It was bought loose off Ebay in the hopes that it still had a few checkered runs left in it...alas, the better days are behind one of the better downhill racers in HW history.

So, a great racing casting in the Front Runnin Fairmont will get an FTE package and about 7g of weight...and we shall see if a second racing life is born on the Modified Circuit.

  • Looking forward to getting back into the workshop on Wednesday and putting a couple of builds together. — LeagueofSpeed

I've taken the leap into restoring a set of Sweet 16 Redlines. Here are the first 4 cars I'll be working on. It's kinda cool because I has a Custom Cougar and a Custom Mustang as a kid! I'll probably do a build thread for these cars...I'm looking forward to messing with them! 

  • Race restore or shelf restore — LeagueofSpeed
  • Shelf restore...maybe do some matching haulers to put them on also :) — 72_Chevy_C10
