Well here is what I have so far. Still have quite a bit of sanding, decaling, and clear coating to do but it's coming along slowly.

I used to love watching ( On 1980's UK TV..) Shepperd vs Glidden vs WJ , etc etc . 

Over here , the only guys "rich enough " to drive pro / superstock were the Scandies etc .

I've just used the 91 TBird of Glidden to do this Mk. 1 Range Rover

( I shall call it The Drag Squad. )

That is AWESOME!!!

Yes, I used to watch those races back in the day on "Diamond P" sports wtih Steve evans commentating as he had for many years. Steve Evans and Dave McClelland were the voice of NHRA Drag Racing in the 80's. I sure miss those days.

Little more progress. Need to finish out the body accessories and install the glass. Finally in the final stretch with this one.

That blue stripe must have been fun to get as straight as you got it. Nice work.

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

I've just recently shown this thread to someone who owns a mint original IROC in blue .

They love it too BTW. 

They already HAD the drag racing bug , I said find a ready prepped one ...

don't ruin its 80's originality. 

And I'm a 60's Mopar guy . 

What the .....Whistling
