Not finished yet... I wont get to the level of some of you all. There is some real talent you all put into these
I haven't had a lot of time to build cars lately because I am a first responder, and this Coronavirus stuff is insane...as we all know. However, I did have some down time today to work on an experimental car and here's what I came up with. I have no idea what casting it is as it doesn't say on the bottom and I boneheaded it and didn't take any before pics. Stay safe everyone.
*added before pic since LoS, just schooled me...
Some of my small Gulf collection these are the cars I have both colors in These are the ones I need to find in the white version. Assuming they made them in white.
Had a Mountain Dew stocker with bad wheels. Went with these skinny yellow wheels that looked like they belonged on the “Super Dew”
Did a resto-mod project on my 1971 OG Redline Anti-Freeze Noodlehead. The 50 year old redline tires on it were no longer any good and were replaced with FTE’s wheel farmed from 2 different cars. The pipes are bronzed to kinda match the FTE’s and the blue HK window was replaced with a reproduction. It was a fun project, and now this rough car now has a brand new race life and is ready to hit the tracks. Now if only we can get a redline cars from pre-1975 race going to put this in?
found a S13 silvia casting while I was out the other day. It's long been one of my favourite cars so grabbing it was easy. Got it home ripped it open only to find one of the wheels was gouged and had a sliver of plastic hanging off of it. So now it has a FTE swap
Ok Ive got quite a few mods in the hopper but with no races coming up anytime soon I thought Ide put them aside and finish this one up.
White Ice Speed Machine done up to match the Redline Mantis I have. Lightly polished base with home done "Spectraflame" body and since its likely going to be raced down the road, it got another set of red wheels to match. I dig it BUT I also like it with the white test body I have as well. I might rob this red body to build an actual redline car with and put the white body back on. Who knows.
Its surprisingly quick too. Not one Speed Seeker/Speed Machine has made my "List" and this one mops it up without any extra weight added. Doesnt mean itll hold its own against other Mods but its a start!
This is something I have been piddling with for a few weeks now on and off. I found this F40 in an antique shop with bent axles and no rear hatch. I took the engine out of a Hot Tub casting. I am not finished yet. I am still debating on how to finish it off. Maybe a GT style wing on the back? What do you think?
My CCM build for the Gov’ner/CCM race.
Today’s mod is a Tobasco Racing Champions 1969 Pontiac GTO Judge. Metal/Metal, It had skinny rubber tires on it, so I scrapped those and wheel farmed a Manga Tooner that has tiny OH5S wheels, and I had to take a rotary tool to the fenders, as I don’t like the concealed wheels behind the wheel well.
