Playing with my six-month old pup at the park, I ended up with a torn calf muscle. Just happy to hobble back to my Jeep and home to crash on the couch. 

That was a few days ago, it's 80 % better now, but I figured it'd be a good time to finish off this car. I had done the body quite a while ago (AMT) I just needed to put a chassis together for it.

I've seen some of those links,  I love the old pic of Chris Economaki doing the pit stop interview next to the gas man, and the fan giving him the diorama he made.
