    Skull, do you plan to use the fenders, you know, modified? Or is it going to be open wheeled?

    no fenders, open wheel look is what what l like, it fits the style dad ran in the 196O's.

    some pics of the vision.

    Okay Skull, sounds good. A lot of folks on here are eagerly awaiting its progress. Will you be running CSB and drive train or are you looking to do something a little different?

    Can't run race numbers on streetcars where i live.

    My mild custom used to frequently alternate between sled and the 60's stock/race car look just to throw people. One day she'd be a tail dragger and the next lifted a lil with a blackwall rubber rake with widened white steelies. All it needed was the numbers and over top stripe to complete the deception. Magnetic ones would've been the go. I used to love driving it as a "hottie".

    That's nice! Good stance and nicely understated. Wish they had gone with some H&M style stock car steel wheels...instead of those larger stock car wheels. But very pretty!

    nice, anymore info on this car?
     
  15. This is my idea for a '48 Chevy business coupe I got.....everything is pretty much to scale. I used a tracing to get the proportions right. I'm going for a 60's pavement modified vibe.:D

    the pic from the hot rod site , i think is a ray everham build.
     
  17. That's cool. Did you use MS Paint to draw it?
     
  18. I used a combination of Printmaster (for the drop-shaded text) and Gimpshop to paint it. It's pretty lame, but gives me some motivation to work on it. :D

    The Packard sounds like a very cool project. I've long been a fan of the La Carrera type of build. If you do build this and start a build thread please post it here. I'd love to follow your progress.

    Oh and the Buick video....... Awesome!!!!!!

    When I was in Daytona for speed week in 76 there was a 65 ford running around on the street. All I remember is that it was red, it had the right wheels and all of the graphics of the day.
    It has always remained as one of the coolest cars I have ever seen.

    not HAMB friendly, but I'd like building this one. Inexpensive to get the desired look, and the flip up lights are a plus for the look.

    I built a street legal Stock Car about 25 years ago and sold it right as it was finished.
    I could see myself doing one again.
