Wood Brothers and Marvin Panch.

Here's one of my favorite '64 Fords. I've always liked the Pearl Red color on this car. Built a '65 back in '65 but didn't have the lettering skills then and there were no decals.

You would think, since he's my favorite driver, but not in the Wood's car. I think I've still got the '71 MPC ki that was used in the ad for Legend of Racing's 1/43 scale cars. It was pretty crude ( I only had one day to build it up and get it in the mail for the photo shoot for the ads). I've got his Cotton Owens '66 Charger and the HM Fairlane but no completed Wood Mercury. I've got a '73 fastback started from a Torino and a Cougar but it's not that far along. How about this one I did of his personal late model sportsman car in the same colors?

With all the newer cars looking just alike and kits of the older cars coming out, now would be the ideal time to take the plunge.

My first attempt at a realistic background built many years ago. I just cut the door openings in the side of an AMT Exterior Post Van trailer and used sheet plastic for the doors and cardboard for the roof with a styrofoam parking lot. I'll post some pics of the "fancy" new shop later.

Been a Pearson fan since I saw my first race, the 1969 "Motor state 500" at Michigan International Speedway...........I actually cried when when he split up with the Wood brothers. I heard recently that hes doing some hobby racing at a local dirt track.

the nice thing about the vintage race cars is, like mitchum said, they're all different.
with today's cars if you build one, you've built them all. Under the body almost everything's the same. Even the bodies aren't all that different.
I wish ESPN's history channel would run some of the late sixties early seventies races.
If any are available.

espn classic shows 80`s stuff but every once in a while on speedtv you can catch those old road and track shows. very cool! lots of 60`s grand national and modifieds.

I went to a "gentleman's club" because the sign said they had all the hottest models. I thought it was a hobby shop. Man, was I ever disappointed.
