Candies & Hughes
Posted by old coyote on Thursday, November 14, 2019 4:35 PM

..... the 1983 Candies & Hughes Pontiac Firebird funny car owned by Paul Candies and Leonard Hughes and driven by Mark Oswald

..... Firebird body from Comp Resins, sitting on a late Revell chassis, Comp Resins tires and wheels, MCW paints and Slixx decals, scratch built rear fins and wing

..... this build was stalled multiple times resulting in an almost ten year build span ... the body went into the "purple pond" five times before I got a semi-acceptable paint job ... frustrations galore

I may have to grow old ....... but I refuse to grow up

Great looking funny. Nice and clean. It seems you seldom see funny cars from this era.

This site needs more drag cars, I don't see why we don't have a dedicated "Drag Cars" area instead of just lumping all mrace cars together.

Great car and nice job!
