I have built a number of jalopy cars that I like, but to choose just one, it would be this one. Great idea for a post, Paul.

I guess my favorite would be this one. I used the original owner/driver photos for reference and picked his brain for all the small details.

Here is a pic from a 1967 racing program that I still have. The driver is third from left in pic. If you have been following the SNRA, you will know the name--Terry Beckham Sr. Grady Beckham is one of his two brothers, Terry did the driving.

Ordinarily I am insane, but I do have lucid moments where I am merely stupid.
I never TRY to hit another car. But when I do I make sure its a Prius.

I guess my next most favorite build is this little car. Its not a model of any one car, just built like lots of cars I watched in the 1960's. I enjoyed this one, it was a lot of fun to build. Every part came from my scrap box and the only aftermarket items are the plug wires and seat belt hardware.

This a great group of cars.

I think the reason the doctor only has one jalopy is that his model building mind is too far advanced to fool with something so simple as these.

:lol: :)))

And, I hope he takes that as a compliment. The 7 car is a great jalopy.
