Willys across the USA, let alone down the return road into the pits at Detroit...Thanks.

    Here are a few awards I did up for the Old School Review part of the Cavalcade of Cars this weekend in Hamburg NY.Wanted to stay simple and move around on style.Thanks again to Steve Cryan (modelapunk) who puts this room together, for asking me to participate.The last two pictures are of a 1 13/16' Williams wrench guitar that will be the Fedcospeed pick. this is a personal favorite for me this year and the recipient is very well deserving of some recognition.
    The last picture is the disaster left on the bench from thrashing to get it all done :eek::eek::):) car show trophies 002.JPG
