    I'm an ex racer and have been around racing all my life. Retired now so I'm attempting to build an 1/8 scale model of the super modifieds I started out in. It's scratch built except for the tires, wheels axles and motor block.

    [​IMG] Done. I'm ready to build a San Jose pavement super modified. The cool thing, to me, about these cars is that you could have a whole main event field of supers and no two would be alike. Today there would be maybe three styles at best with just different paint jobs

  15. I like your model. It's built just like it's the real thing. Good job form a like minded racer. I ran Super Modifieds and came from a family that raced for sixty years. Motorcycles for the Indian factory, jalopy's to class A, to sprinters, to Supers. Then I came along and built and drove hydroplanes, and supers. I'm new to this thread so welcome aboard.
