Was it LEGAL???
Really great job on all the details. I know they can be really strict on what is or is not…

My son and I made one back 15 yrs or so ago. I think I should post it too. Was alot of fun and alot of time spent together. He’s out of college,but, recently gone back for another degree. Miss the days when he was at home. It didn’t win the race but did win best of show. Ha was, as I was, proud of what we had done together…

I made this one for fun.I dont think it is leagle because of the wheels nonB.S.A. I had to cut some of the inside with of the rear tire so the hydrolicks could fit. As for the name of the car, it is Deora casted in 1967 by Mattel.

Can you share a little bit of your magic? Do you have pics of the construction?
