Niether, actually. The cabs are all plastic from H.O. model kits. The Mercedes is fused to a Tyco Porsche 908 body, The Ford is fused to a AFX Too Much and the '56 Ford is fused to a tjet GT40.

MWG,

Sorry to hear about your situation. Hang in there, have some stuff of my own, do understand . . .

Anyhow, neat rides you have there. The truck stuff is way cool.

You have some very nice Willys rides as well.

Cheers,
Jas

sorry for the unclear photos. this shows the dif between the org and the custom. at this point both tjet chassis are installed and running .





Now this pile of parts will be a drag car. It will pull the front tires on take off on the drag strip .Will pull about a scale foot or two then come down .Much like a real drag car. Cut down xtraction chassis .ft axle will attach to body. Notice the front rims in picture .One has been cut down already the other still has to be narrowed a bit. This wwill let the ft rims and tires tuck under the body nice for a very low ft end. A hinge on the rear axle will let the body move up and down..
