Cool! The Blue Max Mustangs are always great looking funny cars, and you nailed the look. This has to be the best looking build I've ever seen of one of these AMT Mustang funny cars.

 Thank you sir, I appreciate the nice comment. However, this AMT Mustang II has some Revell parts on it. The kit headers were the single pipes put together and didn't fit very well, thus the Revell headers. And it also has a Revell "bugcatcher" injector and scoop as the kit supplied injector was a two piece unit which looked too small and toy like.
