When it comes to "gassers" you just gotta love those Tri-Fives.

.Of course one can't forget about "Big John" a fierce competitor "back in the day" in the "gasser wars."

Thanks for the comments guys as I enjoyed building them as I used to watch them at the strip back in the 60's and gassers are one of my fav modeling subjects. I'll try to get to post a few more soon.

Thanks MISTERTWISTER, here is a photo of the underside of "Big John" showing all the chrome that I had done by Chrome Tech USA. I took reference photos of "Big Johns" clone that he and McIntyre built and brought to the Gasser Reunion in Thompson, Ohio in 2003.

   6bblbird, I'm glad you like the gassers and I just happened to have an altered since you said that you like them also. It's the MPC Winged Express with a Bantam body from Replicas & Miniatures I believe. I also added plug wires, valve stems, an oilpan drain bolt, and the chute cord anchored to the differential housing.

I just finished this stalled build the other day. It's the AMT '33 Willys with a resin body & front clip. The paint is MCW and I also had to lengthen the height of the roll bar now that I was building a car with a stock height roof. I also added valve stems and a drain plug in the oil pan. If my memory is correct, the decals are Red Cady and also Slixx.

Thanks for the great comments guys and zaina the wheels and tires on the Bantam build I believe are from the "Wild Willie" Altered T roadster. In fact that build IS the Wild Willie kit with a resin Bantam body on it and maybe HOK paint on it.

Now THAT'S what I'm talkin' about! Come on guys post those gassers that you have buried on your shelves like oldfueler did. That's a really nice job you did on that '40 Ford coupe and I really like the color on it also. Thanks for posting!

Everything looks great on this one. The paint is gorgeous, the plug wires look to be in scale, and the injector stacks are straight! Very well done!

Thanks 6bblbird, Those stacks were tuff to get straight but i think it was worth the effort. I could have put a lot more detail in the engine bay but decided to leave it alone. The paint is Testors inca gold.
