.... this car was built for a "foreign drag car" challenge on another forum .....

... In the late '60's and early '70's, Modified Eliminator as a whole, and C/G as a class at Amarillo Dragway were ruled by R.D. Thomas of Pampa, Texas ......... his little '51 Anglia, named the Blister Bug, was powered by a 301 cubic inch Chevrolet engine backed up by a Borg Warner T-10 4-speed and an Olds 10" rear end .......... the high winding little beast would wheelstand in every gear

The car was built from a badly warped and broken Revell kit (I haven't seen one yet that wasn't in that condition) ........ the kit's Olds engine and Hydromatic were replaced with a small block Chevrolet and a 4-speed, the kit's horrible tires and wheels were replaced by Comp Resins American Mags and tires from the parts box, and the ridiculous steering wheel was replaced with a standard sized round unit like what was really in the car ........... the Car was finished with Testors paint and Slixx decals

:))) Beautiful build from a dog of a kit. Those older "local" racers were fun to watch. Used to be one at Farmington called "Mighty Mouse" powered by a six-cylinder Chevrolet. I see the typical fit issues are there on this one. sm2
I build models because GOD allows me to and because I can't afford the real thing!!
