This is what I call used up and put out to pasture. 41 Plymouth that saw its last feature race years ago. This one is from the AMT kit all rusted, bent. Lots of pastels, real rust dust and items from the model train section were used for the foliage. This one has been built for a while but the best part is the age don't seem to hurt it any. It looks just as ugly now as it did when I finished it!

ANY problem race car can be cured with a pound of C 4, Detonator and a 12 volt battery.

Gramps-Neal, Thank you sir for enjoying this old gloo-bomb. It was one of my first attempts at weathering years ago. Here are a couple more pics just for S & G's, and thanks to all for the nice comments.

Thanks!! I love junk yards. Up here in VT., their few and far between. But back in the day, you'd see cars like that. Sometimes in back of barns, you know...Great memories!! Neal
