Beautiful Poncho, really like the way you transformed it into a sedan body.  Great work.

I build models because I can't afford the real thing!

Yet another nice one!  It really looks like a serious race car, not just a street car with decals. Well done once again. Thumbs Up Sometimes folks forget that before the mid-sized musclecars hit the market in 1964, those big block full-sized cars were our heroes.

Beautiful, historic champion.Look at the big, bad dual quad 421 Super Duty engine.People would wonder how something that large could be that fast.

This is the first build I have done that actually got published in a magazine. Check out the May issue of "Poncho Perfection" magazine. Its on page 8.

Thanks, Gary. That was one of those builds I have been wanting to do for a long time, because of the history involved with it.

Tex, I have been a full size Poncho fan since 1961 and I say that you knocked it out of the ball park.
