Yep......that's how it happens! (and happened in my case)
Thank you.......a well written trip down Memory Lane!
Yep, the Little Books, living in the 50's and model cars did it!

Here's a couple bitchin' models of Tom McEwen's HEMI CUDA 1965 (rear engine) Barracuda Funny Car:
PS: Happy Birthday @J.Ukrop !!!
I'll bet the driver "astronauted" his firesuit on that run! I am Butch/56sedandelivery.
Man, what an excellent build. Looks killer with the Hurst mags. And thanks @HEMI32 —I feel older already!
Are those two different models?
The one with the chrome wheels has a tach on the dash, hood pins, retainer clips on the rear window which has vents in it, different front suspension, no front bumper. It also has the roll bar behind the bulkhead where the second one has it forward of it.
Nothing gets passed @Sancho !!!

Way to go Joey, I didn't realize you were that old (Happy Birthday)! Great read and guess what, I'm starting a new build of my own (in styrene). It's gonna be a gasser and I've never seen one of these cars build in this style. Rounding up the parts (body, frame, etc./ EBay) the rest from my parts stash (I hope). Later, Carp
Does this thread ever bring back the memories.
Good luck.Have fun.Be safe.
I have a picture of that car or a reproduction of it around somewhere.
