« Part 238: Working on a Bob Cat Model More done Part 239 of Toy Construction series Part 240: Chevy Corvette 1962 plunge routing »

I know what your thinking, he’s building another one but winter is just around the corner so won’t be bothering you all much longer with my dribble.

Next is why the Chevy Corvette 1962, well I like the sting ray back end but wanted the open head lights, so the best of both worlds if your into the older Vets me thinks.
My first car was a 62 Chevy Impala, almost built that but the Vet first.

Here’s the plans.
As usual this is made out of scraps. [poplar for this build] Only wide enough lumber I have at the time.

I had a small problem when I got to this point the stinken car wouldn’t fit under my band saw to cut the front and back into shape.
I had to cut out as much as I could using the table saw at 45 degrees then just do a bunch a extra sanding on the 12” disk sander to get it done.

By the time I get done it may not look or be a Corvette but it is a head scratchier for sure.
