Too bad Matt, I like your work and you would be a great addition to our group. Why don't you consider moving? Indiana winters are too tough for me! I grew up in New York and worked in Cincy for several year. I could not wait to leave and get to a warmer climate w/o snow

 

BTW post am image of the chassis for that car

Rich, I'm not sure if it is global warming, a change in the El Nina or what, but all the  extreme stuff seems to be somewhere else, heat, flooding, fire, cold, we seem to usually be clear of it all.   We haven't had extreme cold for a couple years.   I have a good portion of my yard covered with small limestone.  I get a load about every 2-3 years.   I haven't been able to get rock the last 2 years. I like to get it in Jan/Feb when the ground is frozen and the tractor doesn't tear up the sod.   We had no frozen ground this winter and barely 2 days last year.     I'm too old to wheel barrow a  dump truck load of rock up the hill to my back yard!!!   Maybe next winter we will have a couple weeks of a good freeze!!

That's an awesome car. Is it resin?

Mark, I took two of the Monogram 1/18 scale PC Midget racers, and cut sections out of them and made them fit the blueprint of the car,    smoothed it all down and made a mold and poured a resin body.   The chrome came from the Don Edmunds Modified racer kit.  I sacrificed scale width to keep it wide enough to fit a modern chassisl
