Amazing vision.  Really cool build.

I build models because I can't afford the real thing!

Thank you!  I’m working on an old school (think 70’s Formula 5000) style of open wheeled racer using Groovy Grader tires and a ‘moderni’ Hemi.

I saw Easter eggs on sale at Walmart after the holiday, and something just clicked...

Primer & paint are Krylon with Testors Root Beer laquer for the fenders and highlights.  The interior material is a brown denim iron on patch, with different widths and textures of ribbon for the floor mats and seat belts.  The doors, door windows open, the tailgate can be swung open or removed, the wheels roll and the front wheels steer with the steering wheel.  The suspension is coil springs with lever shocks.  The "engine" is a pivotal piston 2 stroke (http://www.pivotalengine.com/).
