Built this from a chopped up kit that I saved from the garbage.

Now that is real good looking. That is a great save.Bow Love the look, the color, and the stance. Where did you get the salt flat wheel covers(if you don't me asking)?WhistlingRichard

Now thats a save! Very nicely done. I like how you did the whole body, bumperw and whatnot all in the one color.

Feelings are like scents: The more they are analyzed, the worse they smell.

Sweet build and a nice save. You captured the salt flat vibe well. Seeing this reminds me of flipping through old Hot Rod magazines on the late 50s/early 60s as a kid and being very curious about these crazy looking salt flats racers.

Great Job! I have always leaned toward saving a kit that has been left for dead, needing another direction or chance, sometimes it is those that provide the most satisfaction and pride imho...
