A bit longish, but with enough hilarity to make it worth watching.

Roy James, the winner of the Cadwell Park Formula Junior race went on to earn even more fame as the getaway driver for the Great Train Robbery!

Cheers,

John.

Back in the buterate days someone had a Jaguar MK-II body in 1/32nd. I had one, but it got busted up pretty quick. Not too long ago I did this 1/32nd car using a DuBro mini.

There was a lot of vintage stock car bodies, too, for those who leaned towards American iron. The basement group I belonged to did a vintage European saloon class using resin bodies I believe came from Resilient Resins. But it didn't really catch on,

This is my 1/24 saloon car from 1968. Raced a Corvair too, but too ugly to show, It got beat up doing battle.

Looking for a replacement 1/24 Corvair body.
