'83 Hurst Olds

Here is my 83 Hurst Olds.  I'm building a copy of my 1:1 Cutlass drag race car.  My Cutlass is a '79, but it's close enough.  The body color is chrome yellow.  The engine is a 482 CI Olds, putting out about 650 H.P..

I'll post a picture of the 1:1  car when I'm able to take one while it's in storage.

I've always liked these shape GM cars especially when the wheels are WAY UP in the air ! 

I cheated with this on an old PS2 Gran Turismo game (Yeah , I'm a bit out of date !Big Smile), there's a hump in the road & "the right photo moment" + Voila ! one wheelie-ing GNX ! LOL

These G body cars are notorious for flexing all over the place,   It takes some very careful chassis tuning if you want to go straight.  I use NASCAR jacks above the rear coil springs.  If the car is eating the guardrail, I turn the right jsck down using a ratchet.
