Dick Trickle Superamerica Firebird

Just finished this one up. It's a replica of Dick's 1977/78 ride. Once again, this is an HO scale slot car that is race ready. This is as close as I'll get to driving one of his cars!

Fantastic!

Reminds of all the late models back in the day . . . coverage of the All-American 400 in Stock Car Racing magazine . . . ASA vs AllPro . . . great stuff as always from you.

I need to turn some of my slot buds onto your bods.

MrGilbwrench,

Picked up a couple of those Camaro bodies from you last summer and have one sitting on the stick cleaned up and in primer. Waiting for a heat wave so, I can spray it.

Those are some great Dirt Racers! Nice very, very, very nice...

Bob...will be doing up a "what if this was my 1/1 racer" build of the Camaro...zilla

Do Your Best

Thanks Guys! I remember ya zilla, I was wondering when you'd get around to finishing the other 2. Send me some photos when there finished. By the way, these were asphalt cars back in the late '70's and early '80s in Wisconsin.
