Model car car show...
Posted by mk11 on Monday, October 15, 2012 8:16 PM

Just thought I'd share these pics from a book I've had for years, called 'Model Car Building'...




Anybody else remember it? Written in 1971 by Bill Neumann, who had been an editor of Rod & Custom at one point, among other car related jobs. Twenty five years ago, I had in my collection or had built almost every model on that table, like a lot of you other guys I'm sure.

This is just too cool. I vaguely remember photos of this in the distant past so I appreciate the  chance to look at it again.


Why can't I stand to slap these things together like I did as a teenager? On the bench 1930 Packard 734 Speedster Victoria, 1932 Duesenberg J Judkins Coupe, 1934 Ford Cabriolet, 1926 Ford Model Ts-the complete set of all six bodystyles.

I guess Bill took George Barris's idea a step further  Barris had written a "Spotlight book " for Peterson Publishing back in 1961 with a similar title . Even the model car show was a similar set up shot . I'm not aware of the latter effort , but I had the Turbine car , the Corvette and the trailers ............ Ed Shaver

See ya on the road folks
