Great work!

 

A scale model of "Jungle Pam" would be a nice addition though. :shok:

 

Cheers

Great work Niels !!!

I like the fact that they are brass and not the standard off the wall kit chassis. Heading to Picasa .... for more.

 

 

Jungle and Pam were regulars at my home track. At the local bar after the 'the show' JP, The Grump and JJ were (after a few) the approachable 'crowd' favorites.

One open competition/test and tune Wednesday I saw JJ go 6:30 / 230 three times in a row in that Vega in testing. Drinks all around that night. 

That was .05 off the National record and 'nobody' could run a Funny Car like a bracket car back then. 

 

Only got to see the Hawaiian once per year.

 

Side Note: that's JJ's Camaro on the computer screen.

Since my postings, my best friend has passed away (cancer) so we never got the change to race these cars together :-(
However It seems like his adopted son will keep on racing, so i'll pass my friends car on to him.
 
Next monday its Drag racing time in Ikast, Denmark and my cars are ready :-)

Not meaning to hijack the thread, but I noticed that these Polar Lights "Legends of the Quarter Mile" kits are currently selling for about half price at many retailers...

Paul, I used kit front wheels and 15mm inside dia/16mm wide rear rims (3mm axle) with Canadian PU rubber.

 

here the car is shown doing an actual wheelie:
