Quarantine Cars
Posted by hodrodz on Thursday, May 21, 2020 9:34 PM

Coming back to the hobby after a 10 year hiatus, been looking over the forums and haven't seen anything about projects in process or completed while under quarantine. So what projects has everyone been working on or completed. Pics or descriptions.

Mine is a 1/16 monogram 427 AC Cobra. Twin turbo setup with scratchbuilt intake, and intercooler. Wired engine compartment with brake and fuel lines.

I finished my Johan 1968 Olds 442 in March and am currently working on an AMT 1964 Pontiac Grand Prix.

Nice build! The new project looks like it should be fun.

Goofy, congratulations for taking on that RARE JoHan kit.  the 68 was such a watershed year for the 442 as it was such an elegant Cutlass design that year, yet with so much muscle.  Love it.

My uncle and cousin had a dark metallic green 68 442.  Had whitewalls and Cutlass hubcaps or full wheel covers actually, with the off white vinyl top.  Damn that car would fly.  I learned about cars from my cousin who was a mechanic, so I bet he had that tuned just right.

 

As to the original question, I will be posting my finished build shortly, almost done.  Actually, I have a cheap - ass Jaguar on a different thread going on too...I will upate that soon.  I have built more in the last 5 months than the last several years!
