A couple of Rat Rods I did a while back, if you have a paint or decal disaster on something, these can be fun to do.

I don't care for slot car drag racing but if I did this is the kind of cars I would build. Seems like all the guys into drag racing all have Funny cars with lexan bodies, this is so much cooler than those are.

Nice job on both cars. If I had to pick a favorite, it'd be the 3-window '32 with the "killer- looking" dropped front axle. Is the yellow 5-window '32 shown in the background also a slot car? If it is, could you also show it to us sometime. :)

There's a man after my own heart. I have built a few of these myself over the years. I really like

the Kal-Kar chassis. It seems to have lost the drop arm, though.
