This was lots of fun to build …...I had no plans just this

Mostly cherry some walnut and maple
as I say was fun to have freedom to do as I like ….took about 30 hours …don’t really keep track of it as well as I could

Nice job GR8’, however, there’s a difference between freedom and liberty... a ”Simple” picture and you still deviate.. Where are the coffee stains on your model??

Are you avoiding a brag about opening doors (the doors look separate)??... or do you have to Duikes of Hazzard and climb through the window.

Very nice detailed model. Did you build it just from the picture. No plans, that is real freedom.

Great job!!!
The motor, strait pipes and the wheels are my favorite parts.

Awesome! Reminds me on some old 50’s and 60’s movies with that car. Great looking details.
