Darn it all, I love these old cars but I don't have anything in my stash that will work.
Hard to believe with about 70 unbuilt kits sitting on the shelf.

All right, got a few photos posted in Early Years and now I'm off an running.
I also came across some photos I took this summer, I had the opportunity to go to a Old Timers racing reunion and car show. There were some pretty cool old Jalopies that had been restored.

jsm Those are some cool rides and with those cowcatchers I would definitely want to be sure I had the fastest car there.

Looking forward to more updates on your jalopy.
I build models because GOD allows me to and because I can't afford the real thing!!
