It's neat seeing this thread still around! Here is the only one I have ever built...







And of course we have to add the cool new JL Wagon. I did have to lower the engine down into the bay, JL had it on a spacer block and it was raised over the roof line!

Since this thread was bumped back up, I'll post some of my newer rides I completed last year.

Built this for a custom contest for Lightning Fest this past year.

Johnny Lightning '67 Fury w. '76 Pontiac front bumper. I chopped off sections of the front fenders, the entire front bumper and added a custom fit hood. The headers are custom as well as the decals which were made by Minicup. The hood was made fromsheet metal sent by bob87 about a year or so ago.




Part of my 1/64 scale demo derby diorama. Gunn built the grandstands.










I've purchased dozens more derby worthy cars, just waiting for warm weather to strip the paint and do mods.

They were made by Die Cast Promotions.

I bought them individually in sets of 12 from Jaydeez.
